Your partner may not have the key to your heart, but how about the key to your jointly-owned house? Couples are increasingly choosing a home over happiness
When it’s clear a relationship is turning sour, you may feel like showing your partner the door. But would you consider staying with them just to get on the property ladder?
According to research commissioned by London & Country Mortgages, many of you would.
A snapshot survey conducted on behalf of the mortgage broker revealed that more than one-in-10 (11%) of non-homeowners said they would be prepared to stay in an unhappy partnership if it meant they could afford to buy their first property.
And 1.8 m adults (3%) have already admitted to doing this, a figure that’s predicted to rise to 7% among those who are planning to buy in the next five years.
Do you think it’s right?
