With prices for properties beyond the reach of many, house inflation far outstripping wage inflation, and a shortage of houses to rent at affordable prices, tens of thousands of people have been impacted by the housing crisis. We are interested in your story.

You may be a tenant paying punitive rent and unable to save for a deposit. You may be a landlord who is struggling because of taxes, rogue tenants or competition from institutional investors. You may have been forced to move back home with your parents to save for a house. You may be those parents. You may be commuting long distances and even living in your car. You may have come up with a clever solution and want to share it with others. Almost everyone has been affected in some way by the housing crisis, we would love to hear your story.
