Generation rent: why I’ll never live in the town I grew up in 12 Jan 8:00am Generation rent: why I’ll never live in the town I grew up in
For years I hated my neighbourhood and wanted to live in ‘proper London’, and now I can only dream of a house in Dagenham When I started this column, I thought, “Any month now, I’ll get on the property ladder.” I imagined sharing the tribulations of house-buying: the estate agents who say “compact” when they mean “claustrophobia-inducing”, and psyching out the competition at open viewings (“I hear they’re opening a sewage works near here,” I’d say loudly). That was a foolishly optimistic period. I thought my partner and I had enough for a deposit (we didn’t), and we viewed nearly 50 homes.
