Three in 10 parents have grown-up children still living at home
Press AssociationGrown-up children are increasingly likely to continue enjoying the comforts of living with their parents rather than moving out and spreading their wings, according to new research.
Three out of 10 parents (27%) have at least one adult child, aged between 21 and 40, still living with them at home, said the National Housing Federation. Two-thirds of those parents (66%) said this was because their son or daughter could not afford to rent or buy their own place.
The survey of more than 1,100 parents of adult children found that nearly nine out of 10 people (89%) believe there is not enough affordable housing in the UK.
