There is a severe shortage of affordable housing, particularly in major cities like London. This shortage has led to a crisis in which many people are unable to find suitable housing that they can afford. This has then been exacerbated by the post-pandemic cost of living crisis.

Despite these challenges, there are some positive signs for the UK housing industry. With the government committing to building more homes, having set a target of 300,000 new homes per year by the mid-2020s, the scope for growth in the sector is significant.
