The debate is in regards to renting vs. home ownership in the UK. Both sides appear to agree that it is difficult to become a homeowner in the UK. One side argues that this is a bad thing and that more should be done to make it possible to own. She argues that it provides security and is good for family and is a type of investment. The other side argues that attempts to encourage home ownership have failed and more should be done to protect the renter. Renting, he argues is not a sign of failure but a legitimate choice and that it is essentially the future.

- If you like the city life, renting an apartment will provide you flexibility and freedom.
