16h How punitive rents encourage more imaginative alternatives
The Guardian
Tenants and others who found unusual ways to keep a roof over their head in an era of record costsRenting a property in the UK can be a bleak business. The average monthly rent rose to £932 last month and in London it is even more expensive at £1,588, according to new figures. It is of little surprise then that more young people are choosing to stay in the family home. Recent research showed nearly a million more young adults live with their parents than was the case two decades ago. The proportion of people aged 20 to 34 who live with their parents has risen from 19% in 1997 to 25% in 2017 – some 3.4 million people, according to the thinktank Civitas. With spiralling rents leaving many people with barely any disposable income, let alone the means to save towards a deposit, some are now choosing alternatives.

17h Banks could easily stumble over Brexit and buybacks
The Guardian
Many lenders may report decent results this week. But this is no time for long-suffering shareholders to relaxThere is an old Lloyds Bank television commercial featuring those darlings of the 1980s sitcom, Jan Francis and Nigel Havers. Francis’s character has just bought a house from Havers and the ad has the pair bumping into each other at the supermarket checkout. The encounter prompts Francis to give Havers a few unsolicited personal finance lessons, by explaining how her new Lloyds banking card means she has to write fewer cheques (it’s debatable whether the ad is dated more by the plot or the actors).
