Well over one-third of private tenants are not saving to buy

New research appears to show that well over a third of British tenants do not save to buy at all.

A poll of 2,986 tenants shows 62 per cent saving to buy and 38 per cent not doing so; of the latter category, almost half say they cannot afford to save money in addition to paying their rent and other expenses, while a further third admit that they would rather spend their money than save anyway. 

Amongst the savers, the average money in the bank was a mere £3,450, with most renters saying they could only save around £2,300 per year.

Even with a 10 per cent deposit on a £200,000 home, this means tenants would take upwards of seven years to save enough to buy - assuming prices didn’t rise in the meantime. 

The survey was conducted for financial website Vouchercodespro.co.uk
