 CONSUMING ISSUES: House prices top the nation's list of housing concerns. Listen to Paula Higgins, from HomeOwners Alliance
New research from the HomeOwners Alliance has found the housing crisis is deepening - with regards availability and quality of homes, and as a result first time buyers are becoming more desperate. The 2016 Homeowner Survey conducted by YouGov for HomeOwners Alliance and BLP Insurance indicates almost three quarters (73%) of non-homeowners now say they would like to own their home compared to 69% last year, 68% in 2014 and 65% in 2013. And house prices, the ability to get on the property ladder and saving for a deposit continue to top the nation's list of housing concerns. Georgie speaks to Paula Higgins, Chief Executive of the HomeOwners Alliance

CONSUMING ISSUES: Why is your credit rating important? Listen to Lisa Hardstaff and Joel Davis from EQUIFAX
Are you looking to get a mortgage, a loan, even a new mobile contract? How much does a credit report matter? And what are the things that could impact it? Your credit rating can affect your ability to borrow money using products such as credit cards, loans and mortgages. If your credit rating isn’t in the best shape there are things you can do to build it up again and fix any problems. Popular myths include that the credit behaviour of anyone living at the same address could affect your credit score rating and that old debts don't count.
