Hi. I have been reading more lately that renting in OZ rather than buying is more favourable than in the UK due to rental assist and other perks. Has this been the case for many of yourselves on here ? Does the thought of you owning your own go after having a long term let. Also with this, what sort of effect does it have with neighbours and the thought of people taking more pride in their own owned property. I'm not saying those who rent live in hovels, But if an area / street has a high rental market then you will see higher family turnover come and go and more likely not to be more ' close '. From where we have lived there has been very few rentals in the vicinity therefore always the same faces.
