A recent report http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3168885/One-three-face-renting-retirement-2040-Millions-future-pensioners-face-later-years-properties-don-t-levels-home-ownership-plummet.html showed many people will face retirement renting or with an unpaid mortgage . It is never to early to plan ahead for your housing needs in later life , even though most of us put our head in the sand. Some forward planning would help avoid moving several times in later life and new solutions like co housing are springing up. If you already have a secure tenancy treasure it and consider your options. New tenancies are not likely to be as user friendly
and flexible . Your right to exchange could mean a move to a better retirement base …if you research and plan ahead.
