PHOTO: FILE PHOTO – Why aren’t the single parents sleeping in cars with their kids being given these places?

At 33, I’ve done something I consider myself very fortunate to be able to do: I own my own property and have said goodbye to landlords, rent hikes and flatmates.

The apartment I bought was no stranger to me. I had rented a carbon copy in the same building eight years ago and loved it so much I jumped at the chance to own one for myself.

I loved being right in the middle of the city in a beautiful modern building that, at less than 10 years old, boasted such facilities as a gym, secure swipe access and swimming pool.


Don't be shy! Have your say....
