More adults living with parents

More than 1.6m adults are forced to live with their family or friends because they are unable to move out, a study has revealed. Research from the National Housing Federation revealed that the number has risen by almost 100,000 in England in two years as a shortage of starter homes and affordable flats has driven up rents and kept house prices high. Most of them, about 1.3m, are single adults who typically cannot leave their parents' home or were forced to move back after university or living elsewhere.
