Struggling to get a foot on the ladder


Louise Aiken and her husband Seb are first-time buyers. With a baby due in April, the family were looking for a two-bedroom home.

The couple have struggled to raise the deposit needed to secure a mortgage and have decided to keep renting.

BBC Two is planning a major series for May on property prices and the downturn called Propertywatch. The team would like to hear stories and views from as many different people as possible from all over the UK. Please let us know your experiences.
