One of Britain’s biggest mortgage lenders has found that 70% of young people now believe that the homeownership dream is over for their generation.
Having carried out the largest-ever survey of potential first-time buyers, Santander said its own figures suggest less than 25% of 18- to 34-year-olds will be in a position to buy a home by the year 2026.
The Spanish-owned bank said that while 91% of the young people interviewed still aspire to own a home, over two-thirds said it was unlikely to happen unless they received the deposit from their parents.

How does S24 affect more young people to get on the housing ladder?
Doesn't it just make it harder for the small landlord to survive?
I am not in favour of S24 and it's the reason why i have put the breaks on in expanding into more properties (I currently have 2 in the UK). While i think S24 is unfair I am in favour of more affordable housing for young people in general.
S24 is there to try and put Landlords off buying more property as you have stated

The idea is, if we don't buy, FTB have a chance of buying
The Tories introduced S24 because they want more home ownership long term.
The reason most people cant buy property is because its too expensive in relation to their wages. Makes no difference whether landlords are buying it or not IMO.
The former concensus view was that BTL was "hoovering up" a lot of the available cheaper homes - and thus availing less choice for aspiring FTBs - so if 4000 BTLs are being offloaded on the market monthly (BBC Monday) there will be more choice for FTBs.
mmmm, well i can understand that, but i wonder what % of the market we are talking about, has to be tiny tiny tiny so probably has very little affect, just my view but seems logical to me. Main problem IMO is real estate is just too expensive
where supply = demand is the price. if demand falls then all other things being = the price falls (and more ftb are in the game!). simples economics.
ALL I SAID WAS:
less buyers = less demand = lower price.
ARE YOU SERIOUSLY DISAGREEING WITH THAT?
of course not. if a large resource rich group such as landlords stop buying the the market slows, repossessions increase, forced fire sales increase, expectations fall, optimism reduces and eventually those who want to sell or have to sell reduce their asking prices to reflect the new economic reality.
