Men take control of moving home

Men take control of moving home

Men are more likely to assume sole responsibility for the financial side of moving home, a new study has shown.

According to figures from Halifax Estate Agents, almost half (48 per cent) of men who are in relationship said they alone had taken financial responsibility for the move.

This compares to 34 per cent of women also in relationships.

However, the decision of where to move was revealed to be more likely to be a collaborative effort, with 65 per cent of couples saying they had both had input into the decision.

This was even higher among younger couples in the 16-25 age range, where 72 per cent said they had come to a joint decision over where to live.

Gordon Edwards, managing director, Halifax Estate Agents, commented: "Buying a house is the biggest purchase most of us are likely to make.

"If you are deciding to sell your home, purchase a new property or sorting the finances for a move, it's important to involve your partner in the decision-making process."
