So the Millennials (I have to say I hate the generic term, people are not flocks of sheep) think that inheritance is their way onto the property ladder.

Sorry to wipe this misnomer away from the 'snowflakes' but, given I see a lot of residential transactions, very few are funded from inheritance.  Yes, a lot receive monies from the "bank of mum and dad" but few inherit huge sums to allow them to buy their own property.

In my humble and expert opinion, if you want something to happen you have to make it happen yourself rather than waiting for someone else to do it for you - or in this case - die.  First time buyers have never had it so good.

Help to Buy, Help to Buy ISA's, Lifetime ISA's, Armed Forces Help to Buy and Shared ownership are but a few of the schemes open to people to help them buy their own home.  My message to the Millennials is simple, don't wait just do.
