Are you likely to face any hidden costs when renting a property? I’m planning to have another child and need a bigger house but have no savings, what can I do? I want to buy my first property, how much will I need for a deposit?

These were just a few questions that were answered in the most recent Legal & General #MoneyHangout. The Google+ hangout, which took place last week, was focused on finding, buying and renting property in the UK.

Members of the public had been encouraged to put forward questions on social media (and also via this blog). They were then put to an expert panel that featured;

  • Miles Shipside Commercial Director of property search website Rightmove
  • Roger Harding, Director of Policy and Campaigns at housing and homeless charity Shelter and
  • Jo Eccles, Founder of Central-London property finder Sourcing Property and a columnist for the Metro newspaper.

The panel was joined by Legal & General chief executive officer Nigel Wilson, who chaired the discussion.

This was the third #MoneyHanout organised by Legal & General. The first focused on family finances while the second considered pensions. Further hangouts are planned and the aim is to give people the confidence and knowledge so they can make informed decisions about their finances.
