    With the housing market in the South East of England making it more difficult than ever to become a homeowner, this report considers the options available to first time buyers before investigating the impact of parents on the first time buyers market. Literature suggests that parents may be playing a significant role. However, the issue is yet to be researched in any great depth. In an attempt to obtain empirical evidence to support the broad hypothesis that parents are having a significant impact on this market, two forms of research have been conducted. Analysis of the data would appear to provide only limited support of the literature review and it is argued that further in depth research is required. This report does however support two hypotheses namely "those with parental help are able to buy at a younger age", and "those with parental help are able to live closer to where they work".
