Yep agreed, I'm actually moving out very soon, not for this reason though

Wouldn't be surprised

If he did, that shows a total lack of respect. I wouldn't live with someone like that, and would move out ASAP.
Yep - he admitted to it, said he drove it 4 times. (so it's at least 4 times)

On the other hand, owning a home offers security, particularly if you have a family. If you have a wife and kids, there's no way you could live in an apartment if you could afford to own in fee.
Totally ok with potentially getting kicked out, if that means I'm not stuck with a risky asset with low yield (and worst case potential for depreciation) that would tie up a disproportionate amount of my wealth for a very long time.

I see your point though, and will prob change my mind couple yrs down the road. But buying anything without considering how much it costs doesn't seem like good business, esp when it comes to the most expensive thing u can purchase

If you live in London then it's much better value to buy so congrats. I know the area pretty well actually...went to school there, you can guess which one.
