When do you become 'too old' to still be living with your parents? Watch

    I'd say 25. Unless, you were in some hectically difficult university course that took up all of your time. Like medicine perhaps.

    I inherited the house I live in when my uncle die. So technically.. my family lives with me

    Although im only 18.

    What do you all think of people who can afford to move out, but choose to stay at home so they can save up to get a deposit on a house?
    I think that's fairly sensible as long as you're actually doing that, if they're spending a lot of money that they could be saving then really they're just using the excuses of having less bills to their advantage. But if they have a job that pays enough that they'll soon be able to afford to pay a deposit and take on a mortgage then that seems a lot more sensible than wasting money on rent/bills each month so that it takes you longer to get a house.

    For me, buying a house is not happening in the foreseeable future so I'd rather live independently than be working and living at home and suddenly find myself in my late twenties or early thirties having never made an attempt to live independently.

    Well, after uni I plan to share a house with some friends as soon as is possible. I'd say at 23 you wanna be looking at moving out for sure and after 25 it would be weird. I mean a lot of people are married at that age.

    When its appropriate/feasible. I've just graduated and have a job starting in September for a year after which I need to do a postgrad course. In an ideal world I'd do my postgrad at UCL but I wouldn't mind moving back home for it just to make money issues a bit easier. Not sure I can afford to pay rent plus fees and living costs for a postgrad without living with my parents.
