I moved out when I was 20. I was lucky enough to buy a place due to some inheritance after one of my grandparents died.
I'm almost the same. I don't own my home. But it was my Grandma's house.
My folks bought it for her, so she could come to live in our village. She only lived here for 6 weeks, before she died.
I was at uni then, but my Mum didn't really want to sell it - mainly 'cos she'd bought lots of new carpets, and had it painted for her. So she kept it on for me.
I think if I wanted to move away, Mum & Dad would probably just rent it out. This is really why I want to buy a place of my own...
