Has it ever been harder to be a homeowner as it is right now? We don’t think so, with food costs rocketing and the cost of energy bills reaching a scary amount. As widely reported, the energy price cap increased to £1971 from April 1st, which is a 54% rise on the old price cap figure of £1277, and it’s not going to end there, unfortunately.
