One of Australia's favourite forms of investment over the years has been residential property, with its potential for capital growth and capacity to generate income on a regular basis making it a sound choice for many.

A recent trend noted by a number of statistical surveys has been the fact that younger people - particularly gen y - have been living at home for longer periods than past generations, or returning to the family home after a period of independence.

It could be that the competitive jobs markets mean that younger people are unable to find steady work on a regular basis - with most changing positions on an average of three year's - or that the behaviour is just a common trait amongst this demographic.

However, this does not mean that parents have to acquiesce to their demands immediately - after all they are adults and should be capable of paying their own way.

To this end, it is becoming more common for families to buy a home with the aim of renting it to relatives - giving them greater flexibility and control over tenant behaviour and payment methods.
