I was told that in france you can sign up to 25 year leases, and these can be passed from generation to generation.....there are also controls in place to stop the landlord raising the rent on a whim....

So why would anyone rent their house out if they can't reclaim it for 25 years or maybe longer? Won't it lead to a shortage of rented housing?

SDW, of course I don't have a problem, but I don't really need to tell you that as you already know it.
You have already said that you don't look down on renters and neither does your son, which is good and I thank you for that.
I should also clarify that I don't think receiving parental assistance to get a mortgage is any kind of shame, but what is a shame is if one then goes on to feel superior (or attempt to make others feel inferior) to those who are not so fortunate as to receive such help (and thus may find themselves in rented accommodation against their will). That is just unkind and wrong.
