"The Mortgage Scam - What You Don't Know"
The Constable of St Brelade is urging the States to provide more housing that more islanders can afford.
Steve Pallett's call comes following a new development in La Moye where homes have been earmarked for young couples and low income families.
But with each property costing in excess of £350,000, Constable Pallett says a fresh drive to build homes that are available for £250,000 or less is needed.
ITV News has spoken to a number of islanders who cannot currently afford to get onto the property ladder, but say they could do so if they were able to buy for about £250,000.
The Housing Department say they are working in conjunction with Planning to identify sites where new, more affordable homes can be built.
