The stress of buying a house can age people by two years, according to research.

A survey by online conveyancing firm In-Deed of 200 people who have bought or sold a house in the last three months showed that two-thirds believed the experience had aged them.

Many of those questioned reported hair loss, short-term memory failure and diminished sex drive.

In-Deed co-founder Harry Hill said: "Conveyancing can be tedious, time-consuming and frustrating, so it's no surprise that it causes so much stress."
