Government Shared Equity

Ask a Question

OK you lovely lot in my phone ☺️ I need a little advice so 9 years ago we took out a shared equity and it nearly time to pay back. Has anyone in this group done this before did you sell house to pay back or take out a loan. We think best selling to get some money back and go for a older house with less years mortgage. We were young a daft and not really looked into deeper.

I think you need to see a financial advisor about this.

You need some professional advice, Ann - you could always look on the Money Saving Expert website and see if this topic has been answered before. Just googling your main text brought this up so worth a read about the problems of selling.

angemski thank you if we were to remortgage that all depends on income of course with loss hours in work we likely not get now so selling may only be but what we didn't know at time was that if house price increases whice it has by nearly 30,000 that they won't 20 percent of the roof value not what we borrowed. I will never do a similar scheme again

Ann1984 I think a lot of people fell for the chance to get on the property ladder, regardless of the negatives. I sometimes wonder if this will be an issue raised in the future because of it's pitfalls and unfairness like PPI. Hope you get some good advice.
