Our house was bought for £460,000 and we estimate in four years is probably £525,000 maximum (we live in south east, where prices are high). £263,000 remaining to pay as of August 2013, with monthly payments of £2000.
From our first house we made a profit of £100,000, but I initially put in £40,000, released from a property that I half ownered with my mother. She now has ownership of this property.
We each have a car, but both are in my husbands name.
I have an ISA worth approx £4000.
Neither of us has pensions.
My current bank account has about £1000. We transfer money to and from each others accounts as needed to pay credit cards and other expenses.
My husband pays £9000 a year into my account, which I spend as I wish, generally on children's activities, tuition, some house expenses and my living expenses.
We do not have any outstanding debts.
My husband earns in excess of £100,000 per year before tax.
I earn £13 per hour and at the most work 12 hours per week .
I am a qualified nurse, so I should be able to earn equivalent if I were to up date my skills and work more hours. Full time work without considering child care I estimate I could earn £27,000.
