Hi Clare, thank you for your reply.The cheapest one bedroom property I have seen is £45,000. Our house is our only asset. Now that my husband has retired he gets £620 per month state pension. He has an ANNUAL pension of £1,100. As I work nights I can pick up appox £1,100 per month, but I am due to retire in September 2015., Elaine
No. I really want to stay in our house which has been our home for 35 years. It is going to be a struggle to do that but at least I am not paying any rent or mortgage, If I thought selling would benefit either of us I would go along with that but we are both going to loose if we sell. Can my husband force me to sell?
Thank you Clare, the upshot of that is that my husband has no funds either so he can't afford to push me. If we were to sell we would both end up with very little and certainly not enough to move on. My other advice has been to "do nothing" which is what I plan
