Hi clare thanks
the house is worth in the region of £250,000, because it had been left to us, there was no mortgage to start with but it is an old house and needed work doing on it so we took out a £25,000 mortgage and we have around £21,000 still to pay back. Our two little boys are 2 and a half and one and a half, as for financial contribution, he doesn't pay towards the mortgage but we share all the bills. We have just put an extension on, it's on going but he is doing the work and has contributed to the materials needed for it.
Around £2,000 - £3000 for the extension if that's what you mean
We have a car, although it's in my name and he has a boat I'm a stay at home mum, so the only money I get is child benefit and child tax credit. And recently my husband who was self employed did his back in, so he isn't working at all at the moment and is claiming employment support allowance so our income (hopefully not for ever has dropped significantly).
