Hi Clare, yeah the house is worth £170,000. My partner and I put down £50,000 with an extra £15,000 on building works, new kitchen etc and there is £106,000 left on the mortgage after 6 years of payments. We've been paying £577 a month. She works part time and earns £18,000 and I work full time and earn £24,000. The children's ages are 6 and 3. Very upsetting. Hope this helps.
There's not many on the market right now but in the region of £135,000 to £145,000
I put £25,000 in, some from my father and the rest was from my own savings £5,000 was from my grandfather when he passed away. then she put in £25,000, £20,000 from her father and £5,000 was from her previous house where she previously had a divorce from another relationship. We also had a joint savings account where we put in at least £10,000 that went towards the building works.
