Hi Jo we sold our house for £320,000 but with expences we received £316,000 and the bungalow we are buying is for £235,000 plus expences. This leaves us with around £70,000 I think, but we were hoping to help our daughter with it to get onto the property ladder as she has been renting and wishes to buy her own place nearer to us to help look after us both as we are getting older and my health is getting worse. I can hardly walk anymore so I;m stuck indoors all time and use mobility aids to get about. My husband is also having trouble with his knees and stairs were getting to much for him also so much so he had couple falls down stairs needing hospital treatment. This is the reason we sold our house as I cant do stairs anymore so we could buy a bungalow which would be satisfactory for both of us and could house my mobility scooter as well.
