In the example what is the interest she would pay over term i have given to give some idea whether it is a good proposal from her solicitor.

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
You need to work out whether 4% is simple or compound interest. For each £1000 that has been loaned interest would be 11p per day. That is how I have worked out the interest and that is on a simple basis, not compound.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
