Question.

Recommended Posts

As title suggests. Where is the evidence?

Ive had many friends get mortgages in the last 6 months, ive got a friend who sells mortgages for barclays, another whos been asked back for an interview as mortgage consultant. Rates are low. Every month the banks lending figures are rising.

Yet this site seems o be of the belief that if you go for a mortgage they point blank turn their back on you. Nonsense.

1 couple i know have been refused a mortgage, they both have debt problems, one is self employed, the other has only been in a job 6 weeks, im pretty sure they would have been refused before all this kicked off.

Deposit.

I can borrow money, in the case of a mortgage with a massive deposit (ooer missus), or an unsecured loan with a whopping interest rate attached, or I could use my credit cards which are now stratospheric (the exception being the 0% deal I took out last year). Money is available, I just don't like paying massive interest, and I certainly don't fancy the property market, the last of the suckers are being tempted into the "bull run". I think I'll sit this one out thanks.
