Recommended Posts

Can you help?

http://www.thisisstaffordshire.co.uk/news/NEED-163-40k-SAVE-HOUSE/article-3563338-detail/article.html

Is there nothing that some people will do?

Although i have some sympathy reading the story, what a way to use your situation and how long would she have known what would happen but had to wait for the happy occasion? Some interesting comments.

http://savesamshome.weebly.com/ During this horrible time in my life I met a new man and we started a relationship, his name was Tony. We hadn't been together for that long when to my amazement I found out I was pregnant.

Sex education in Staffordshire obviously leaves a lot to be desired if a 40 year old has unprotected sex and is then amazed to become pregnant. I believe sympathy still resides between shit and syphillis in the dictionary.

Get enough people to think of the children and/or get enough publicity to get the taxpayer funded bank to back down, and its a free house.

As long as people fall for this nonsense, there will be those that try it on.

And why didn't they mention all the other benefits she will be getting including csa? There seems to be plenty if deception here.

Sorry but it's everyone for themselves, family and friends now. Anyone who doesn't work that out will end up hungry and homeless.

She has family - what are they doing to help?

4 week old baby...the baby daddy dissapeared quick.

People need to realise homeownership is a responsibilty, not purely a right. Having a baby at such a time is stupid.

If its just her and the baby a bedsit will do. Its all she'd get if she wasnt a homeowner.

4 week old baby...the baby daddy dissapeared quick

Her entire tale seems to rely on her blaming 3 rough and unstable sorts she chose to partner up with, who treated her bad, but probably satisfied her base lust. Daddy didn't want to know about the baby so let taxpayers pick up the tab.

Some of us can't afford or are unwilling to pay the price for the flat she had, which wasn't good enough for her, before she chose to take expansion business risks with debt and a bigger mortgage to buy a house. Consequences. Deal with them.

After an anxious 18 hours waiting for a scan, I found out that both me and my baby had survived.

Tony, however, was nowhere to be seen. He never came to see me but rang the hospital and phoned me, accusing me of lying about being ill.

I came out of hospital to an email from Tony, saying that he had never loved me. He said everyone had said he was a b*****d and he agreed !At least he was an honest b*****d....! I’ve never heard from him again.

She finds herself in a bad position.

Is there a way out?

She is playing the game she has done.

Namely working to pay off a mortgage, even starting her own business and creating jobs during the boom.

She now finds herself with a very young child at 38, unemployed & on her own, perhaps even unable to trace the father? (Although if via an internet dating site, then it is perhaps possible if the authorities step in [18 years worth of CSA payments would make it worthwhile!], it wasn't a ONS).

She's not playing the system, else she would have gone bankrupt and claim housing benefit. She intends to pay back her debts. Although she will be unable to work until the child can be placed in school.

The bank worker was very willing to offer a long term flat to rent (empty B2L!)

I'd rather the single mum got the capital yield from the housing benefit, than the banker! But she cannot claim HB, she must claim it on the behalf of a landlord...

This is a product of our society. Many on here cannot afford a home.

To raise a family.

to even contemplating starting one!

She'll be having hot flushes and infertile in a short while! She had a baby just in time, even though her financial life has been ruined.

0.7 less than 1.7 babies, so her and her peers pensions won't be brilliant.

My friend, 23 has a child, him and his partner are separated. Weekly he works and earns £200 after tax, she claims £250 in benefits. She split up with him. Together their joint income would be £320. He pays her £30 a week, their incomes are thus £170 and £280. (All figures before housing costs, she has a house, he surfs sofas whilst looking for a new place).

My friend never wanted to split up with her, even though he is actually better off financially.

Me thinks the talk of a LOST GENERATION is not the legions of unemployed. But those whom were never born due to the perverse financial/capital/welfare system.

Sell, and apply for a council house.

---

Perhaps she should write to the bank, perhaps they can be charitable?

Some housing associations will buy the home and the property becomes theirs. She becomes a tenant.

Housing benefit makes this a very attractive way for housing associations to acquire property. And whilst she loses out, the bank is bailed out cool.gif

Why didn't she use the 40k to stop the eviction?

She owes 40k on a defaulted business loan. The bank is threatening to sell the house unless the loan is paid. The 40k, she has had the cheek to ask for, is to pay off the business loan!!

It is staggering that anyone could think that this was unreasonable. It is also an affront to sensibility to go begging for money to pay off a business debt, purely so that she doesn't have to pay it out of her own pocket!

It seems beyond her wit to downsize, by selling the house, which would pay off the business loan, and her mortgage; and finding somewhere smaller, or moving in with parents.

Whilst also using the birth of her son to pull at the emotional heart strings.

HPC'ers scare me.

How can you laugh at this woman?

After 38 years, only one child, and a difficult predicament.

(I recall reading 12 staff, 5 years ~ 60 years of work, more than the average human!)

How many children have you brought up to adulthood?

Her finances might not be brilliant, and I, like most, disagree with rewarding the bank to save her.

Starting a business nowadays appears to be rational only if you wish to do it altruistically and take on a lot of debt and spend it on wages before going bankrupt.

But she is tied to the bank.

Many are tied to the bank.

Not me. I have no mortgage. But 12 million + do!

How much money do interest only mortgages leech out of the economy! A growing parasitic mould upon Britain!

Some supportive comments there from Gary Elsby..he used to be a NuLabor devotee whose copious deranged ramblings on Guido's site caused a great deal of amusement.He failed to get selected for Labour candidate for Stoke,and Mandelslime's chum Tristram Hunt was parachuted into the seat.Elsby stood for the election as an Independent Labour candidate instead.Nice to hear he's still around.

12 staff, 5 years and enjoying success by selling expensive furniture and fittings in an economy raging away in Labour's credit boom. A great sustainable success story isn't she, and others similar to her.

You ask how many children some of us brought up to adulthood. Some have delayed having as many children as they would like until they know they are reasonably certain they can provide for them in the long term, and house them too, which often means preferring to own rather than rent long term.

Whereas others such as this woman was happy to trade up to a house, jumped ahead of others, happy to take on lots of debt to buy at her 2006 price. Other more sensible people may not have been willing to do that and many of them are on the forum. She then secured further debt on it for her business.

Starting a business in 2006 in soft furnishings could be like you describe, altruistic, or rather stupid, ending with losing your house that you've placed secured debt on. Today there are still plenty of opportunities to set up in business from scratch today if you have intelligence and specialised, emerging and in demand sectors, but probably much harder in saturated markets reliant on big consumer spending like selling £500 sofas. You want to set up in business in 2011 trying to sell sofas for a living, you're welcome to it, and even back in 2006 you should have know sofa selling business would have got tough if the economy stalled.
