Apart from the fact that it’s actually quite difficult to get solid informatiopn on the internet about it (for me it is) I think me and my thinly veiled might be earning too much to qualify.
The thing is, there’s no way on earth we can muster up a chunky deposit either – Without saving for years. So we’re kinda stuck in the middle. THE SQUEEZED MIDDLE.
The trouble first time home buying, that the government seemed to have completely misunderstood is that it’s not about personal income, it’s about family income.
I have lots of friends with mortgages (and homes they own outright!) and all of them, without exception got helped out. They were given inheretence or big chunks of cash for deposits, or whatever. Every single one.
We both have very poor families with no cash at all, so aren’t in this position. But can’t get “helped” to buy either.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not moaning about having too much money and my diamond shoes are too tight, I’m just saying that this scheme doesn't actually focus on the right issue – which is family wealth.
Yeah? See you in 100 insulting replies x
