I have spent the last 7 years trying desperately to raise enough funds to get a home of my own. However there has been one set back after another; with spending the first year living off the Statutory Maternity Pay, then my landlord of two years deciding to sell up and not giving me my deposit back; having to scrape the money together to get another deposit and currently living in a property where my daughters room has been flooded twice. I would rather use the money I would have to spend to redecotate her room towards a place of my own. I have a good job and can afford the monthly payments which is cheaper than renting; however I have to provide a 15% deposit - I'm not looking for a big expensive mortgage I'm just wanting a place to call my own. I can't offer any rewards for your help except a huge debt of gratitude for any help that you can give; and a promise to donate to assist others get on the property market - my way of paying it forward.
