Hope someone out there can help me. My home is about £20,000 in negative equity. I have the dreaded together mortgage with northern rock and have a 22000 loan attached. So if I were to sell I would owe about 44000 to NR. My home is now rented out as I had to move as recently my mum took ill and I wanted to be there for her. I am now renting a 4 bedroom house for me and my kids which is costing me £895 pcm. I am receiving £700 p c m for my home but the mortgage is £1078 pcm. So I am £378 out of pocket every month to keep the mortgage going and it's interest only. I have a good credit rating although I have about £10,000 on credit cards which I am trying to pay off. The problem is this extra spend is killing me, I feel like I'm throwing away money. Does anyone have any solutions out there? Any ideas or advice is appreciated. :evil: Is there any help for people with neg equity or any ideas on how to solve this so that I can still get a mortgage again in the future

Try multi letting your rooms rather than the house - for instance - look at the cost of a studio flat in your area, say £250? 350? and then let the rooms for this amount - so four rooms at say 300 each would bring in £1200 rather than 700. the tenant benefits from having a bigger space, the whole house, and you benefit from having extra rent coming in?

I'm a L-Plate cagger - new at all this but determined to learn as much as I can, to help as many others as I can, and to fight back as often as I can!:-x

Any help or advice from me is offered in good faith, based on my knowledge and experience gained either from here or from my own cases. I am NOT a legal expert. There are several other CAG members and the site team who are much better qualified than me. Please do not make any decisions based on my advice alone.

Donate as much as you can to this site as often as you can! We need to keep on helping each other.
