I’d never have thought I’d be in this position - and I doubt anyone will actually donate. But I’m desperate and its for my children so it’s worth a try.
I’ll be brief and to the point...
I was in a relationship for 12 years. It broke down. We had a mortgage. The court has agreed by consent order that my ex will sign his share to me (he never actually put any money in and the mortgage is interest only).
Trouble is - the mortgage companies won’t let me remortgage on my own so I’m stuck. I feel trapped. I work hard - full time. I have three children and we live in a small humble home with 3 bedrooms. It’s only an ex council house, worth a maximum of £155k - far from a mansion.
I’ve never defaulted on a mortgage payment but they just won’t lend to me. The mortgage is for £123k. I’ve been told they will only lend me £80k. So I desperately need £40k to put into my children’s home - to set me free from being financially tied to my ex partner who would happily have us kicked out if he had his way.
There’s a non molestation order in place to prevent him from continuously harassing me. Telling me I’m worthless and a waste of space.
I’m not asking anyone for the full mortgage amount - I’m not greedy. I’ll happily pay my way. Working full time with 3 kids is so hard but I do it gladly to show them a good example.
But I need the home secure over my babies heads. My dream would be that I could find a home with 4 bedrooms so my babies could have a room each - but maybe this will be the first step towards that.
Maybe some wealthy person will help us - maybe lots of people will club together and help. Maybe no one will help. Either way it’s fine - I have just run out of ideas.
I know there are lots of people worse off - we aren’t a charity case. Just a family treading water and struggling to keep our heads above water. One thing we are is genuine.
Whether you donate or not - thank you for stopping by and reading my story.
