That sounds a good idea.... but if it's the sort of complex I'm thinking of, you may be landed with hefty bills each year for maintenance etc. on top of your usual bills. But, as I say, I might be thinking of the wrong sort of complex.
The mortgage advisor mentioned equity release but I don't think I like that idea really.
I'd say definitely forget that Queenie
Queenie, I'm sorry to hear your husband lost his job. It was only recently he got it too wasn't it?
Listen petal, think positive. It isn't all bad on the job front.
There are still plenty around, even for your youthful 62yr old hubby. After all, it was only recently he found the latest job. Even though it is no more the fact he got it, means he still employable
Is good walking? To fill in the time while he's looking for another job, how about doing a bit of dog walking? Is he good at anything DIY - lots of people need handymen.
Somewhere in my memory banks there were some people who blogged about their ability to live under a certain amount of money, which was really quite a poultry sum.
No idea what they were called, but it's bound to be on the net somewhere.
Wishing your husband luck in finding his next job petal. He's sure to be feeling deflated, but with you nudging him, he'll bring himself up again. Betcha
