I fear we'll lose our home after taking out a loan we didn't even want
DEAR DEIDRE: A LOAN we didn’t even want has ruined our lives.
Ten years ago we were cold-called by someone who persuaded me a £35,000 loan he offered was a really good deal. I’m 63 and my wife is 61.
A couple of months after the loan came through, a different firm told us it had been sold on to them.
At that point we discovered the loan was secured against our house.
Now this company has told us we must repay the entire loan by September.
Over the past ten years we have paid £400 a month and still owe exactly the same amount.
I’m really worried we will lose our home.
