Hello All!
I have seen many videos on how to get mortgage free in 5-7 years but most are American. I was wondering (and apologies if this has been covered before and i have missed it) if there are equivalent UK plans? Could someone please advise me in the right direction. Many Thanks!

    Just read the diaries, maybe not MF in 5-7 years, it all depends on . . . Balance and income.

    ps Just realised 5-7 plus years is do- able, I'm on track for 7yrs plus a few months :D
