MSE Poll: What proportion of your income is spent on your mortgage/rent?

Poll started 7 February 2023

Take what you pay on your mortgage or rent (including any service charges or ground rent but NOT council tax, insurance or other bills), and let us know roughly what percentage of your monthly take-home pay/income it is. We're also keen to know whether you've remortgaged and/or whether how much you pay has increased recently amid interest rate rises.
