We live in a lovely 4 bed detatched house in a nice area. OH has now been out of work for 6 months and his benefit runs out next week. We have 6 months left on the insurance for the mortgage and by then our 'cushion' will have well and truly run out (OH was made redundant 3 years ago and has survived on temp jobs until the latest unemployment) In the new year we may have no choice but to sell and rent.
We have been in this house for 11 years so it is no not somewhere I look forward to leaving, let alone dispose of all our junk to move into a smaller house. We would have to look for a private rental as there would be no other option. I don't have a problem with the renting side (we would be retiring in 10 years anyway so would probably have been selling up to fund the retirement) I just feel cheated that we have put so much into our home and then have to leave.
If OH gets a job the relief will be overwelming.
