    Inheritance 12th Dec 17 at 9:44 AM
    My son if off to Uni shortly and will obviously end up with student loan "debt". Thinking way ahead if he comes into any inheritance (or any windfall for that matter), is he oblidged/required to use this towards paying off any student loan ? Would like to think he could put it towards his own property etc

    NO. Think of the student loan repayments like a tax on earnings. No need to pay more back than required by income.

    I think that is correct, however, I think that if that money is invested and earns interest, tthe interest may be considered as an income.
