    Shared ownership extra borrowing 7th Jan 18 at 9:27 PM

    We currently have a 50% share worth £165k our mortgage is £78k and we have £30k in debt so we wanted to borrow on our mortgage to clear the debt. We had this agreed with Leeds until we all realised our lease doesnít contain a mortgagee protection clause. We canít find an alternative but I canít believe there is nothing we can do considering weíve made over £60k profit.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    hit the debt free wannabee forums to really hit that debt. That's a lot of debt for only 05 ownership. Consider you will have 100% costs with running a household and repairs from the freeholder
