I came across an article in The Guardian the other day:
Trust (fund) Me: How to Live Mortgage Free is a dream built on sand.
It was a review of Channel 4’s programme: How to Live Mortgage Free with Sarah Beeny.
Fiona Sturges argues that people need rich parents to get mortgage-free.
(And most people in the comments section agreed).
BUT CARLA AND I WERE IN THAT SHOW!
So the question I asked was:
“WHERE WERE WE?”
We weren’t mentioned anywhere in the article.
- My parents were working class and gave no money toward our house
- We both had modest incomes (I started on £35,000 and Carla even less)
- Our house wasn’t cheap: it’s a 3 bed in a London property hotspot
Why did Fiona and others leave us out of the debate?
You can read our story in my book, on Amazon:
