    21, in those days building society/ bank managers had more autonomy and when he saw what we were paying for rent he approved our mortgage, even though the salary multiplier didn't give us enough. It's so bad for young people these days, I can't imagine my children ever getting a mortgage :-(

    Somehow I do not think you will find many people here who own their home.

    You mean she gave you the deposit money? As a mortgage provider would not have lent to you if you had borrowed the deposit
