News from Shared Lives Plus

Friday, 15 December 2017 13:51

“You were there for when things got tough and helped me to move on with my life”

Despite paying her mortgage regularly, Sarah Bannon, a Shared Lives carer from Southampton, found the mortgage lender would not release her ex-husband from the mortgage after her divorce, as they said she could not prove her earnings.

Sarah said, “I suspect it's a situation many carers could find themselves in. Although it was just part of life, I just wanted to say thank you to Shared Lives Plus, as it was not easy to sort out, without their support”.

The admin team directed her to Judith Holman, from our Carer Support team who put her in touch with Endsleigh Mortgage Brokers who are experienced in dealing with Shared Lives carers.

Sarah said, “I was delighted with the service and advice that both Shared Lives Plus and Endsleigh gave me. I’ve now got a mortgage alone and my ex-husband and I have both been able to move on after years of this hanging over us.”
