    We were in a similar position and gave up the business and house, it all happened very quickly. At the time I had no idea where we were going to live or do for an income. I then remembered that a friend had parked an old American RV at our place for a while and suggested that might be the best plan for the wife and I plus the two dogs. We started hunting and a month later had purchased a Winnebago Brave with all the money we had managed to get from selling all that was not bolted down. At the time we put some possessions into storage, and they are still there.

    That was two years ago. Relieved, certainly. Would I go back, if I had my way no and the wife is getting more used to our lifestyle and is now making a new pelmet as I type this. I now have a part time job in the West Country and our life is on the up. But most importantly we do not have all the stress and worry of before.

    I just wish you the best of luck. And remember, you are not the first in this position, will not be the last, but you have the power to make a new future now without the burdens of the past.

    Good Luck

    Michael

    I am so sorry to hear that but am pleased you have managed to sell your house rather than have it re-possessed.

    Now you have cleared all your debts you'll be able to start again fresh and although you may feel at rock bottom right now, when you draw breath take stock you will find that you have the most important thing ever - each other.

    Onward and upward. You have survived this and things will get better - much better.

    Sorry to hear of your situation, as others have said not the first and you won't be the last. Things can only get better now with the stress out of the way :BigGrin:

    Not many are brave enough to admit on an open forum that they have financial problems.. but there are tens if not hundreds of thousands in the same boat.. it's not a crime.. nor anything to be ashamed of..

    You can live in your motorhome as a temporary home for as long as you want.. but sooner or later you will need or want a house .. and yes, a letter box.. My advice is to get down to your local council and declare yourself homeless and apply for a council house... It may take months or even years but you will get a home.

    We were in similar circumstances back in 2009 when after living for 3 years in our RV .. we wanted to give up, but hadn't the cash for a house.. so we rented private but I went to the council and got put on the housing list..

    I see see from your profile you are near retirement.. this will be treated as a housing priority.. they should have properties for over 60s.. sheltered housing.. It only took 6 months to be offered a house which we moved into in Feb 2010..

    Think not of it as the end.. but the start of a new journey.. good luck :Smile:

    Good luck , at least you were able to sell your property. Not have it repossessed. I think scotjimland has some good advise in the previous post.:thumb:

    ou haven't lost your house,you have made the decision to dispose of an asset to realign your finances. You have done the best thing and can now think with a clear head. It really pisses me off when I see leeches on society living off the fat of the land and our taxes,while good honest people who get caught in a financial trap get no assistance whatsoever.Have you considered an occupation with accommodation,even a site warden.
    Good luck
