RE-view: 1. She.
‘It is like living in a rabbit hutch’ She often said emphatically and metaphorically, and He replied with
a shrug, nothing to say in reply. It was; and it would take long enough to pay for. Four rooms. Eight-floors up,
eight flights of long turning concrete rubbish chute and stairs, and fire escape, for when the elevators did not
function anyway, which was often and took days sometimes to repair. A balcony open passageway at the front,
looking over the street below, now starting to become busy with traffic. They had lived with his parents for a
time, and then after they were married, in a small rented flat in The City, before they needed to afford
somewhere to live together, and to bring-up their two small children.
Both saved, and with some financial help from relatives (deceased) they had managed to get this
place. When the housing market was ‘buoyant’, and mortgages easy to get. The Home was bought with a loan, a promissory note, deposited and co-lateraled together with their combined lives and the home itself. They were
afloat. Both worked to pay-off the loan, which although it was supposed to re-duce each year did not seem ever
to keep up with pay and prices. The loan would anyway be paid-off many times over if they were ever to pay off
the debt. If this place was ever to become their own owned nothing to pay-back; then, if they managed to keep
paying-off the loan for the ‘Shelter from the Storm’ as they called Home. That they did not actuarily now own,
and may not ever, actually own, lose-lose. To sell-back at Market Price, the difference between the paid-back
buying-price and selling-price, and of which they would have lost completely to The Bank…The Mortgage
