Balance Sheet Assignment

Isabella bought her first flat for £90,000 using a repayment mortgage of £63,000 in 2017 (Table 1). Her parents paid for the deposit on the flat. She is living on her own and bought a two-bedroom flat. She also decided to train to be a plumber and took out a personal loan from an auntie to pay for the training. She is now working as a plumber. She has a net monthly income of £1,750 and she spends on average £1,800 a month.

In 2019, Isabella’s financial situation has changed in a number of ways. In the area where she lives, property prices have fallen by 6%. Her current account balance has fallen to zero, she now has a £100 overdraft and her credit card debt has risen fivefold. Her savings in her instant access savings accounts have dropped by £600 and she now has £35 cash. The value of her repayment mortgage is now £58,000. Her mortgage repayments are £350 per month. She still owes her aunt £5000.

Isabella is considering making changes to address her financial situation. One option that she is considering is to let her spare room to gain extra income, subject to approval from her mortgage provider. Another option is for her to try and sell her flat and move back into her parents’ house.
