Ninety-year-old widow faces sickening £177k bill to repay a £22k mortgage

Banks rule, don't they?

A 90-year-old widow is facing a £177,750 bill to pay off the mortgage on her home, which was worth just £22,500 when it was taken out in 1989.
The sickening contract will be triggered the moment she decides to move home, landing her with a bill that will see her mortgage provider Barclays pocket a 690 per cent profit.
After losing her husband last year, Mrs T is now living alone in their three-bedroom semi-detached family home in Essex. However because of the contract they signed 27 years ago, it is likely she will never be able to afford to downsize.
Mr and Mrs T were among tens of thousands of homeowners who signed up to this type of mortgage in the 1980s. Known as a shared appreciation mortgage, no interest is charged, but instead the lender grabs a percentage of any future uplift in the value of the home when it is sold.

Indicative of Thatcher’s Britain where banks ruled everything.

Nearly took one of those mortgages out years ago, then sat down and worked out how much they could make from them!

Of course. They keep you scared and reliant.
