A couple of weeks from now our government will present the plans for 2014. We know they’ll cut the budget with 6 billion. My husband and myself already know that we’re going to get screwed somehow. But let’s keep things positive. They also think the total amount of outstanding mortgage debt is way too high and they’re thinking of plans to make people pay things off. No, not the logical way. That would be too easy. They will allow parents to give their kids up to €100.000 tax free in order to pay off part of their mortgage or in order to rebuild part of their homes.
If, theoretically, either of our parents would want to donate that amount of money to us…it would be useless. I have tried to explain it before and I’ll mention it again: we’re stuck with a weird type of mortgage that only allows you to pay off things within a certain bandwidth. So even if they would be willing to give us the money (which I would find a totally ridiculous thing for them to do, we can take care of ourselves thank you very much but how do say that nicely?) we wouldn’t be able to pay off a huge chunk of our house with it.
Now, I am hoping that they’ll get rid of these ridiculous tax rules that come with our type of mortgage. If they’ll do that, you know what we’re going to do…right?!
Oh……I am wishing away here! If only…. Well, we’ll know in three weeks.
