What proportion of your income is spent on your mortgage/rent?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

Take what you pay on your mortgage or rent (include any service charges, ground rent, but NOT council tax, insurance or other bills) and work out roughly what percentage of your monthly take-home pay/income (include benefits) it is.

If you have joint finances that are intertwined then give your costs as a proportion of household income.

Please answer in the correct category.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
