I suppose it all depends at what point it kicks in, but this mansion tax proposal is worrying me. My late husband and I bought a cottage in the 1970s and because it is in Surrey it is now worth around 2 million pounds.
I haven't stopped working yet but I don't have a pension (I always worked freelance). Everything I have is tied up in this house and I am worried that I may have to sell it and move out of the area (where, though?) if the mansion tax comes in - because although my income is around the national average, my cottage may be considered a mansion! Is there anybody else out there worried about this?
