I moved out of the FMH at my S2BX''s insistance almost a year ago now. Lived with a relative and have now moved into a property i have been renovating for 2 years. I own 50% with my relative owning the other 50%.
It is pretty stark... little furniture, no tv, no insulation as yet, no doors as yet internally. My daughter is 17 and i obviously want it ok for her to stay over.
I dont know own a car as both are registered in her name.
So.. in addition to a car to the same value as hers, I would need..
Decoration / doors fitted / insulation fitted / An oven and hob/ a tv / flooring and carpets / curtains / general household decor.
is this warrented to go onto the form?
in addition how anbout luxuries to match those still in the FMH? Hifi / laptop / kitchen utensils / dish washer?
Not sure how far to go within the reasonable remit?
Its not capital wants, its reasonable needs, so you list things you need as a one off cost, a home a car, that stuff, your first need is a home, and all that goes with a home, doors are a requirement and so is a telly, tot it all up to a single number.
Selecting a figure - could you not look up how much a similar sized house goes for? Contents - what figure were your contents insured for when you lived in the former marital home? This will give you some quick figures to work with. Although, I never put contents on my form E, just house and car.
