Fire damage in South Somerset

Loan Scheme:Home Improvement Loan

Location:Castle Cary

Partner:South Somerset District Council

Having lived in her family home for 40 years, Mrs C from Somerset, her partner, children and huge family of rescued pets only knew that house to call home.

Mrs C arrived home one day to her house ablaze and firefighters on the scene. The entire house and contents were ruined; the walls were down to the brick, toilets were melted, and all electrics, gas and plumbing were wrecked. The family of four (plus six dogs) were devastated and had to move in with her mother in a one-bedroom bungalow.

With no house insurance and unable to borrow from a bank, the family didn’t know where to turn. They contacted their local council who put them in touch with Lendology. Mrs C said “I never thought I’d be able to have this help, my adviser Martine was so amazing and supportive, always helping me to see the positive. They are not the same as a bank, my head was so full of stress and Martine helped me to stay calm throughout”.

After four months away from their home, enough repairs had been made for the family to move back in.

“We are so relieved to have our home back, the months away were tough on all of us and we can now rebuild our lives. The children are so glad to be home with their pets. Without this help, we would have lost everything.”
