Our tv has packed in and although the guy has said it's knackered he can fix the motherboard but it will be £150 - £200. A brand new one of the same size is only £380 so we don't know what to do for the best.
We don't even have the money to have it fixed at the moment but is it too early to ask to miss a month of our IVA? We understand if it is although we don't go out and my husband especially misses it. HE has just recently cancelled Sky which was a big deal for him. We never built up a contingency as we needed our boiler and garage roof fixing just before the IVA started totaling around £1000.
Always seems to be something...
The future's bright, the future's debt free. In 72 months to be exact!
I agree that you should ask and hopefully they will agree to it. We certainly couldn't be without a TV or Sky. We rarely go out so that is our entertainment.
