Money can be a turbulent topic among family and friends, so last month we wondered how willing you would be to lend £1,000. Just 13% would say yes without hesitation, while 20% would on the condition it would be paid back. A third of those surveyed would decide based on what it was needed for, and the remaining third would refuse – 13% – because they don’t have the money to spare, and the final 20% because they don’t want to risk the friendship over the transaction.
|Would you lend £1,000 to a friend or family?||Results|
Sure, they’d do the same for me
|I would if I was sure they’d pay me back||20%|
|Depends on what they wanted it for||34%|
|I don’t have that amount spare even if I wanted to share||13%|
|Nope, I don’t want to risk tension in our friendship over repayment||20%|
The Christmas countdown has officially started, so this month we want to know what part of the festivities your money is going on. Let us know here.
