Would you lend £1,000 to a friend or family?

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.
