Hooper TV deal on how to pay mortgage in two years

AWD Chase de Vere marketing director Graham Hooper has lined up a book and reality TV deal with the BBC on how to pay off a mortgage in two years.

Pay Off Your Mortgage in Two Years will be published in January and will be accompanied by TV programmes broadcast over two years.

Hooper will guide eight households which will try to clear their mortgages through money-saving strategies. The book identifies the best stra-tegy to suit individuals and their mortgage and includes jargon-free advice and case studies.

Although the book does give advice, it is generic and non-specific so it escapes the attentions of the regulator.

Hooper says: “This is not just about paying off your mortgage. It is also about being able to make choices which can mean paying into a pension or taking a holiday.”
