A larger house means bigger bills for everything. What amount of you income are they allowed to live on, isn’t there limits. Heading into old age just getting that lawn cut is going to be costly. And it looks like they’ll have no private pensions either, I do not believe a word of it that they will be working full tilt well into their seventies.It's clear that they didn't. But the house was already 5000 sq ft. They were refused permission to increase it to 8,000 sq ft.
