Dear Friend, Hello and welcome. Thank you for using Just Answer. Let me try and throw some light on your issues.
As I understand from your question, I understand that the 60,000 you are referring to is deposited to get them a mortgage loan, i.e. interest only mortgage loan.I too agree with you. The car loan and personal loans carry much higher rate of interest than mortgage loans and they are one of the most expensive debts. They should be addressed first, if possible.In my opinion, your accountant, i.e. your partner's accountant should have explained you this. By not doing this, I believe, he his pushing your children into MORE debt and not doing any good to them.What you need at this hour is to prioritize your debt. Pay for mortgage ONLY IF it is mandatory and required the most. OTHERWISE, the costly debts such as personal loan and car loan should be retired first.
You can certainly seek discussion on this issue with your partner before he goes and signs the papers. Mortgage loan is important, I do not deny that, but if money is available, then they should be first allocated to retire costly debts.
