Why did David and Samantha Cameron sign mortgage for their £3.5m London home this month?


Cameron set to quit in October

Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife signed a home loan agreement for their Notting Hill mansion on 15 June, it has been reported.

The news comes as Cameron resigned amid Britain voting for Brexit.

The new mortgage agreement has fuelled rumours that Cameron was planning to step down before the referendum result.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “People often change mortgages. It’s a common practice. We didn’t know what the referendum result would be.”

Cameron is set to leave No 10 in October after Britain gets a new PM.
