    My wife bought it for me.

    Bit of pain to use for LOC loans which is where the best advantages are, so they say. I managed to identify around $50 over a year on 1 loan.

    havent sent the letter yet

    I was told using Excel is just as good, and the spiel for the Mortgage Watchdog program is pretty much sales sensationalism type stuff. The thing with buying a program is it might force you to sit down and look at it, whereas it takes some motivation to start analysing the details on bank statements and plugging it into Excel. :)

    testing mortgage watchdog

    hi all, we are currently testing mortgage watchdog now on a number of loans and all going well, will offer a free service to anyone whose loan we check which does not reveal any errors.... early days yet, but if this is of interest to you, pls email us our details and we can send you more details of the process. this all saves you buying and learning the software, and you can only get money back in your pocket, or the re-assuring confirmation that your loan is correct. kindest :: devi (biz consultant / coach / investor / ethical biz babe.:)

    If you have a look on the SS site there should be an excel spreadsheet for this in one of the sticky threads.

    If you go to the somersoft forum they have a section there for spreadsheets that members have posted.

    From memory there is an excel spread sheet which will calculate your interest owed for the month.

    Sorry thats if you were asking me Soulbiz?

    This site looks exactly the same as the one that deceived me into buying the program. As a matter of fact there is a lot of sites similar to this one and I think they are a type of franchise so just be careful. See other post on this forum for other comments on Mortgage Watchdog.
