Structured Settlements?

Ok so since nobody will know basically I'm starting university soon so I'm renting a house with my student loan along with 6 others but I'm looking for something to invest in since I get paid in big lump sums. Been searching around thinking of doing something with property since it has such a high return, came across things called structured settlements...

I tried wikipedia on the structured settlements page to understand it but it sounds as though its basically a payoff for when you sue someone for a personal injury claim? Does anyone know what they are though? I don't think it has anything to do with housing but still I'd like to know what it means if anybody knows or can explain very simply. Thank you.

  7. I know it has something to do with you paying more because it's over time. Also I'm your 100th subscriber!

  12. This is England to make payments towards a house for only 6 years would be incredibly expensive. I know it eats through money but its just how university works here in the UK. Thanks though. Cheers for the support everyone.

  13. I think it's only in the US that you can actually afford a house as a student or recently graduated person. All over Europe most people rent all their lives I guess.
