David and Samantha Cameron took out new mortgage eight days before EU referendum
David and Samantha Cameron took out a new mortgage on their London home just eight days before the EU referendum.
It has been reported that the couple signed a home loan arrangement with HSBC for their £3.5million Notting Hill townhouse in West London on June 15.
The revelation calls into question whether the Prime Minister was planning his exit from Downing Street before the referendum results were announced on Friday.

The Daily Mail have learnt a mortgage was taken out on the same day as George Osborne’s emergency ‘Brexit Budget’ announcement, in which he warned taxes may rise if voters chose to sever ties with Brussels.
The couple each signed the HSBC mortgage deed using their full names, according to publicly-available Land Registry records.
Their signatures were witnessed by Laurence Mann, who gave his occupation as ‘Political Secretary to the Prime Minister, 10 Downing Street’.

Last night a Downing Street spokesman said: “People often change mortgages. It’s a common practice. We didn’t know what the referendum result would be.”
Mr Cameron and his family will leave No 10 in October after a successor is chosen by the Party.
On Friday he announced his resignation following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.
In a speech given outside Downing Street this morning, he explained he would step down by October to ensure the country has a “strong, determined and committed leadership”.
