    Foxtons Valuation

    Even if you can't persuade HMRC that it is your home , you will pay no CGT anyway. You say you bought for £298,500 in 2005 .You can add purchase costs onto this eg the survey fee , stamp duty (3% ?), Solicitors costs etc so say another £10k making a base cost of £308,500. If you sell for £320,000 then you can deduct selling fees eg Foxtons fee (2% + VAT ?) Solicitors fees etc so say £8.5k meaning a net sale price of £311,500. Your gain is £311,500 - £308,500 = £3k. Your annual CGT exemption is £10k so no tax to pay. Simples

    Fight Over Portsmouth Land Registry Job Cuts

    Prices do seem to be in some areas but the killer for the Land Registry is that transaction volumes are down over 40% yoy. Less people are needed and it then makes sense to merge regional offices to save fixed overheads.

    Sell To Rent Fund

    I agree - I smell a lot of bullsh!t in the air. Not many posters on this thread gloating about their financial brilliance either which speaks for itself.

    Election May 6Th

    I was watching the Scunthorpe v Man City game this afternoon and in 1 advert break there were 3 state sponsored adverts promoting the Labour Party 1. The youguv ad 2. The drive 5 miles less per week ad 3. The crime advert displaying household goods for burglars How much did that cost I wonder ? It makes me very angry to see this blatant Party politics by the labour government :angry::angry:

    Northern Rock

    Not strictly true.This page explains that the guarantee is still in force and any change is subject to 3 months notice (unless you have a fixed term account) so plenty of time to remove savings down to the £50k limit. http://www.northernr...ings_customers/
