  1. I so wished I had seen this last night. My partner is currently in debt due to CSA payments which he has been forced to pay regardless of how much personal debt he is in. I wrote some letters on his behalf to his creditors, namely Natwest and advised them of his situation and asked for his loan to be restructured to make lower payments over a longer period (as advised by CAB). He had a phone call back from Natwest who advised him that they could lower his payments to just under what he requested but that was without PPI and they were not prepared to do that as that means they would loan out
  2. Has anybody got the actual Daily Express story that they can post on here please? Been on the website and you can click all the other headlines except the one major one plastered across the front page. Cheers
  3. Seriously guys, why are you on here if you earn that much? How can you really be worried about price crashes when it looks like your set up pretty nicely. Think about us poor folk who really ARE stretched to buy anything. I won't even lower myself to put on here how much I earn and how much I have in savings. I really do need a price crash, but I don't think you guys really do. Sorry.
  4. In my opinion, builders should be made to build 2 bedroomed starter homes for people instead of these bloody 3 and 4 bedroom detached houses that are being built everywhere. They should combine 2 bed semi's or a small terraces amongst these 'executive' type homes. That's my idea of affordable housing. You don't see any 2 bed newbuilds anywhere unless you want to discount 2 bed luxury apartments, which of course are way overpricd.
  5. I am immensley disappointed to hear the MPC decision to hold rates yet again. However, I truly believe that what they are doing is waiting for the gullible sheep to go credit card crazy over the next few months, which they will undoubtedly do in order to buy that 'in thing' for their kids this Christmas, then the MPC will whack up the interest rates in January as a slap in the face 'we warned you' kinda thing. Just by going to the local malls over the last weekend (to buy baby stuff I'd like to point out, not to go credit card crazy myself) I was amazed to see how many people were out alread
  6. Hi - forgot to mention that my step-dad serves in the US airforce and my mum of course is an illegal alien and has to reapply for her green card. However she is going to sit the citizenship test to get dual nationality. My parents have been back in the UK for the past 4 years as my dad had a posting here. They sold their house to move over here and of course needed to buy another one for when they go back for good in June 2005. Therefore their house isn't a holiday home, they are going back to the US for good after deciding the UK was not for them to settle into retirement and to be honest

Now my mum is a true brit, but after spending 5 years here she can see just how bad the UK has become. She is right, it's not just a very expensive place to live w
  8. Maybe so, but you cannot help but envy the houses, the acreage and the lifestyle most US citizens have over us Brits. The UK is a flea infested, immigrant invasive, chips on shoulders, gotta have better than my neighbours attitude, nasty nasty vile place to live and I hate it here. I am a true Brit but I am embarassed by what the UK has become.
  9. I really think now that there is going to be no crash.. I've looked up on the websites recently and the house prices are still sky high. I scarily looked up Portsmouth where I used to live and a 1 bedroomed flat in a coverted house is going for £114k. This is just ridiculous, but yet I can still see no evidence of a crash anymore. These prices are going to stick for a long time to come. Whats more disheartning is that my parents have recently returned from the US and have purchased a 3 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed ranch house in Kentucky, with two and a half car sized garage with remote up a
  10. Hi, I live in Crewe, Cheshire for my sins and although I have not been studying the market on a whole, I have been witnessing how many For Sale, Sold and To Let boards there are. We are definately seeing more For Sale with very little turning to Sold. A few have been sold but reverted back to For Sale. There are currently four houses in one terrace (3 next to one another) all up for sale and have been stagnating now for at least 4 months, but try to bull style, they aren't giving up and not reducing the prices. Definately not many sold boards about and hardly any To Let. THe landlords up
