    Update on Self Build Register

    I assume that no-one on the list has been offered land yet by the council as until recently the self-build register was only there to gauge interest and there was no legal requirement for the council to actually do anything with it other than maintain one.
  4. A year ago I registered myself onto my council's self-build and custom housebuilding register. At the time it was free to join and just required contact details. I checked recently and there were less than 40 names on the register. I received an email from them and they want me to provide evidence of a local connection and financial resources along with an application fee of £300. However there was this rather interesting part of their email: If they are actually going to sell me a plot of land with PP then it may be worth a punt.

    Government to water down BTL tax?

    But he referred to the budget, which surely means something related to taxation or spending.
  6. Sajid Javid at the Conservative conference 13:10 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bX-muPl57EA "At the autumn budget, we will bring forward incentives, new incentives for landlords who are doing the right thing" Sounds like there is going to be some tax incentives for landlords who offer longer tenancies or join licencing schemes.

    London, the property safe haven

    What power does an individual opposition member of Parliament have to affect house prices in his or her constituency?
  8. The Mayor of London does not have the power to introduce such a tax.

    Prime Minister's Questions

    The first part of her statement makes no sense. How does housing benefit help people get into their own homes? Anyhow, so much for the Tories being the party of home ownership. With an attitude like that I wonder if May will reverse the planned tax rises for Landlords. Does she think a nation of renters will vote for her party, or the party that offers rent control, stronger tenancy rights etc,

    Ftb - Mid 30S. Should I Buy?

    If the country votes remain then personally I would pull the trigger and buy. Nobody has a crystal ball. You could be waiting forever for a crash that never comes. Every year that goes by while prices rise 10% is another 10% that they have to fall in the crash to make waiting worthwhile, plus in the meantime you are paying off someone else's mortgage instead of your own. Look at it this way, if you buy now then you can pay off the mortgage and build up some equity and then maybe you can buy someplace nicer in a few years.

    This Farm Could Be Yours....for £1/year

    So you get to live on a farm for a nominal rent, in exchange for having to work the land. So basically they are looking for a serf.

    Net Migration To The Uk Was 323,000

    Whoever his successor is will sign us up to freedom of movement, just like Norway and the Swiss.

    Net Migration To The Uk Was 323,000

    Voting to leave the EU won't make any difference to immigration because even if we leave the EU I guarantee that the Tories will sign us up to EU freedom of movement in whatever deal they negotiate post brexit in order to keep free trade with the EU.
