  1. You can ask your landlord for a longer agreement i.e 5 years why don't you? I am a landlord and would gladly accept.
  2. Know your rights. If boiler is broken and landlord does not fix: 1) get 3 quotes to fix. 2) pick middle one. 3) Get fixed and reduce money from rent You can do this legally.
  3. I think if we introduced the following rule it would give everyone piece of mind and let them get on with there lives, without worrying about house prices. If you are 30 and earn less than £40k you cannot afford to buy and should spend your life renting, Unless you have already bought Just to make it clear if you earn £39k at age 30 and £40k at 31 you should NOT buy. Now when you hit 30 and you know you will never buy you can plan around this. Try and get renting contracts fixed for 2 years to keep your moving / agent costs down. We need to get away from the mantality that everyone has the right to buy. NO they don't only people who can afford to meet the cost should buy. Look at all the benifits ranting provides i.e never having to worry about the boiler repair bill. What do people think?
  4. TBH i would be lieing if I said I did not like the feel of power owning property gives me I know I'm sad
  5. Computer Programmer C++/Java I love programming just hate all the ******** around it. Pays well esp in London.
  6. Theres some good advice there. I'm going to be 30 this year and I hope that by the time I'm 50 I can give up the 9 to 5 have someone else manage my properties and just enjoy life. My other thought is that one day I will have kids hopefully and I don't want them to have to work as hard as I have to. So once I'm gone my property can help support them.
  7. Man I wish I could keep out of all markets. I always worry I might miss out.
  8. It can be disheartning when a market does not go the way you want it to or expect it! I know how that feel
  9. Around March last year alot of the long term bears (I think also including this site administrater(could be wrong)) bought properties. They created threads basically saying that they had bought but still thought properties were going to fall. They manage to pick the bottom of the market and have probably made quite abit of money (on paper). I should have taken this as a massive buy sign and increased the size of my portfolio. I also should have listen to the people on this site 3 years ago telling me to buy gold. What about the rest of you?
  10. Quick q how far are we from 2007 peak prices? Have we passed them yet?
  11. "Never ever ever sell property!" You're no bull, you're a whimp!

  12. Yea but you will stay there for many years not be forced to move along after 6-12 months! Plus you can make it a home something renters can't do!!
