  1. If this was ever brought in, which I seriously doubt, I would be non-PAYE by the end of the week. Will never happen. Probably just some fool at the HMRC sent a doc to some bag carrier in Westminster then 'briefed' a journo that 'ministers' are considering it.
  2. Hollingdean is a very generous description of walking distance But I missed the two in Hanover that are on for 200k, as I never check the SSTC ones. Interesting, things are moving in the right direction.
  3. That might just work, and I mean might, if you had a big lump of cash which you intend to tie up over say 10-15 years. Anyway thats the lowest sale price for a house within walking distance of Brighton & Preston stations for years. Even if you're generous with your definition of walking distance. I've notice that there is a bit of a psychological barrier at the 210-230k level for small terraces. Looking forward to the first to be marketed under 200k.
  4. I can't quite be sure, cos I forgot to note the lot number, but looking here at lot 101, it looks like this went for 162k.
  5. Pointless quango, duplicating work done by others and judging by the lack of comments to this thread not that much interest in them. Abolish.
  6. From the Halifax Report So prices fell 1.9% in the busiest quarter of the year. Oh dear. Halifax Report
  7. I agree the place looks a state, the location is crap and there might be horrors awaiting any buyer foolish enough not to get a structural survey first, but... If that property goes for say, under 120-140k, or less, it will send shivers down the Brighton market. Property prices are all relative, no matter how crap the location, condition, etc.
  8. When are they due to be published? I would guess a positive number as Halifax has lagged Nationwide on the spring bounce thing.
  9. This is interesting. A 2 bed terrace to be auctioned at a guide price of 80k. Had a look on Zoopla and it doesn't seem to have changed hands since they started doing the electronic records. 80k Terrace
  10. Do MPs have to timesheet their rounds of golf? Long lunches? Political canvassing? Time spent acting for the Crown as Ministers or Privy Counsellors? Writing books and articles? Writing books and articles unpaid? Going on overseas junkets? etc etc.
  11. That's because they can't answer. Let's say you're a married couple with two kids, live in the South East and have combined earnings of 40-50k (which includes any goodies from Gordon). This is the average 2.4 family that makes a large portion of the demographic. Now what can you get, if you have sensible multiples and a deposit: somewhere between 130k and 170k. Now go to a property listings site and see where your 130k-170k will get you. Where I live you'll be lucky to get a 2 bed flat and will probably have to settle for a 1 bed flat. You will struggle to get a 2 up, 2 down terrace anywhere in the South East. There is only one way for prices to go, just have to be patient as we are not dealing with efficient financial markets.
