  2. Thanks for the reply apolgise for the delay in answering,had my internet cut off. I've decided to take another property with another agent,was not confident with this one as he was changing the rules all the time. My issue with the gas was that at my last property i only used a quarter tank in 6 months,out of the country for half the year that's why i would not agree to paying extra per month.The landlord took a reading at the start and end of the period and billed me for my useage out of the deposit.Found this to be fair. It concerned me to fill the tank up as i wasn't confident on getting some refund if i left the property after 6 months. I don't agree with the gardening as i'm only renting the house but would have no problem with doing the upkeep if they provided the tools. Regds Dodohouse
  3. First of all like to say many thanks for the advice on here,especially the haggling on the rent. I'm switching properties middle of next month and looking to rent a new place for 6 months I went to see a house yesterday,the asking price was 500pm i managed to haggle it down to 400pm,before i went to see the house. Anyway when i got there met the agent and LL they told me that the Gas tank was nearly empty and that i would have to pay 500pm in rent to cover the cost of filling it up. I said that i couldn't agree to that because i would never use that much in the period i was going to be there. They said that i could fill it up and they would reemburse me when i left,i'm a bit worried about this especially when he said that the minimum order is 1000 litres with British Gas. So what are my options here? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also when he said that i would be responsible for the garden i told him that i had no tools,he didn't like that very much. He then said that i could borroww a strimmer off him. lol So i'm going to take pictures of the whole house and garden if i move in. When i questioned him about protecting the deposit he was vary vague on this,i asked him where he would have it protected. Question is is he required by law now to have it put into a third party holding? Many thanks in advance for any advice regarding these 2 questions. Regds Dodohouse

  8. The current global financial slowdown could "drag on for some considerable time", the Bank of England's new deputy governor has warned. Charles Bean said the downturn was at least as bad as in the 1970s and that every time the markets began to look better, "another grenade" exploded. But he said growth should pick up and inflation fall next year, if oil prices and credit markets stabilised. Mr Bean described the crisis as a "transitory period" that would pass. The deputy governor, who was speaking at the annual conference of the world's top central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, said those at last year's event believed the crisis would have been over by Christmas 2007. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7580388.stm The UK is Living on hope,i feel hope is over and fear has taken over.

  10. Special MoneyWeek report August 2008 How to protect your wealth and prosper in... BANKRUPT BRITAIN The UK is potentially about to be battered by the biggest financial storm of our lifetimes. If you want to make sure you survive it, you've simply got to act NOW. In this urgent MoneyWeek report we will reveal 4 'protect & profit' investments that could make you impressive returns even as the markets plummet. Fellow ADVFN user, You've every right to be furious right now... The financial industry has let you down. So has the government. Greedy financiers created the subprime time-bomb that exploded in the US last year. Weak politicians on either side of the Atlantic have allowed the crisis to spiral out of control. Already the subprime mortgage losses have created a $200 billion fiasco that has brought down Bear Stearns and Northern Rock, sent the FTSE back 10 years and created an unprecedented worldwide credit crunch. But for us in the UK, the worst is certainly still to come. So far the damage has been limited. It's been harder to get a mortgage. Mortgage payments and credit card bills have gone up. Investments have yo-yoed. Even so, most of us have still got our houses, our savings and the same standards of living. But if you fail to make the right decisions right NOW, that could be all about to change... We won't get into the complex economic background in this report. But we will tell what is likely to happen in the weeks and months ahead. We'll show you which investments are going to devastate the finances of unwary investors. We'll reveal the truth about Bankrupt Britain. And best of all, we'll provide you with a comprehensive 'safe haven' strategy for beating what many of the world's foremost financial figures - including Alan Greenspan, Paul Volcker and George Soros - are calling the biggest crisis of our lifetimes Link:http://www.fsponline-recommends.co.uk/page.aspx?u=mwkbbext&tc=EMWKD811&PromotionID=2147065619&
