  1. I highly recomend this book: The Aquariums of Pyongyang It is currently on offer for the kindle The Aquariums of Pyongyang
  2. This wreck sold for £134,000 in 2009 with no work done to it, they expect 160 - 170 at the next cheffins auction - who would be mad enough to buy this http://www.cheffins.co.uk/lot/thatch-dock-lane-horningsea-cambridge-cb25-9jf-490279-propertyauctions-0 http://www.nethouseprices.com/index.php?con=sold_prices_street_detail&street=DOCK+LANE&locality=HORNINGSEA&town=CAMBRIDGE&cCode=EW&year=All&house_style=All&house_age=All&search_radius=15&outcode=CB25&incode=9JF&eastingToSearch=54920&northingToSearch=26270
  3. Only 23 posts to reach Godwin's Law, that's a fast one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_law
  4. I reckon this is the bargain of the week that was in the Guardian article http://www.haart.co.uk/buying-house/Mapsea...ails_77206.aspx Maybe I am too choosey, but it doesn't seem that great a deal
  5. Tenure The property is held on a lease which expires in 2044 (36 years remaining). Current charges are £71.00 per month which includes upkeep of the common areas, external maintenance, caretaking, buildings insurance and ground rent. External decorations are due to be carried out in 2009 which is expected to cost each flat owner a sum of £395.00. The £850 they charge each each year for maintenance is not enought to cover External decorations, the greedy sh1ts !!! We understand that a lease of a similar term in the same block has been extended by a further 90 years, within the past year at a cost approaching £60,000. Please note that it is highly unlikely that a mortgage would be granted for a property with a remaining lease of 36 years. However, we feel that this is an excellent opportunity for a cash investor. So with a reasonable leasehold, which would make this property mortgageable you are looking at over £200,000, never in a month of Sundays is this a fair valuation
  6. This was on the market at offers over £150000, now £100000, I think it last sold for £87000 in 2000 http://www.haart.co.uk/buying-house/Mapsea...ails_64808.aspx Is Willingham a good place to live ?

  8. Maybe they want to remake her 1968 film - as seen on HIGNFY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP5FhIEevGA
  9. Some feedback from the Cheffins Aution........ 6 Springflied was sold prior to auction for £210,000 It had a guide price of £180,000 - £200,000 Great Location, but very small, here in Liverpool it would have sold for less than £80,000 I thought is odd that in the current climate that a house would sell for above guide price ----- are the streets of Cambridge really paved with gold.....? Merry Christmas to everyone on the Cambridge forum Stewart
  10. Here is a property that has dropped; first listed with Pocock at £290000 on 1 Feb 2008, now going to auction for £180000 - £200000 http://www.cheffins.co.uk/cheffins-propert...-cambridge-6488
  11. Cheffins held their property auction yesterday. Did anyone attend able to give feedback ?
  12. They have gone back up again, Cromwell Road was £650 now £825.................. :angry:
  13. Thanks tbatst2000 & Orange Boy for you help, I had the email link waiting for me this morning. This property would be handy for Addenbrookes TG have it at £172,000 http://tgresidential.com/Buy/Details.aspx?id=S12827 The auction price is £140,000 http://www.cheffins.co.uk/lot/81-foster-ro...pertyauctions-1 Any thoughts on the value of this property PS I currently live in the green & Sunny south of Liverpool, life is quite civilised there. Stewart
  14. Hi, Just wanted to start off saying that I find this thread very informative, we are hoping to move to cambridge from Liverpool as my wife has just got a job at addenbrookes. My first question is:- Has cheffins published their catalogue for the October auction. Number 2 is: - I have found this property on the eigroup site, is there a free way of finding when & where the auction will take place (unable to post a link, but the discription is: Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB1 Freehold Terrace House Two Floor Four Room(s) Garden Parking Space Vacant ) Thanks in advance Stewart
