  1. How long does it take to complete on a house purchase? https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://thepersonalagent.co.uk/how-long-does-it-take-to-buy-a-house-uk/&ved=2ahUKEwj5nKj_govrAhUTrHEKHRMUBOEQFjAFegQIDRAV&usg=AOvVaw0jxqE6MGvhUBAfPxixUOhJ I would say 3 to 4 months for most people.from offer to completion. That means these purchases that are in the Halifax data were for offers made in April and May. Not peak viewing season. I suspect the whole process was lengthened by the lockdown. Are these most likely to be offers made pre
  2. "Now more than ever the housing industry should be looked upon as the foundation upon which to keep the UK working." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53693149
  3. I don't understand how it can cost 115 k to clad a flat. Does anyone have a breakdown of the figures
  4. I have to admit that I have never understood any explanation of the method of QE. But I thought it was generally accepted that one of the effects is to push up asset prices, including house prices. In 2009 the BOE stated that QE was a temporary measure and that the QE would be in unwound. I don't think they pretend it is temporary any more. I don't trust QE but maybe that is because I need to learn more about it. I would be interested to know why you think QE has no effect on house prices.
  5. It is impossible to know what will happen to house prices. How about 'buy one under 500k and we'll go halves' Sounds crazy now, but who knows what the QE man will be up to in 12 months time.
  6. Money laundering. You can't go wrong when the costs are verified by the team.
  7. https://www.arcouk.org/sites/default/files/Too little too late__FINAL - June 2020.pdf ' if nothing is done – is a housing market heading for 20 million ‘surplus’ bedrooms by 2040, nearly two thirds of them in homes occupied by the over-65s.. ' '“If people lived in homes more suited to their needs, 50,000 fewer homes would need to be built each year.” 'Far too few dwellings are being built that cater for older people. Retirement housing has only accounted for about 125,000, or 2%, of all new homes built since 2000, but each year around 700,000 people turn 65
  8. Is it usual to publish monthly figures? I thought they were published quarterly. Is it possible they are trying to get us less sensitive for the even worse May and 2nd quarter figures?
  9. ''One report today suggested coffee shops, restaurants and estate agents should be among the first to reopen' That would open over 50% of most high streets.
  10. The government has just placed an order for 15,000 ventilators. Apparently we are presently at or near the peak (with apprrox 10,000 ventilators). Does the government think the next peak will be worse?
