  1. Do they make non flamable acrylic? It would be a shame if the pool had to be demolished to meet fire regulations.
  2. https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/pm-statement-in-downing-street-27-april-2020 "because that would mean not only a new wave of death and disease but also an economic disaster" https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 It's difficult to say Boris Johnson is wrong on this prediction. At the time I was surprised he said it since it seemed obvious that there would be a second wave. Look at the history of pandemics. The second wave usually dwarfs the first wave. There are now more deaths in this second wave than the first. However, there a
  3. Who would employ them? I say double their salary and halve the number of MPs. I do like the idea of randomly selecting our MPs. It couldn't be any more of a farce Perhaps they could be forced to remain anonymous during their term so that at the end of 5 years they go away. I still have to listen to Tony Blair preaching to me every couple of months about his latest area of expertise.
  4. 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
  5. "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
  6. I don't understand how it can cost 115 k to clad a flat. Does anyone have a breakdown of the figures
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Money laundering. You can't go wrong when the costs are verified by the team.
  10. 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
