Report You must go back to the office - Sunak says in House prices and the economy Posted March 27 7 hours ago, VancouverGuy said: Expect a few common themes in the media over the next couple of years, later this year it will be: "We moved to nowhere-on-the-Wold during lockdown, now my husband's boss wants him back in Canary Wharf - can they force him?". Of course they can't force him back - but they can stop paying him if he refuses, and hire someone else who actually shows up. No severance for job-desertion. 2022 and 2023 will be: "We bought a cottage in Cornwall during lockdown, now we can't sell it, husband is tired of the weekly-commute to his rented flat in Peckham We paid £800k but haven't had any offers. Why won't it sell? Help!". The nearest comparable sale will be £500k. ^ this.
