  1. Really need the media to hit this hard. Ultimately it’s sentiment that’s so important. Only when estate agents, buyers and sellers are all bricking it (mortar everywhere) will quality reductions start happening.
  2. Need to charge it on selling as well as, or instead of, buying. It’s an alternative to inheritance tax.
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-52868241 Worth putting in a cheeky 5% below asking...?
  4. Okay with 2500 pcm (80%) initially, but the tapering down should have been much quicker. Giving companies and employees headroom to strategise and plan, then adjust expectations and retrain, etc.
  5. Needs to happen, and companies need to flush out zombie jobs. This is probably a good way to do it.
  6. It’s amazing! Some of these old timers are prolific posters. I’ve been on here for 12 years, and I can’t seem to rack up more than 1000 posts. though in those early days I was sh1t scared of posting. It was a bit nasty at times back then.
  7. I was wondering the effect of the Coronavirus on how many pensions would be drawn. So far, I think it’s killed about 0.4% of all 70+ year olds. So not all that many. But I wonder if it will have shortened the lives of other who have had it.
  8. I am in the same situation. I have written the ‘bailing out from the deal’ email and am hovering over sending.
  9. But don’t forget the punitive extra stamp duty for then purchasing a second home.
  10. Absolutely not. We will be subtle and circumspect about our gloating.
  11. “He and his wife are looking to buy an investment property in Hastings.” Seriously? Is now the time?
  12. Let’s hope so. Problem is, I had one done in mid March and they refused to give a value (RICS told them not to). Unless they start to give valuations, the price information isn’t being properly shared and it will slow down the price discovery. What we all need is something official to point to so as to be able to say “look, prices are falling”. Once they start going they will snowball. ⛄️
  13. https://www.cityam.com/government-urged-to-help-property-market-recover-amid-uk-house-price-slump/ AKA don’t let price discovery happen in the housing “market”.
