  1. Not a Sh*thole but ridiculously overpriced.... http://www.propertyfinder.com/cgi-bin/rsea...p;tm=1233356447
  2. Hideously overpriced studio in SE1....250k for 426 sq ft.... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...&radius=0.0
  3. Details below from Halifax website of the flat for sale - rounding everything down to the nearest foot, works out at at 385 square feet, which is £350 psf, representing a 35% discount. Also is unlikely to sell for asking price, I imagine at least 10% discount could be obtained, making overall psf discount fairly siginficant......Incidentally I never had any trouble with the neighbours and never had a break-in. Reception 5.43m x 4.64m 17'10" x 15'3" Bathroom 1.57m x 1.30m 5'2" x 4'3" Bedroom 3.62m x 3.07m 11'11" x 10'1"
  4. Here's the link - http://www.houseprices.co.uk/e.php?q=146+s...e+road&n=10 My flat was the basement flat, approx 430 square feet.
  5. Nice artists impression of the railway line + the newish Buxton development right in front. http://www.buxtonhomes.co.uk/SBR.htm Note in bold "ALL SOLD", then scan down to "Pricing & Sales Status; 102 of the apartments have been pre sold to The Young Group for onward sale and private rental. 62 of the units have been pre sold to Amicus Horizon for shared ownership and some fair rental." I'm curious to know at what price Buxton offloaded them and if Young Group have actually managed to sell any, probably not....wonder how many from the Elephant demolition will end up there as "fair rentals".....
  6. I wouldn't quite call it Old Kent Road - is nearer to Borough and Southwark tube than to the Elephant (speaking of which, does anyone know when it is finally going to be demolished?). Used to be an easy 15-20 minute walk to my former city-hellhole of a workplace in Blackfriars.... http://www.aboutmyplace.co.uk/showmap?id=2...mp;poi=property As for the flat on at £950k, is absolutely bonkers. Especially with the widening of the thameslink line due sometime soon if it hasn't already started.
  7. Quoted from the Halifax brochure: Tenure At the time of producing these details we are unable to confirm the tenure of this property. Confirmation has been requested. Please consult us for further information.
  8. I suspect it's very recently been put on the market, it wasn't on rightmove a couple of weeks ago and there's no price-reduction history on property snake. I agree, it seems really cheap relative to location, also not being ex-council. No idea how long the lease is, my old flat round the corner had about 100 years left when I sold up.
  9. Just seen this basement flat on Rightmove, on for £135k. To put things into perspective, I sold a similarly sized victorian basement flat / dungeon literally round the corner in January 2007 for over £238k, having bought in 2001 for £132k.....Feel genuinely sorry for the poor girl who bought it, almost 100% mortgage, worked in an investment bank. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-240...p;mam_disp=true
  10. The most coherent commentary I've heard from a politician in a long long time, he'ld have my vote. Incidentally my mum met him when he was chancellor, sounded like a very likeable down-to-earth fellow.
  11. The building is monstrous, I used to live round the corner on Leathermarket Street. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-218...p;mam_disp=true "Special attention should be drawn to the limestone flooring, under floor heating system, contemporary wet room and kitchen".....What on earth is a "contemporary wet room"? classic jargon....
  12. I went to prep school with them - never had much to to with Nick but the younger brother was an arrogant little nouveau-riche s*d even then. Hope they go bust though I doubt that it will ever happen.
