Report Looks Like Nr Are Going To Collapse.... in House prices and the economy Posted September 21, 2007 yes, like we have said, it's good to see that you have seen the light & he has now sold. See what you can learn if you listen. so I assume you have changed your mind regarding the housing market stagnating then ? or is it different this time. ps - has the money gone into the bank yet...? if so, make sure he doesn't put it into a Northern Rock account won't you. Get someone to help you if you don't understand all this banking stuff. Err, it's because he believes there will be stagnation that he hasn't traded up yet. (You may need to get someone to explain the logic behind this.) If you mean, why didn't he keep the other house and rent it out, sorry, we're bot against BTL, on principle. Of course his money's in NR. It's in my wife's account (low rate tax). As an existing account holder, it's guaranteed beyond the 35k limit. I've transferred a lot of my own money into it too. I worry about you sometimes , GOM. This stuff isn't difficult to follow.
