    Detached 5-bedder, offers over £499,950 Dear me, a third off. That's quite a sting if they need or have 'spent' the extra 250k in their minds. Looks like a nice place, however only 200m from the M6, so that'll be a 'no' for most people.

    Not even the whole of the first floor. Probably that house is now 6 flats. Wooden floors, it's going to be noisy.

    Street view shows it's on an 'A' road, with a bus stop immediately in front, a car park/development site opposite, and a pub <50 yards away. Beautiful.
  4. 'uncontrollable' EU immigration - 87,000 UK controlled Non-Eu immigration - 235,000 Nothing will change with regards to immigration.

    Exactly. Even students like to sit out in the sun occasionally. I can't see who wants a 4-bedder with no garden.

    Who wants to live in a car park? And what family wants to live in a car park, with no garden for the kids?

    As the crow flies, 70m from the railway, and 100m from the dual carriage way. Think of the pollution.

    Shocking traffic noise there, they'll never get a moment's peace and quiet, or be able to open the front windows. Also cars parked next to the garden. Location, location, location!

    Is electric all bad though? I wonder compared with oil CH you see out in the sticks if there is any difference once you account for the oil infrastructure (tank, pump, boiler, maintenance) versus flicking a switch. Especially with super efficient insulation used 'nowadays'. Ok, the above is a flat, so the oil comparison is not relevant in this case.
  10. I'm in Switzerland, and that is an accurate comment of the state of mind here. People with 10 years to left live, dictating how the rest of the population live. At least Europe provides some protection from the landed and upperclasses. If anyone thinks JRM and BoJo have their back, they are wrong.
  11. The HGV cost is only £100 a month, hardly worth the effort. Needs to be 3 or 4 times that.

    Reading

    I stand corrected. I looked at the CAB website, and indeed the EU migrants are not treated equally. That said they can claim (limited) benefits after only 3 months employment. But only for 3 months. Would be better only after 2 years employment. Certainly not easy and no access to unlimited/neverending claims. As for the minimum income of 30k, I think that's still too low. Better would be an Oz system where if UK needs haidressers or brain surgeons, in you come, and the UK accepts the consequences one way or another. What we don't need is chefs in ethnic restaraunts and taxi drivers. Anyway, we digress from Reading. I'm from Reading, born and bred, and on the rare occasions I visit, (been abroad in EEA for 12+ years), I despair over the ridic house prices and the fact Reading is now a mirror image of Slough, but with worse traffic issues. It's not a bad place to live though, and you are almost gauranteed to have some form of employment.

    What benefit changes are these? I'm absorbing as much Brexit as I can, but cannot remember a single mention of benefits in relation to EU migrants. My 'understanding' is we treat anyone legally resident in the UK as an equal to a UK citizen when it comes to benefits. It's not policy to have a two tier system.

    25% down from initial asking. Agent now saying "REALISTICALLY PRICED opportunity – all interest and OFFERS are INVITED." Lovely. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-64458679.html
