  1. It's turning out be more contagious and deadly than the original swine flu!
  2. Cruel, but very funny. ! The OP will never be able to sleep again! Even new builds have to be capable of supporting a bathtub full of water with a big chap in it (which would give a similar loading).
  3. I realise I also ignored the fish, though I fink they shouldn't tip the scales too much...
  4. It equates to 2000kg per 4sqm ie 500kg per sqm. Compare to a woman in 1sq cm stilettos weighing 60kg, equating to 30kg per 0.0001sqm or 300000kg psqm. If the saddo upstairs has been lucky enough to have a woman there and she hasn't fallen through, you'll probably be ok. Ok, I am ignoring the pressure on the joists and someone with a calculator will check the number of zeroes above soon, but you get the idea.
  5. Another couple suffering from construction blindness that should have had a decent survey done.
  6. If the traveller site goes ahead it will seriously depress house prices locally. Many people will simply never consider living within 1/4 mile of a camp for fear of thieving, hygiene and noise problems. The fact there a camp is being planned nearby should already be depressing the value of the house. Does the current price reflect this? From what you have written it doesn't appear so, so a 90% offer on the asking ought to get some traction. It seems to me you are thinking of gambling over half a million pounds on the expectation that the traveller camp doesn't get agreed. However, you should be aware that travellers have been known to move in anyway and set up camp. Because councils have been slow to comply with the requirement to provide sufficient sites, it becomes far more difficult to evict and the decision over which site to select becomes made for them. Also if the travellers buy the land first it becomes near impossible to evict. I wouldn't do it, but it's your gamble. Good luck whatever you decide.
  7. Street View gives a lot of help in finding house numbers. First one is no. 31, last one no. 29. CBA to check the others sorry.
  8. Did it give a lofty response? I'll get me coat.
  9. Actually the June figure was later revised to -0.5%, according to Forex. I'm guessing -1.0%.
  10. Property Bee also has a Sidebar feature which lists the history of all the properties you've viewed. If you know a property used to be listed, you can scan through and find the old advert and compare to the new one.
  11. Even the BBC is reporting it, with a link from the front page no less.
  12. Well we have the latest Nationwide figures out tomorrow, probably the first negative HPI from them, so that should be interesting.
