  1. To the original poster, if you know the address, look up how much was paid by the current owner.
  2. For those still interested in this cap, there's an "explanatory memorandum" from the dep of work and pensions available here http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=145609&st=255 Looks like there is some £15 excess that has been paid in the past and will now be removed, this alone is expected to save around £500m a year in 2013. What a disgraceful waste of taxpayers money...
  3. All you can say to that is... BRILLIANT!!! Let em sod off to Wales or some place where houses are cheap and there's a need for cheap workers.
  4. from an FT article Benefit cuts risk to London households By Jim Pickard, Political Correspondent Published: September 21 2010 23:24 | Last updated: September 21 2010 23:24 Up to 82,000 households in London are at risk of losing their homes as a result of the government’s imminent cuts to housing benefit, according to analysis by a group representing the capital’s 33 local authorities. A survey of hundreds of landlords by London councils, seen by the Financial Times, suggests that few will cut their rent for those tenants who can no longer afford to pay.

  7. So according to the Guardian, the Department of Works and Pensions have carried out an impact assessment of the HB Cap and expect 100,000 homes to be affected. Presumably the majority of these households will be in Greater London, as it difficult to imagine £400 a week not being able to house a family in considerable luxury outside of the capital. The largest impact is expected to come in October 2011, when HB is to be determined by the lowest 30% range of basket of rents in the local area. So, HB renters have over 1 year to sort themselves out. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/davehillb
  8. Dragging up this post from an old thread... That same property is STILL for sale and epitomises the Spanish property market. Three years on it still hasnt sold and has been reduced by a mere 10k euros. The Spanish just dont know about dropping prices to sell, its not a concept that they are familiar with and i think it also shows that there really is very little labour mobility in Spain. Or, perhaps this is actually owned by the bank...
