  1. Where in my comment did I mention any political party? Stop using stupid non-sequiturs and straw-men arguments.
  2. I can't understand why the right to buy houses were sold without some sort of covenant banning anyone from renting them out so as to ensure that they remain in the hands of owner occupiers.
  3. This one occasionally pops up on listicles. The caption reads. "Do I have permission to go to the toilet?" in Irish.

    Do any of these work on ASPC? I know you can check the published home report for the date and value of the surveyor's valuation or if you get the emails, check back through previous asking prices. There doesn't appear to be anything automated though.

    That was August above. I haven't done one of these in a while so here are some numbers I have compiled from Rightmove: September 2018: 331 October 2018: 348 November 2018: 316 https://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-prices/detail.html?locationIdentifier=REGION^4&searchLocation=Aberdeen 5556 properties currently for sale on ASPC and 689 for rent. 985 places to rent on Citylets Will we see these numbers increase in 2019? Plenty of new build housing being constructed and the AWPR will be starting to allow commuters to stay further out which would affect the cost of city housing. Various reports from Registers of Scotland, ASPC, Citylets etc. should be appearing shortly too.

    Perfect for Harry Potter fans, if JK Rowling is looking for an Aberdeen bolt-hole though, she'd have been in touch before now.

    That's the type of house a relative of mine has, tall and narrow and quite impractical for families with young children because of all the staircases. A lot of the internal area is wasted on the stairwell and landings. Not much room for a dining/kids homework table either. But due to its smaller footprint than an equivalent two storey house the developer can squeeze a few more units into a development. Plus it's in the catchment area for Harlaw Academy and not Cults which is the other side of Pitfodels Station Road. No offence meant to anyone who went to Harlaw but stuff like this is probably a consideration for someone spending such an amount on a family home.

    400% Council Tax Hike Proposed

    How about taking away/reducing the single person discount from higher band properties?
  9. One that I sparred with recently assured me that the landlord would just move family members into the vacant properties instead of selling. They could not see the obvious problem with this, namely that the family member would have to come up with the rent in order to cover the costs. But I'm not an independent financial adviser [sic] so what would I know.
  10. Partner is a teacher who wants to do a PhD. Sounds to me like one of her sixth formers is going to have fun at university. Back on topic: I have a 15 year mortgage at 2.25% fixed for 5 years whose payments are less than a quarter my monthly income and I'm worried that I made a mistake. I dont know how some folk can sleep at night.

    Kirsty & Phil's love it or list it

    Never heard of them either. Exactly what are their qualifications?

    What/who will collapse first in 2018

    I prefer to buy my music from the merch table at the back of a gig, that way I know that a decent percentage will go into keeping the band's smokey old Transit van on the road rather than fruitlessly trying to fill a hole in some company's pension pot.
  13. I didn't actually get him a self help books, that was a tongue in cheek statement. I actually got the boy an album of sheet music of tunes that I think he might enjoy playing on the piano or guitar.

    No problem This time last year the ASPC stock ticker was at 5293 and a few people doubted that it would pass 6000.
  15. I generally only buy gifts for my sibling' children and they generally only ever get bought books: E.g. "How To Win Friends And Influence People" for my clever but socially awkward 11 year old nephew. Never get someone cosmetics as a present because it's a bit an insulting implication that you think they are old-looking or smelly.
