Everything posted by inflating

  1. http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/mortgages/rent-a-property?utm_source=MSE_Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=25-Jun-13&utm_campaign=mortgages&utm_content=40 A little taster...
  2. Is there a critical difference in the time-scale between the inflate and deflate options? I'm wondering if it's as different as it was once supposed it would be
  3. Shoot, that sounds childish enough to be their plan. That's taken the wind out of my sails or piszed on my bonfire.
  4. Yes, all they need to charge is GBP50. For that, an agency can get a credit check and pay for the printing and docs. But in any case, why should they be able to charge the tenant a penny, when they already charge the landlord and make a packet on that? Most businesses have to pay for credit checks out of their own wedge, who's ever heard of making a customer pay for their own credit check? And they don't just charge for that (which is about 20 quid or less) but hundreds more for every nonsense they can think of.
  5. Negative rates spoken about by one at the BofE, higher implied by another. Ar$e, meet elbow.
  6. Thanks for posting this. Hilarious, as just a few days ago Mr Bean was saying they might go neg. Do they gave any clue at all on what they are doing or is this all deliberate ?
  7. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2348576/Mark-Carney-Get-ready-mortgage-rate-rise.html?ito=feeds-newsxml
  8. The UK domestic market was responsible for most of the issue, taking around 97 per cent of the allocation. - See more at: http://www.cityam.com/article/longest-gilt-1930s#sthash.RZaE7Y1c.dpuf Who bought them, the BofE?
  9. It's on the front page top right panel, does it not say 'mortgage rates to stay low for years'?
  10. Is that why Mr Bean gave us a negative rebuff http://www.citywire.co.uk/money/bank-of-england-negative-rates-remain-an-option/a687692?ref=citywire-money-latest-news-list (he also said it in Feb)
  11. You can be a trifle harsh, old bean! Usually I quite like him and I'm very far from being a teenage girl throwing my Peacock knicks in his direction, he's also pretty down to earth as people go
  12. Interesting post FT, thanks for taking the time to post, especially considering your other commitments. Hope all is well soon.
  13. They surely won't let that happen to hard-working fraudsters families? Won't they be tempted to print their t!ts off now?
  14. BIS having told govts to stop gazing fondly on CB stimulus, plus a few other factors you might have read about elsewhere on HPC, makes me wonder whether an uptick in IRs for savers is now not so much of a pipe-dream. Perhaps in a few weeks or a month? Living in hope...
  15. Am I joining the dots correctly if I suggest maybe this is the reason they have spoken? http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=191405
  16. Head for the exits, CBs told (reports the FT) http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/455af4a6-dc09-11e2-a861-00144feab7de.html http://www.guardian.co.uk/global/2013/jun/23/kickstarting-growth-threaten-stability-central-bank http://gata.org/node/12713 Thankfully, we can now all relax as BIS are on the case ...
  17. btw I wonder if that's code for IRs might rise, probably too much to hope for that any reality returns unless it's forced on them
  18. Average SE asking price ... 510K ! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2345436/Negative-equity-hits-1-7-North-West--just-111-homes-South-East.html Eh?!!
  19. Could just be a glitch while Carnage changes the printer cartridge.
  20. Lord Merv? Good heavens, is it he who kept such wonderful control of inflation? I won't bother to ask what Jeffrey Osborne was thinking when he nominated him http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/chancellor-jeffrey-osborne-obama-makes-080927569.html
  21. I checked RM just now. I found 1 area down a bit and 2 other areas up about 10% on the asking prices I remember from a few months ago plus green STCs on them. 1 other one was slightly cheap, however, and asked for cash buyers due to a short lease (99 yrs from 1977). Nothing cheered me very much tbh although I think one's a flat I offered on 2 years ago and they withdrew as they rejected my offer. Now it's on for slightly less on the asking price. Won't say any more as don't want to completely kill any chance I have of being invited to one of Bruce's big screen home cinema nights
