  1. You're right, I am yet to see a new build development with enough parking.
  2. Indeed, silly me, I should know it all comes down to how much money they can get out of you.
  3. Beckton - where i've lived since 2004. For the first 5 years it was nice, peaceful even. Then in 2009 they moved in 2 families from hell, both single mothers with 5 boys between them and not a job or a father in sight. It began because I asked 2 of the boys to stop smocking weed on my doorstep and leaving their rubbish and spit on my door step. Tried speaking to the parents only to be told that I was a stuck up cow and didn't own the whole close. Anyway long to short of it, my car was damaged repeatedly, £800 worth of scratches on the drivers side doors, two broken wing mirrors and 3 flat t
  4. Thanks Hopefully it goes well, although as it's Newham I am remaining optimistically cynical (if that makes sense) The parking situation is ridiculous. There is no street parking at all and an assigned parking space is going to cost me £60 a month. I have no idea why these developments are created without any thought for a standard thing like parking.
  5. It is a little sad - but this country seems intent on short changing those that arguably contribute the most. The worst part is I actually feel like one if the lucky ones.
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm been reading the site for a while (about 3 years) and its been a wonderfully insightful knowledge source. For a site that I stumbled across by accident, its now one of my daily reads. I stated reading the site after I discovered that although I was earning a fair salary I was unable to buy a decent home for myself. So the reason for my post is that i've been granted a flat in the Olympic Village or East Village as it's now called. I'm due to move in 4-6 weeks and it's going to an interesting time for me, especially since the one bed flat I will be renting from the housi
  7. Interesting article – what really stood out for me was the top earning bracket being £52k, which is a high salary; yet particularly in London many in that bracket would be able to find a houseto buy in reasonable multiples (x3.5 of income). Madness. http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/the-best-paid-jobs.html
  8. Really interesting thread. My 2 pennies worth... Female not long turned 35 – 46.5k a year basic, raising to approx 54k with bonus and share vesting options. Work as a global service level manager for large IT company (think routers and switches). Live in East London, and renting 1 bed flat from HA, so rent is very low compared to private rents (400 per month). Been here for 7 years and if it were not for me being lucky enough to get this flat would probably be living in a house share. Plan is to start saving aggressively in the next 6-9 months, once I have cleared debts accumulat
  9. Just a big thank you! Came across this site around a month ago, and have spent a couple of hours each day reading through the various threads. It has been an absolute wealth of information to me, and also reassured me in the decisions I made 4 years ago. When all of my close friends were buying property, at ridiculous prices, none of them could quite understand my decision to stay off the property market and concentrate on becoming completely and utterly debt free and save as much as possible. I was told I’d be left behind, and that I was making the biggest mistake of my life. They aren'
