  1. Same here, too many daft journalists writing doom & gloom stories without understanding the history and what's actually happening. I just want to see a healthy 25% drop in Cornwall by May 2012 when I come over to p*ss off EA's as a cash buyer .
  2. ING looks OK, you have a 100k euro guarantee. Hre we use Swiss francs, quite safe.
  3. I live in Switzerland, I know some very high-up bankers as they have holiday homes near me. All money withdrawn from eurobonds / eurozone. Hatches battoned down and welded up as well. Giving 50/50 chance that it all blows up before Xmas. When push comes to shove expecting Germany to call it quits first.
  4. Yes, they're telling you to buy an empty house with no onward chain You've had a rough ride, that's for sure.
  5. http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/index/do-it-online/webchats/rate-bills-webchat.htm This may well cheer you up: "However, a number of properties will be excluded from the rating of empty homes and one of the exclusion categories is where the empty home cannot be legally occupied."
  6. It depends on the local authorities, some will grant 12 months' exemption but not ten years. You can get the house removed from the banding, again this depends on the local council and don't forget: Google is your friend. My advice: sell.
  7. Can't turn into a business would be a problem for me as I work from home in the software industry.
  8. Except where you want to live. For inexplicable reasons prices there will rise by at least 250%.
  9. The award for the EA who couldn't be bothered to include a photo of the house: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-35530685.html?utm_content=ealertspropertyimage&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emailupdates&utm_campaign=emailupdatesjun11&utm_term=buying&sc_id=5797254
  10. To be honest i don't reckon - it's a joke, leave alone. Price has 100k to drop before it sells.
  11. Well I'm buying Cornwall next year even if I have to euthanise a few natives to get the house I want.
  12. There are also people with cash who are looking for a house which they'll buy to live in, maybe for the rest of their lives. If the price looks right they'll buy.
  13. So you're implying that I shouldn't rush out and buy Cornwall this month, rather wait until next year?
  14. Reduced from 550k to 425k http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-31314748.html?utm_source=rmrssfeed&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=buying Only another 100k to go...
  15. I agree - there are probate sales and the sale of holiday homes to fund retirement. Some of the prices are just comic. Inbetween all this dross there are some decent places, oh I'll enjoy being a cash buyer next spring.
  16. If there was no contract with these (scummy) lawyers then do not pay, instead report them to their professional association.
  17. Excuse my ignorance - is there any way to see what's been sold in a particular area and for how much? I'm watching new listings in Cornwall with Rightmove, it would be interesting to see sales as they happen / get registered. Any pointers welcomed, TIA.
  18. Now they're taking the proverbial: http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.aspx?edid=00&salerent=0&pid=10320789 295k yes, but 550k ?
  19. 600 grand and they can't be bothered with a single interior photo. http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.aspx?edid=00&salerent=0&pid=10310119
  20. They're putting stupid pills in the Cornwall water: http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.aspx?edid=00&salerent=0&pid=10310071 Or is it just me?
  21. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-31921219.html?utm_content=ealertspropertyimage&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emailupdates&utm_campaign=emailupdatesjun11&utm_term=buying&sc_id=5797254 1 It's not in Penzance, it's in Sennen Cove, and 2 Any chance of a picture of the outside of the hut? Lazy EA, shouldn't be in business!
