  1. This was also in the local free paper where it said he had to sell a flat he owned to fund the demolition and fines,my heart bleeds,not. http://www.harlow.gov.uk/pr16-63
  2. What were they thinking,living in the town it is not the best estate by a mile and as they say home is what you make it but i think their aspirations are a bit on the high side ffs,photo 2 may cause you to find some mind bleach. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-51931514.html
  3. Our situation is thus,we have a 4 bed ex council house with two kids aged 28/30 living at home and another who is renting a tatty flat with a friend for £700 a month,we have no mortgage and i and the wife work part time as do all the kids(full time) and at the moment job security does not seem a problem although who knows at the moment. The wife and myself have enough enough cash two buy a 2 bed house locally for the daughter and the plan would be to buy this in my name and she would then pay me the rent and on my death it would be left to her in the will,the current house would be signed ove
  4. This is the situation,boomer and wife with a 4bed ex council house,wife works pt and i do the odd day and am receiving a small(£65 a week)pension,we have three kids two of which are living at home and the daughter who is paying 700 a month for a two bed flat that is not in the best maintained condition,the plan was to leave the house to them when we peg it but as interest rates are so rubbish we are thinking of buying a 2 bed house for the daughter and taking the 700 a month rent from her and friend to supplement the pension. It would be a cash purchase and would take just about all the savin
  5. Have long known that you are just being used by both agency and the Co but have accepted this as hours and work availability suited me,you are right in what you say about a firewall as this supermarket uses a Co called De pohl/Paul who dictate to the agencies on behalf of the end user,i was at the office the other day whilst one of the staff was explaining the benefits/fiddles of being self employed to a driver and wish that i could have recorded the conversation as HMRC would have been interested no doubt but as i have friends working there who need the money i will not be taking that route d
  6. Have long realised that the agency's cream a good profit off for themselves but did not have a problem with that as the hours i wanted to work suited,it was put to me that by going self employed i would gain an extra £1 an hour but this will be worth more to the agency as they will not need a payroll dept. Whilst in the office the other day the consultant was telling a driver the benefits of working this way,just wish i could have recorded the conversation as she explained the various fiddles available especially mileage claims at 45p a mile,if i was bitter about this i would call HMRC but wi

  8.

  9. . Just a few words from someone who has lurked on the site for a while and who is affected by this EU rubbish,i have worked as a hgv driver for a large supermarket(making life taste bitter)via an agency on a paye basis for some 6 years at two sites in Essex and Herts,since the 12 week period started in October i have been pressured by the agency that i should become self employed via a dodgy umbrella scheme or otherwise i will not be able to work beyond Christmas eve but after looking at the pros and cons decided i could not comply with IR35 and given that i am 59 and receiving a small pensio
