  1. http://www.gpss.tripoduk.com/nhscare/[/u] Sorry I dont know how to turn it into a link but the address above is of an independent site with good info re NHS funded continuing care. Best, Paulina
  2. you can pay iin up to £500 per month. paulina
  3. Hi there I posted this in main forum but it generated no discussion so perhaps it will be more relevant in this thread...Just searched website of Exeter EA Wilkinson Grant for two bed properties up to £500k. Search returned 161 props of which 31 are newbuilds and 34 are advertised as "no chain". I dont know what kind of percentage of properties would usually lie empty but this seems extraordinarily high to me. regards Paulina

  5. It may seem hard to believe but gold became the object of a speculative bubble not unlike the current HP situation where properties are bought and "flipped". You could go into H Samuel, buy a load of crap jewelry then immediately take it down to a second hand jewelry shop and sell it for the gold "spot purchase" price which would be more than you had just paid. Suspect this could not happen again as computerised systems will allow retailers to adjust prices quickly if gold takes off. Paulina
  6. The house in Melbourne Street went for 186k. Paulina
  7. To throw in a regional perspective - there is definitely an increase in property for rent in Exeter. The local paper has published a property supplement every Thursday for years. About a month ago it pulled the properties for rent and created a brand new Tuesday supplement just for them. There is plenty of property available but I have not been watching long enough to tell if prices are falling.
  8. I dont know if it is the same house but there is a Georgian terrace in the same street as described above listed in Fulfords March auction with a guide price £175k. http://www.fulfords.co.uk/property-details...ype=&rps=fulrps Paulina
  9. "does anyone know why the %age rate between orders made and houses reposessed has reduced so dramatically? has there been some change in the legal protection offered to home owners? or are they being given the chance to mew to pay off their arrears? whatever the reason is it is cutting the number of actual reposessions massively. (i hope it is not mewing 'cos, whilst reposession is completely devastating, loading up more debt may well be worse.)" It could be something to do with central gov requirements on local gov to prevent homelessness. Local authorites who fail to prevent homelessness
  10. Dear HPCers Thanks for the replies. The debate has echoed my own uncertainty - this is a stressful and very inconvenient situation but I am not quite sure it is sufficiently extreme to proceed with boiler replacement without approval of the l/lady. Having taken all you have said into account I have decided to take the following approach. I will go in and see the agent tomorrow with the specific goal of agreeing an emergency plan to deal with boiler breakdown over the Christmas period. i will ask to be supplied with number for a plumber who will definitely attend on Xmas day if necessary.

  11. I recently explored the possibility of converting a run down 3 bed terrace into a studio flat (downstairs) and two bed maisonette (upstairs). Central heating, electrics, kitchens and bathrooms would all be new and self-contained. I was planning to lease the property(s) to the local council. They would have given grants up to £10k per property in return for long leases so it looked like a good deal. I got planning permission which required all work to be done in accordance with building regs - in particular sound proofing and fire escape facilities. I went as far as to get quotes from 3 build
  12. Hi there My first post after longtime lurking. I am renting @ £850pcm. Tenancy began Nov 1 and the boiler has broken down three times - twice at the w/end so no heat or hot water for 36hrs (it is a combi boiler). Agent has been Ok and sent plumbers each time but basically boiler is shot. Both plumbers have said it needs to be replaced or it will continue breaking down. One plumber has said he will not respond to any future call outs as he has given his professional opinion it needs to be replaced. I am never sure if the boiler will work and most days I have to let water in before it will fi
