    Here We Go. Agent Struggling

  3. Wonder why forums are suddenly so unprofitable. I've noticed some really active communities close recently.
  4. I can't remember the statistic now but I read something like 50 percent of homes built since 1800 no longer exist. Not sure if that's true or not but it would suggest that many homes built in times gone by were of poor quality.
  5. I suspect they'll start closing branches as part of a "restructuring plan" shortly.

    Australia 75% drops

    It really is ethnic cleansing on an unprecedented scale, the UK and Western Europe immigration. People quote that around 300k people a year come here, and about the same number leave. About half of people leaving are Brits, so natives are effectively being replaced to the tune of 500k a year.
  7. Not sure if too late now but here's my 2 pence having been in a similar position about 4 years ago. It really depends on your personality. £400k isn't going to last very long; a lot of people will never come into that amount of money and see stars, i.e assume it's a lifechanging amount - but it really isn't. It'll allow you to have a few wonderful years off - but what then? I know that if I sold my business when offered I would have deeply regretted it - look into Jo Malone's story for a good descriptor, she has written extensively about her 'loss' and regret. What does one do with oneself if not working at least some of the time? Do you have any other plans?

    Well you can get away with once a year. That's how often i do mine, in October time. You could just say you're growing them for privacy

    What will the London collapse now do...

    Life expectedly peaked about 10 years ago in the UK if i recall correctly. You only need to look at the replies to the 10 A Day thread in off topic to see why.

    Hedges need to be cut 1 to 3 times a year though. Did you consider asking the local farmer? mine tops mine or puts his rams in it.

    Housebuilder paying people to buy homes

    I'm pretty sure Mcdonalds are built with this method. one in town appeared overnight pretty much.

    Diesel Thefts

    Can't it be used for heating oil eg instead of kerosene too?

    That's fair enough. But mowing the lawn isn't that time consuming once a week. If you want a really nice garden then admittedly you'd have to hire either a gardener or a nanny!

    I agree with that - except for online shopping. That genuinely DOES make it easier than traipsing round a shop,
  15. Nobody can tell you what will happen on here or elsewhere. You pay your money etc. There are more worrying things than Article 50 going on.
