  1. When I wanted a siphon valve it was £4 in tool station and £15 in B&Q. It was the exact same model. I think I have only bought paint from B&Q since.
  2. I probably read for a few months before joining. I still haven't bought residential. I have a small mortgage against a commercial property that is running at 1% over base. Thankfully my savings are earning 3%+ so that mortgage will be staying for the time being. The clock is ticking and I can probably hold out for another year. I'll let everyone know when I buy as that is when we will have a decent crash :/
  3. I wonder what the powers that be have in store for the next 10? EDIT: Why the big S?
  4. And it's probably nearer 3 wide in usable width when walls are taken into consideration. Where do I sign?
  5. Good luck OP. It sounds like you are in a much better position than most and I hope it works out well for you. I'm another 04'er. I still haven't bought but it hasn't all been to do with prices. Personal circumstances have meant renting has been more effective over the last few years. These have changed now so I will probably capitulate sometime in the next 2 years.
  6. The full EPC contains the sq/m. Occasionally you can view it directly through rightmove. If not a bit of time using google street view will deliver a house number so you can search the register yourself. I don't know how they calculate the figure or how accurate it is though.
  7. It appears to me that the love line was meant to go on the end so they clearly don't do thinking carefully about something before they do it. I wouldn’t like to see them assemble an Ikea wardrobe.
  8. I was paying about £37pm to attend DW (peak membership). One day I noticed an offer flash up on the in gym TV for £25pm. I switched over as did the wife. All it means is we cannot go to any other DW. Prior to switching over we were considering leaving so the drop in cost kept us as members. I don't think I would be happy paying over £30pm now. At that point I would consider buying some cardio equipment for home (I already have weights). Who has the space for gym equipment at home now days? Maybe that is why gyms are doing ok. Mine is always packed out.
  9. The grass in the second picture looks like it's been spray painted if you didn't know it was Photoshopped (thought to be fair to Photoshop it looks more like it was done in MS paint). As has been said, I can't believe they didn't add in some twigs while they were at it. Forget hiding the window, that’s definitely the cardinal sin here.
  10. I love the camera lens they use to take pictures of the inside. I think it’s the same one used to film Dr Who. Reminds me of this: Before: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=stag+lane,+buckhurst+hill&aq=&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=20.036172,35.463867&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Stag+Ln,+Buckhurst+Hill+IG9,+United+Kingdom&ll=51.626249,0.031435&spn=0.010244,0.017316&z=16&layer=c&cbll=51.626222,0.031611&panoid=U1NyRkfg86_P3E_4zJAAvQ&cbp=12,215.98,,0,9.81 After: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:TmITNupyFgQJ:www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-26796904.html+stag+lane,+bockhurst+hill,+rightmove&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk&source=www.google.co.uk
  11. That’s true. However if I can vote is a way that possibly speeds things up (look at my sig and you’ll see I’ve been waiting a while) I will try to do so.
  12. I have the option of Lib Dem, Con, Ukip, Lab, Socialist Lab. GF has Green, Con, Lib dem, Lab, UKIP, BNP, Christian Peoples Alliance. I have read that a hung parliament would be beneficial to my aim, so to vote Lib Dem. Apparently whilst UKIP have suggested letting the market correct they are all ex or closely related to bankers and either way it would be a wasted vote anyway.
  13. I'm looking in the North West (Wigan, Atherton, St Helens area). Renting a 2 bed flat atm. I made the mistake of showing the price drop to my GF hence why there is now a viewing booked The last time a womans nesting instinct kicked in I became a single man. This time however I'm am slightly tempted to go with it. My main problem with this particular area is crap broadband speeds. How is mobile broadband if you like to download a lot? One of the properties has fallen more but is one where they have built into what would have been the attic. I have noticed tape over the bog in the pics so it looks like a repo. Out of my league but it comes up when I search is one that was on for 800k for over a year. It vanished and then came back at 775k. Within days it dropped to 700k. It appears at least some people are getting a bit more realistic. My problem is judging if the original asking price was completely insane and so there may be potential for significant falls from the lowered "bargain" price. I could withstand a bit but wouldn't be happy for it to fall a lot.
