    Pre - Fab Cost £65,000

    Find a mortgage for a prefab house, it's a very limited market. This is only going to force issues when trying to sell as the prospective buyers will struggle to get a mortgage. This in turn forces you to reduce the price as it isn't a 'traditional' construction method. Tread carefully with mmc's (modern methods of construction)

    Interest Rates

    If WTO is the result then the cost of the additional tariffs on goods and services from abroad will fuel inflation by potentially double digit % increases which in turn is usually regulated by increasing interest rates, however being the dovish boe governor we know him to be, I can't help but think Carney will experiment with alternative methods of controlling inflation outside of interest rate increases.

  7. Furthermore the AVG house prices not seasonally adjusted have fallen each month since July from £217,040 to £214,044
  8. I notice that the average price reduced by £500 between oct18 and nov18 despite an increase in the monthly index value. Smell very fishy to me
  9. And there it is, project fear, the source of this journalistic scaremongering. Savills!

    Best London commuter towns

    I live in Dorset with my wife and 4kids. 2days a week I work from home, the other 3days I sleep in my motorhome in London. There isn't a hope in hell's chance anyone would convince me that anywhere in London or even commutable to London is worth the standard of living that I provide my family in Dorset.
  14. Saw this and made me giggle. Go on someone try it, dare you!
  15. Currently there are rules that if a holiday let is available (I think) for more than 140days then it is liable for business rates (Non-Domestic Rates NDR) rather than council tax, however they can claim small business relief if turnover is less than 15k pa (again I think). This means no CT and NDR of zero liability.
