  1. You could say you're happy to pay a reasonable cost to cover the work involved in changing a few dates and printing some new contracts then posting them out? £20 should cover it 😉 Be nice to see their response. If letting agents had been charging reasonable costs, there would have been no need for the ban.
  2. "Only 11% of tenancies are ended by the landlord and over three quarters of those are because of high rent arrears" I'd love to know how they arrived at this statistic? We have been subject to section 21 in our last 3 rentals. Also, this doesn't include tenants that decide to move because repairs are not made, rents are raised to ludicrous levels or tenants are passively harassed with unnecessary inspections. Ending Section 21 would be the best thing to happen for tenants and perhaps the wider housing market. Those that become "accident landlords" would have to think far harder about it if they could only evict tenants at fault.
  3. Nationwide Save to Buy ISA has been at 2% for as long as I can remember. Help to Buy ISA recently went up to 2.5% Nationwide and Coventry are about to get desperate for capital.
  4. Unbelievable! They are blaming the drop in price of their home on Help to Buy. Presumably though, because it's a government scheme that means they want a bailout. Looks like lobbying for a Help to Move scheme. Throw in potential mortgage fraud. Hope they told their lender about this "We are still paying Jessica’s family back for the money we borrowed to put towards our deposit." These people are idiots of the highest order and I'm totally sick of helping them out.
  5. Modifying or extending? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6122977/Ministers-fear-Help-Buy-scheme-pushing-house-prices.html "However, the Daily Telegraph has revealed that ministers are weighing up a temporary extension to take it beyond 2022, though it could be a restricted version of the scheme."
  6. Check the disclaimer. Basically, those figures are theirs and they can publish what they want. If that changes, what are you going to do about, eh? This paragraph says all you need to know. "The Index is prepared from information that IHS Markit and Lloyds believes is collated with care, but IHS Markit and/or Lloyds do not make any warranty, guarantee or representation as to its accuracy, timeliness or completeness, or its fitness for any particular purpose. The Index is provided on an "as is", "where is" basis. IHS Markit reserves the right to vary or discontinue the Index at any time for regulatory or other reasons. Various factors, including external factors beyond IHS Markit and Lloyds' control might necessitate material changes to the Index."
  7. Says something about the state of the market that it's commonly regarded that the only way to afford a house in London is to win the lottery.
  8. Apparently not. Everyone I know who "owns" their home applauds like a trained seal when prices go up.
  9. By the look of the graph this "surge" follows the biggest drop in 3 years. Nothing to see here, move on.
  10. Don't get too excited, this index was -1.3% in Jan 2017....
  11. I'm a first time buyer, under 40 (just), and all I need is for the government to stop helping. PLEASE STOP HELPING! ARRRGGGHHHHHHH!
