    Just been texted the front page of the evening standard:


    Redundancies, No deal Brexit, Christmas,  etc all happening now or in the short term. We are going downhill and about to pick up some serious speed. 

    In my opinion, the last to realise or those in denial m will be the ones who have the biggest impact on negative sentiment. Come on let’s be having you! 


  2. I think we already have more than -10% in the South. If we get -10% on record, I think we will get -20% for sure. 

    I know someone who just accepted 23% below asking price. I also know 3 or 4 people in negative equity of 100k who bought in the last 3 years (new builds) high end help to buy!  




  3. It has been on for the last couple of years, but I think this really is it. We are getting close to the exciting part of the crash. The perfect storm for so many reasons, now it is about to become common knowledge the market is going to crash, sentiment is going to plummet. Hold tight!

    Which is their democratic right to do so.

    The referendum was advisory, the government called a election and presented their plan to implement that direction. The government LOST the election because it's plans were unacceptable. 

    The Leavers voted against Brexit. As did the DUP who have THEIR mandate.

    It's all perfectly democratic. Just shit, but remainers know that.

    Do you think having:

    Remain parliament

    Remain PM

    Remain chancellor

    Remain biased media

    Representing the majority, frustrating the entire process is democracy? No? me either. That is why the Brexit party will now surge......

    That's exactly what I thought. I went to check property prices there, and the first thing I saw was a 1 bed end of terrace LEASEHOLD slave-box on at £88k for 40% share (so £220k for 100%). By 2022 £88k might be for 100% lol. 

    It will be a very interesting area to keep an eye on prices going forward.

    Make them agree to reduce the rent by £100 month from now on, until you move out nomatter what, in return for allowing the first viewing. Don't make it conditional on "during months when there are viewings". There could be no viewings, yet they expect you to keep the place tidy in case there are some.

    The rent reduction should be permanent even if they decide not to sell it.

    OP you are in a STRONG position, this is rare. Use your strength.

    Walking past our local Aldi, the vehicles nearest the car park entrance were -

    A Jag. A hybrid Toyota. A Range/Land Rover.  An Audi. All newish, large, up market vehicles. I didn't carry out an intensive study, think I'd seen enough.

    But wait. Are the people who drive these shopping in Aldi because they're feeling the pinch OR have they been shopping cheaply in Aldi for so long that they found they can afford fancy motors?

    Just asking.


    Time will tell I guess. I rent the cheapest flat in the best block in my area. All these supposedly rich people are Lidl & Aldi shoppers. It’s a mirage. 

    Personally I prefer an old car ( I have the biggest shit heap) and Marks & Spencer dine for 2 = £20

    Salmon & prawn stack 

    Sirloin steak with garlic butter

    Billionaire desert

    bottle of red Beaujolais 

    Can't go wrong!
