  1. https://www.mumsnet.com/talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/4581392-my-landlords-unable-to-absorb-cost-of-living-increase Won’t someone think of the poor landlords.
  2. I’ll report back tomorrow 😀. It’s interesting that 2 look like ex BTLs too so I’ll see what spin the EA puts on that.
  3. It’s a lot easier to get a viewing now though. In April, I was phoning about viewings and being told they’d had 80 odd enquiries about the property. I’ve seen 3 on RM today and have viewings on 2 from calls made today. One EA is even letting me view outside of standard hours. Both look like ex BTLs.
  4. @Roman Roady Any decent drops in Trafford, Manchester? Or are the HKers still propping up prices?
  5. I went to Barrow with work recently. It’s about 20 years since my last visit. I thought that with all the money BAE is paying the locals to work there it would be a lot nicer than it is. They must be spending their BAE salaries elsewhere.
  6. You’re wrong. They don’t have national healthcare in the US, so contraception is not always available or free. Especially in the Jesus - belt. They don’t even get sex education in schools in some states.
  7. Is contraception accessible and free in the US? Also contraception fails sometimes.
  8. Sentiment seems to have changed a lot, in a matter of weeks. Not just on mumsnet but in the MSM too. Although I spotted an HPI 4eva article in the DM yesterday.
  9. https://www.mumsnet.com/talk/property/4576520-house-sale-fallen-through
  10. Civil Service being balloted for September strikes too.
  11. I posted about this and has told I was every HPCers dream woman 🤣. I do still pay for the gym and pool because exercise makes me feel better. But I’ve cut out pedicures, eyebrows as they are easy to do at home - I’ve wasted so much money in these over the years. I still need my hair cutting - women’s hair is harder to cut at home than men’s, unless you go for a number 2 all over with the clippers which some women do do.
  12. Sentiment seems to have changed on mumsnet. Most posters are expecting interest rates to go up.
  13. https://www.mumsnet.com/talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/4571403-to-ask-when-interest-rates-will-likely-go-down Getting interesting over in mumsnet land.
  14. https://www.mumsnet.com/talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/4571403-to-ask-when-interest-rates-will-likely-go-down OP sounds ******ed.
  15. Thanks. Just clicked on it expecting an article. Might save it for bedtime over the weekend 😀
  16. That’s an interesting article. There’s another in the Guardian about a big increase in returns to clothing retailers. Has the bad economic news really ramped up over the last week? Or did I just not notice it before?
  17. I think I read average outstanding mortgage is 150k but I can’t remember where I read that.
  18. I wondered this. Is inflating their debts away the only option left? Is that why the BoE have only raised interest rates by 0.25%?
  19. I’ve just been having a chat with my lender. There are an unprecedented amount of borrowers coming off fixed rate deals in the next few months.
  20. I’ve got 50 % LTV. guaranteed for 6 months on a new purchase. It’s 2.45% 10 year fix. I applied on 31st May and locked it in. The same mortgage is now 2.75%. With Halifax, through a broker.
  21. Sounds like it will get worse if they strike from September. DWP too.
  22. Who would buy a 100 year old house without a survey? I agree there is probably something substantial wrong with it.
  23. Yeah, I’ve got a 2.4% 10 year fix. It’s guaranteed for 6 months. Was approved this morning. I currently live in a granny flat at my parents. I gave up my private rental last year. I don’t have a great deal of privacy here and it’s a 5 hour round trip to work but I only go in 2 days a week now. I’m not paying anywhere near market rate rent.
  24. Civil Servants. DVLA, Passport Office, Customs. Talk of strikes from late summer.
