  1. Secret footage unmasks carrier behind lethal bird flu strike on Labour leadership duo.
  2. If it doesn't pass over to the Other Side pretty soon, perhaps we'd better bring it back on topic? The housing boom is well and truly dead and buried and BTL-ers are all haunted by the spectre of a crash. They've dug their own graves, now they can see their investments go up in smoke.
  3. What's the price/urnings ratio? Reviving it could prove a stiff challenge this mourning.
  4. One possible source of so-called "demand" ... A couple of snippets from the Government's response to the consultation on their shared ownership scheme "HomeBuy", which came out last week: Government's response to consultation
  5. Morgueloom on its way for the housing market then?
  6. This thread still hasn't been killed off ... We're all crying in our bier.
  7. They wouldn't have the ghost of a chance before the rot sets in.
  8. http://www.statistics.gov.uk/articles/econ...ET620_Baran.pdf
  9. "Litigation, litigation, litigation" Follow the fortunes of a procession of somewhat less than financially savvy recent homebuyers finding their properties have dropped by 20%, as they all try to sue their surveyors for "overvaluation". Maybe Tony and Cherie could go first. "Evasion, evasion, evasion" Beset by a horde of irate ex-fans and maybe facing "litigation, litigation, litigation" themselves, Kirstie and Phil hastily book a one-way ticket to Rio. "The Muppet Show" In an effort to get round restrictions on the amount of repeats they're allowed to show, the producers have taken the prudent and perhaps timely step of renaming this re-broadcast of "Location, location, location".
  10. It would be interesting to know how much this downshifting uber-frugalist is spending in terms of money and resources every day in commuting from the wilds of Oxfordshire to his London workplace. Enough to pay for a very low-budget house-share within a few miles' jogging distance of work (so he'd save on his gym membership too) ? Or is this too sensible? And if not, don't they have ditches anywhere a bit nearer London these days?
  11. "The Oxford law graduate is a regular at the gym and often meets friends for drinks in the capital's bars." "'I want to make people think about how much they consume that is not necessary,' said Sawyer"
  12. Do you perchance mean "How to Buy a House" Spencer & Allsopp, 2004? Well, I just so happen to have a copy of it right here. A few choice quotes: "Be very, very nice to estate agents ... We realise this is a revolutionary concept" "Home buying isn't all bad. It's like having a baby." "... when faced with a spreadsheet I want to weep" "no sooner does a single man purchase a property than he has a girlfriend ... there's nothing more attractive to a woman than a man of property." "They [ solicitors ] make teenagers in love look sensible" "it's essential to keep everyone on their toes and leaping around like the cast of Riverdance" The hypothetical scenario about wanting to pour cold coffee into the radiator of an estate agent's flashy car was quite a good read. Actually to be fair, the book does have some plus points, especially tactics to keep the whole process moving along (Riverdance excepted). Oh and they did have one erudite financial insight: "Opinion is always divided as to whether the market will go up or down"
  13. Perhaps when they referred to Bed 1 as a "cracking great room", the poor EAs were only trying to be honest about the building's massive subsidence problem. Otherwise I'm sure it would be on at £100K more at least.
  14. Note the estate agent's details ... Andrews Estate Agents, Bear Flat branch. how appropriate.
  15. Indeed, who'd want a dog as a landlord?
