  1. I don't post here much but have been visiting regularly since 2006. I'm now in the process of buying a house so I thought I'd share an edited version of our story. I don't include this all to in some way justify our decision as I'm purchasing with my with eyes wide open; I just thought that as per the title of this board it might be of anecdotal interest to some. Firstly, on financials. STR 2007, mostly based on the arguments found here. Everyone we knew told us not to what with the house being in a 'nice' leafy part of East London, near Stratford and on the tube, bound to rise in value mete
  2. Mid-Wales. Sorry, In my excitement and haste my maths failed me rather embarrassingly. £6k = 1 year rent. That said my neighbours who rent the 2 bed place next door it is about 20 months.

  7. Ok own up, which of you posted that. Homeowner LOL.
  8. Talk about splitting hairs. Watford is on the tube, it's plainly not London. Epping is on the tube, ditto. So is Heathrow. That said I lived in E11 for years and Ilford was next door, relatively speaking. Get a room or something.
  9. Website when viewed on mobile fail. Is it copy/pastable?
