  1. I find this quite astonishing: £240k for 3 bed terrace (cheap for Brighton) "let to a protected tenant paying a registered rent of £85pw (£4,420pa)" Doesn't that mean the true value of the house to an investor is somewhere between £50k and £100k? http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-52601463.html
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/nov/08/one-in-every-200-people-in-uk-are-homeless-according-to-shelter There's quite a disparity between Shelter's estimate and 4500.
  3. The big companies I've worked for allow sabbaticals of 6 months (even paid sabbaticals in some cases) at managers discretion.
  4. Though I'm a bear, and an FTB, I think it's better that I miss out for the time being than 1000's of people lose their homes. I feel sorry for people dragged into more debt than they should by buying a house now, but the numbers will be alot smaller than 200k.
  5. Hmm - that's not true, there are plenty of regions with drops.
  6. Land registry figures show a 0.1% rise for B+H - that is the full extent of the recovereh. What are you all complaining about?
  7. Reminds me of the flat Renton uses in Trainspotting when he's going cold turkey, but about half the size.
  8. It's not rubbish - I've worked in the states, and worked with people brought over from the states for a particular job. It's a good idea. Having RTFA though, I see the problem is the change to allow new graduates, rather than experienced professionals, to take advantage. That is clearly open to abuse.
  9. It's intra-company - these people already are permies. It would be ridiculous to stop it, secondments to foreign countries are a useful part of IT, and I imagine a similar number will be seconded out of the UK.
  10. This house http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...es%26index%3D10 Bought in June 2005 for 190k when the average price for Brighton and Hove was 184k. The average price for Brighton and Hove is now 188k (2% higher), yet this is on the market for £250k (32% higher). No improvements done in that time, as indicated by the 'scope for improvement' in the blurb. Wonder how they arrived at £250k?
  11. Why does zoopla estimate a 5% increase in the last 3 months when the LR shows a decrease?
