  1. Only going on past experience but : No need to leave for viewings, just a smile and don't mind us when answering the door .Get EA/LL to give you 24hr notice of all viewings, it's just easier for all. You are still paying rent for the place, if the land lord didn't want you there then he has to terminate the lease-<read :lose money.> As for cleaning the house.. well we always pick up the undies from the floor : ) General tidy up is a good idea, although polishing the furniture and roasting a chicken or brewing coffee before they come may mean you have to leave sooner than you thought. The painting, i doubt you'd have to paint it back. Check with LL. (New owner has never seen the old paint color so won't know the difference) he's buying it with the current now color so why would he think he'd get a different one later...
  2. Wow, so no-one is an expat then. Never knew restaurant fair had to do with it
  3. Not true i'm afraid. Anecdotal but, have a clutch of Indian workers in offices in a town in Berkshire going through an Indian IT agency/IT firm who do all the visa and provide housing for them. Wages are below UK minimum wage (big slice taken for housing, and guaranteeing the worker difficulty if they leave the agency), the agency and the rather large Indian gentleman who pimps them out take the lions share. As a company we paid about 150-200 a day to said agency, they saw less than half that.(Much less) Could have changed by now I left 2 months ago, but.. i doubt it. Imported outsourcing (Edited to clarify somefink)
  4. Not quite true, if your house is valued higher you can MEW the crap out of it as your pension. Would depend on the criteria the bank has. Having said this my mother has just got another 10 year mortgage at 67 years old ... (Taxpayer backed financial institutions are great, huh)
  5. Hmm, he was a bit simple with his crass way. He should have opened an offshore and protected bank account in the name of some non-doms who'd made some limited company and then invoiced and paid for some consultancy back to himself through a third entity in a seperate time zone and with no agreement on financial information China.Thailand or the like you know somewhere where they do things on paper // or the like. His crime , well tbh.. a minor thing, BUT his stupidity not doing this properly - is CRIMINAL. I wouldn't want an MP who didn't have the nouse to do something that was above board to the human eye. MP .. seems like a good career path to me or is that for me.
  6. Not sure i agree with that. Yep they're up to their armpits in debt, yep they have major difficulties with a seemlingly never ending bail-out, and balance sheets that don't reflect truth. But they have been the country that so far has been willing to let things go to the wall. Not every sector or company, but in general they have let things slide, if anything they are the ones i see as having been most realistic on the ground, and the ones that will have a quicker more exuberant resurgence later. (BTW we're not a the lowest ebb yet) It's a shame that helicopter Ben is trying hard to distort this realistic approach.. IMHO
  7. Why are you angry about this? Blood boiling is on the whole bad. Out of interest, If a person can do the same work from their home remotely. Does this still induce boiling? Just curious as i don't understand where you are coming from, and I won't spout off about saved carbon from being at home blah blah.
  8. Enjoy it and enjoy yourself. Relax. I'm in excatly the same situation, small difference of a move to Australia but the handover here is done. Oddly many of my colleagues have taken my leaving very sourly as if i had stabbed them in the back, the colleagues in Japan anyway, i think work is akin to life for some of them over there. May go in later for a coffee though, as it's only down the road, and the coffee is good. Good luck with the new direction.
  9. Unfortunately the rounded fonts and big graphics have sent me off looking for something with a more grown-up feel. Still come for a browse but with the chunkiness of everything it's more difficult to find house price and economic news amongst the political vitriole
  10. Nice smiley at the end... only .. that's just insulting someone, not funny or clever really.
  11. Clarification if you would - becasue i'm not sure. I read 'VI' as spin or an angle on something. But to be honest i have no idea of what it really means or is meant to mean, or indeed where it comes from .. it does seem to have a negative feeling when used though, is that always the case ?

  13. Nope, he inhereted and followed through. A little Naive.. shoulda looked a bit closer.
  14. Jeeezuz. Worse case scenario. Many stopgaps on the way to soften the blow. Should be softer .. gentler gentler.. Yet still with a bang.
