  1. Massive Brexit victory: https://metro.co.uk/2020/12/30/eu-migrants-who-come-to-uk-wont-be-able-to-claim-benefits-for-5-years-13823436/ Any migrants from the EU arriving in the UK from January 1 will be barred from claiming benefits for a period of five years. Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey is expected to confirm today that those coming to the UK from the continent will be subject to the same rules as those coming from the rest of the world. There will also be changes to child benefits rules, meaning workers will no longer receive money for children living outside the UK, Read more: https://metro.co.uk/2020/12/30/eu-migrants-who-come-to-uk-wont-be-able-to-claim-benefits-for-5-years-13823436/?ito=cbshare Twitter: https://twitter.com/MetroUK | Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MetroUK/
  2. Extremely poor transport links though! And not much in the way of large shops, you will have to travel for decent clothing or anything big or expensive.
  3. Charts showing a decline in everything but the nominal price of housing, and declaring it as some sort of victory..... You couldn't make it up! 😂
  4. It's just not happening TCON: https://www.zoopla.co.uk/discover/property-news/mortgage-approvals-soared-to-a-13-year-high-in-september/?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=discover&utm_content=features&fbclid=IwAR32MV_HYlLOcfgRxOeqBRaYvgyPMvnwPI7qsNZ60jAtjYyTii7heyQ7Exw Mortgage approvals for house purchases soared to a 13-year high in September as the rush to buy a home in time to benefit from the stamp duty holiday continued. A total of 91,500 mortgages were given the green light in September, the highest level since September 2007.
  5. How do you know what other investments I have or what I do for a living even? 8 years is pretty much a given for the mortgage, maybe even less if I overpay....
  6. I think some of that may have been local authority housing at some point? However, it most certainly has never had the bad rep of BBL afaik. Almost 100% positive.
  7. My house will be paid off in 8 years time, but you'll still be paying your Landlord's mortgage 😉
  8. Not applicable to a lot of us that got fixed rates for a little over 1% though, is it
  9. You're better off at the Frys Hill end of Greater Leys (between the stadium and brake hill) for that price, steer clear of Brake hill and Green Hill. Verbena Way, next to Fieldfare Road, is the start of the social housing cluster adjacent to the stadium, again avoid! Look for houses with the burglar alarms, these are privately owned, the others are housing association.
  10. That may be true for a few here, but an awful lot of people who bought houses etc haven't gained from what I'd refer to as ‘‘sound fundamentals’’ regarding the economy or the housing market either. All we've had in the UK is ever more elaborate schemes, of which not many of the bullish persuasion so-to-speak predicted to any real degree of accuracy, but more along the lines of a generic ‘‘they won't let houses crash’’ type of opinion.
  11. Nope, I live in Wiltshire now. I bought a couple of years back for sub £200k, old Swindon area.
  12. A friend bought in Tring for £230k in 2012 and sold for £360K in 2017, they made a fortune in HPI/Equity.
