  1. All the nukes are in the South of England. Or Scotland.
  2. Mate of mine lived in the US for a bit, he put the phone bill in the cats name. When the bill didn't get paid and they chased for the money they couldn't do anything as it wasn't in his (my mates) name.
  3. HPI to oblivion, due to this https://www.businessinsider.com/uk-granting-five-passports-a-minute-hong-kong-residents-2020-12 Until the UK residents start kicking off about it, which is never going to happen.
  4. Yep, precisely this. Some people have to realise that the world changed and they should change with it.
  5. I doubt it, they are so few that it wouldn't have any effect on house prices.
  6. The Daily Express also said this 6 days ago. They just have stupid headlines to get clicks on their website.
  7. He's laughing all the way to the bank. Still maybe he knows best time to sell and this is a portent of a crash. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/mark-carney-sells-55-m-hampstead-home-postlockdown-093131966.html Grinds my gears!!
  8. I saw one in Amsterdam last year, parked in amid all the bikes along the canal. And no,I hadn't taken any illegal substances.
  9. Just go for a rent repayment order and get your money back. https://england.shelter.org.uk/legal/housing_options/private_rented_accommodation/rent_repayment_orders
  10. First picture of the guy who arranged all the financing and deals for Spelthorne council.
  11. According to Barclays, re-purposing a shopping mall drastically reduces it's value. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/15/mall-values-could-b.html
  12. A new fraud line has been opened to report those people not being honest on their loan applications. Anyone going to turn Bertie-Smalls ? https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/oct/13/covid-crimestoppers-hotline-launches-to-catch-business-loan-fraudsters
  13. amazing. Bet they had designers in to furnish that house. I particularly like the statuette on the balcony, useful to drop on to someone if you are feeling homicidal.
  14. Didn't the floods earlier in the year get to town walls? there's no garden, although the park behind made to look like a garden in the photo, plus it looks like an office. Probably worth about 120k in my opinion.
  15. And that was what Brexit meant to most of the people who voted for it. Nothing to do with trade deals.
  16. Yes, together with Fred Goodwin. Yet in todays Guardian Gordon Brown is telling everyone how he saved the world. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/sep/15/britain-crisis-recovery-coronavirus-gordon-brown Seems to be saying that inflation is the answer - Mugabe Mark 2.
  17. It seems that this division of a building firm was looking at affordable housing and has decided there's not enough profit in it and the resources are better spent elsewhere, so the parent has folded it. Goes to show the attitude to affordable housing. https://news.commercialpeople.com/new-homebuilder-starfish-commercial-enters-liquidation-7825/
  18. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/10/always-use-the-30-30-3-rule-before-buying-a-home-during-pandemic-says-finance-real-estate-expert.html Saw this and laughed. When you think about the multiples people in the UK are buying it makes the article seem almost ridiculous.
  19. They've been saying this for at least 10 years. Boris said it as mayor and yet " But the definition of affordable housing was broadened in 2011, with the inclusion of affordable-rent housing, so the figures are not directly comparable. He also reduced the target for affordable housing in 2011 from an average of 23,300 a year to 13,200 a year." He just changed the definition of affordable - old trick
