  1. I've lost count of the number of times I've had to say, "No, a judge is disinterested. You are uninterested."
  2. We're selling our house soon. We'll almost certainly go with an online estate agent. For around £400 + VAT they come out and take pictures, write descriptions etc and you get listed on Rightmove (which is all you need) and other websites too. The online agent will field calls from interested parties and arrange viewings with you. You'll have to conduct the viewings yourself (no change from High Street EAs then). Alternatively we could go with a High Steet EA. Had one out the other night, he wanted 1.75% + VAT (about £3750 for our house!). Nearly four grand to get on Rightmove! They also tried to rip me off for £399 + VAT for a HIP too. I googled the HIP provider who supplies their HIPs and they charge from £250+VAT so the EA is marking up the price / making a big commission on every HIP. Scum.
  3. I didn't say it did. I said it showed the previous asking price and the sold price. Thank you, I know how to use a computer. I've worked in IT for many years. I have Property Bee installed already, thank you. I haven't posted an ad for RM. I have merely drawn attention to a new feature of a website that virtually everyone on this forum (or indeed every potential housebuyer) uses on a regular basis. The new RM features themselves, whilst not providing any information that you couldn't collate yourself, do have the advantage of being quick and easy to access. A bit like Property Bee really. I meant what use is it? I can get all that information myself without using a firefox plugin.
  4. Rightmove has a new feature: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-value.html Only gives a limited number of properties but usefully provides a photo along with the previous asking price and sold price. Also has a market trends feature too: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-prices-in-my-area.html
  5. At work I tell all my colleagues not to give me Christmas cards. If I get one I loudly say, "Thank you very much, I shall keep it for a week and then throw it in the bin." I've been doing this for 8 years now and still some people give them to me.
  6. Are they trying to tell me that my fridge stays on unnecessarily? I thought it came on and chilled the inside until it gets to the required temperature and then switched off again. Silly me. Sounds like more Government control freakery. This is no longer funny. This Government must die.
  7. I get 57.25 mpg (averaged over 19000 miles) in my Citroen C1. I drive pretty normally and don't consciously try to save fuel). Ok, it's only got 4 seats and a small boot but even so I'd say that's pretty good.
  8. Cut this and I might as well go part-time. It makes up 10% of my take home pay. Take it away and the gap between the take home earnings from a full-time job and the earnings from working part-time and playing for tax-credits becomes that much more narrow. It I went part-time the tax and NI I pay would plummet. The Government would lose far more than it gained from this.
  9. There is no charge. Just some numbers on a screen.
  10. Oh well done! My first car was a Shove-it. It wasn't true to form though as it never broke down (until I rammed in headlong into a Ford Escort that is).
  11. In my experience they don't. A few years ago I had the pleasure of sifting through about 30 CVs from students applying for a work placement. All but two went straight in the bin as they were utter gibberish. I was genuinely horrified by the awful standard of spelling and grammar. Some of them were just random collections of incoherent words. The guy who was offered the job turned out to be a smack-head. Give him his due though, at least he got someone with a grasp of the English language to write his CV.
