  1. Too late now but a lot of the problems would be solved if there had been a law 25 years ago that prevented mortgages on any property with the exception of the primary residence. You don’t have to be rich to buy a holiday home in Cornwall these days.
  2. Sad that you are from Cornwall but never really got Cornwall. Can’t see why the Cornish would be envious of someone who vandalised their boat.
  3. Abolish for primary residence and increase for any other purchase. The market won’t increase much more now. When it falters the next big expenditure that prevents moving is EA fees. They should then be capped to say £200 to get the market moving again. Happy days.
  4. STRd in 2007 and bought again in 2009. Still in the same place. Still hoping for a HPC though as have 3 children and still wish for a HPC for their sakes.
  5. Mother Nature: So, how did you get on child. Greta Thunberg: I tried but those in power are old and stuck in their ways. Mother Nature. Mmm this is very disappointing. We will have to try a more radical approach. Corona Virus: Hold my beer.
  6. I am pleased with my 4kWp system. I have generated over 20kWh today and am still exporting over a kW now. I guess saving over the year for electricity is about £120 for us. Anything I don't use gets used by someone so I am happy. The 25 year genertion tariff was also very generous last year so the yeild is about £1800 RPI index linked pa for an investment of £12K. That does not include the saving on bills and during a pretty poor summer. Oh also have solar thermal - never will get my money back on that one!
  7. Poor little bugger can't bear to look at his mum. Why did MY mum have to be a BTL landlord why?
  8. That BBC woman must have a VI in the property market. Her body language, facial expressions and tone of voice are always biased towards a return to HPI. I find her quite annoying.
  9. Brown suffers from Megalomania. We live in dangerous times where politicians look at short term thinking in order to get re-elected or leave at least leave a mess for the party that gets elected.
  10. Brown dosn't expect to get re-elected and this recovery will be short lived as it relies on constant propping up. If he manages to get it to last until the next election, he will leave as the man who saved the economy then the tories messed it up.
  11. It was tax loophole and it's being closed. Only really affects second home owners who only let out the property for short spell to offset against tax.
  12. I sold in 2008. When I accepted an offer in mid March the property was on RM as under offer until I completed in June and then it was STC until Feb 2009 I guess they like to advertise that they sold one?
  13. There is no doubt there has been a spring bouce. Converstations with EAs have all come to the same conclusion: Those holding cash are getting little in return on savings and are putting it in property. The goverment plan of lowering interest rates has worked to some extent. As it is not really based on the economy ( which is shrinking ) this bounce will be short lived. In 6 months, people will start to wish that they had left the money in the bank. Not sure why people take this crap though. Pensions raided Wayhey! Lets buy property. Savings interest stolen Wayhey! Lets buy property.
  14. Seeing a few months of positive is no surprise. There is nothing out there would indicate that a sustained recovery is under way and the general trend will still be down. The spring of 2009 will be looked back as not a buying opportunity but a window of opportunity to sell. Still thinking the bottom will be 2013.
  15. There was a young pig called Manuel, Who started to feel unwell He sneezed on the farmer’s son Who developed influenza A virus subtype H1N1 And although 4 year old Edgar Herandez made a full recovery, …. the population of Mexico fell.
