  1. I know someone who was offered 25% of the value of the mortgage to move it somewhere else (it was an advantage mortgage) He seemed to think it was because of the very very low interest rate he is now paying ie his mortgage payment is under 40 quid a month the lowest he would be paying if he remortgaged would be around 320 quid a month, This was the reason he seemed to think he was been offered a settlement
  2. I can't find information on TDGTTS for March only April, I'd write a letter if I had info that they were telling porkies Was Philip Johnston saying that 100 were needed per estate agent shop or by the company as a whole, the reason I ask is because this agent only had 2 or 3 shops
  3. I read in the Newry Democrat that one Newry estate agency sold 14 houses in March (looked for the story on the online edition but its not there) 2 houses a week seems good going in todays market - I hope that they are telling fibs

  6. Cheers Does that mean that they are borrowing the money from somewhere immediately and we and our children and our grandchildren will be paying it back through tax? If so where are the govt getting the money in the intrim?
  7. So where are the government getting the money from to inject it into the banks? -- If they are borrowing it who are they borrowing it from? or are they rasing the money by selling Gilts? I'm confused.com
