  1. He sounded as if he wasn't fully qualified - lots of talk about his Bar Vocational Course (BVC) none about him actually doing pupillage and qualifying as a practising barrister.
  2. I did a quick search on Rightmove for you - Chiswick plus 1/2 mile. Seem to be quite a few options: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-161...4&tr_t=rent http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-168...4&tr_t=rent http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-174...5&tr_t=rent http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-198...5&tr_t=rent http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-200...5&tr_t=rent http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-134...5&tr_t=rent And in Ealing itself, loads on rightmove!
  3. My grandmothers both ended up as widows, and both sold the family home. My paternal grandmother sold her 3 bed in Liverpool and moved to a 2 bed (with my uncle) in Eastbourne. My maternal grandmother sold her 4 bed family house, and moved down the road to a bungalow.
  4. I don't think I am - similar places weren't reducing their rents a few months ago, and comparing it to this time last year, they've not risen.
  5. Weirdly, in WC1, rents are going down, not up. 3 examples in the last week - changes from £1,500 to £1,300, from £700 to £625, and from £650 to £625. All rent per week.
  6. Depends where in central London. In WC1, property bee tells me there are 11 price reductions in the last week, and no rises.
  7. good news from the Guardian article, though: ""They own great big chunks of the new-build estates around here, particularly Park Farm," said one. "They have single-handedly pushed up prices in the new developments, buying them off-plan and renting the lot out. It's tough for first-time buyers. As soon as a suitable property for a first-time buyer comes on to the market you get three or four buy-to-let investors putting in offers. You'd like to be able to sell it to a young couple but you just can't.""
  8. That's Kidbroke, rather than Blackheath, and within an ass' roar of the relief road!
  9. I'm not at all sure about that. I'm 30, and went to a feminist, very academic girls' school. I'm now a barrister, earning a decent income, and have a long-term (10 years) partner, who is also a barrister. We have a 2 year old son. I can cook, but so can my partner. So we both do. And you don't have to deny femininity to be happy at home, and also successful and happy at work.
  10. Even by local standards, it's very pricey, though. For 65 grand less, you can get 2 beds with windows, a loo on the same floor as the bedrooms, and no corridor-like living rooms: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-167...=1&tr_t=buy Or for £30k less, another period place very close by, 2 beds, loo, windows etc: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-178...=1&tr_t=buy
  11. I don't know exactly, but I'd have thought it was more like 70 miles?
  12. Impressive reduction for quick sale.....!
  13. I have an entry for this section: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-168...=1&tr_t=buy A 1 bed flat for £325k. What do you get for that? Front door opens into living room. Living room measures 18 x 7'7, and is more like a corridor than a room. Living room leads into "double" bedroom, measuring 18'8 x 9'3 (another corridor). Look at the photos, it's clearly a corridor (-: To get to the loo, you need to go downstairs into the light-free basement, where there is a kitchen and bathroom. £325k?!
  14. I'm sure that's right. My head of chambers at weekends is kitted out in M & S stuff circa 1995, and doesn't notice anyone else's designer gear, ever.
