  1. STRTS – Sold to Rent to Squat 2002 – je ne regrette rien. Being a bit of a doom monger at heart (aka uberbear) my gutometer told me: the prevailing HPI was insane. I found owning a house a nightmare prison. Having previously travelled a lot, suddenly I was faced with an overwhelming stream of bills and taxes, fights with crooked lawyers and freeholders, half-baked council &c ad infinitum…it’s as if I’d volunteered to be experimented upon by aliens, have various tubes shoved in every available orifice, mostly up the battenburg, that then greedily sucked every penny and drop of blood and op
  2. If you get out of Ipswich (always a good idea), further north towards Norfolk border, the market for both sellers and landlords is still very strong indeed. Still alot of life in the boom bugger.
  3. hmm....ever heard of 'pockets'? Wonderful idea! History of the Pocket: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A798159

  6. Quite surprised that of all new detached houses in UK, 25% are self built. Approx 12% generally each year. Just back from Puglia (Heal of Italy) where you can buy 2hectares of land with hundreds of olive and fruit trees, a 'trullo' - planning permission a piece of p1ss...but what would one do? As Churchill said: KBO (Keep buggering On) ...for 40,000 euro I meant to add
  7. Curious to know if anyone may be considering this option. ...reckon I could build Rome several times over before a HPC occurs...
  8. I, for one, have had enough. STS (Sold to Squat) 2002. Underestimated HPI and have run out of patience. Leaving the sinking ship. Italy, maybe...lovely grub and the natives are friendly, (unless you're Albanian ). I'll miss London, but will return when, and if, the nonsense stops Good luck & keep your udders out of this cold weather!
  9. Germany seems to be the best deal for property at the moment in Europe - so why aren't ppl buying there?
  10. Keep sending in the complaints Don't believe they need very many to take notice ...so they say

  12. Been in the Kennington area for the last few 4 months...can't help noticing that all the EAs are ALWAYS empty. Poked my head in one of them - there has been a 1bd flat advertised in the windowfor 172k for last 4 mths - "Sold" he says. Sign still hasn't moved... Nothing to be found on nethouseprice I shall return to looking at the kettle boil.......
  13. Interesting poll, Sledgehead, but I wonder just how many people who've minted it in this property boom would convert their wad into equities, a gamble at the best of times in these uncertain times. If you know what you're doing, fine, otherwise it's safer options - IngDirect &c Has a new breed of canny speculator been born as a result of what Kirsty calls "this craazzzzy market"? Probably have to wait and see....
  14. Gavin Good post! Agree with all of the above. You presented the issues very well indeed. It's a start - London Tonight - but it's hardly a quality news platform, is it. I'm not sure what would be gained from a proper debate with the tiresome moo, except for seeing her make a thorough fool of herself again. Next stop Newsnight with some heavy weight economists ? Keep up the pressure FN
