  1. My partner & I were operating an independant estate agent and the knock on effect of bad management by this governement, especially procceding with HIP ( which by the way do not deliver what they were designed for) have forced us to close our doors at the end of the year as there is a very dark cloud over property prices and the stability of the economy at the moment. It all has a knock on effect. It will get a lot worse before it gets better. Posted by Saz from Peterborough

  5. The crash is still happening, however things don't always fit the conventional
  6. Here’s the bad news - we’re doomed regardless of what the bank does…
  7. No matter what they tell us No matter what they do No matter what they teach us What we believe is true Sits back in his chair and waits for the headlines tonight
  8. Germans Announce, They Think It's All Over It is now Sorry had to get that in!
  9. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7101132.stm Sorry if this has already been posted
  10. Helen Your as well placed as anyone to comment on this site!! (FTB) Just tell it as you see it
  11. Welcome. Not sure where you can get a copy “of on the treadmill”?? The only thing I could find was this http://www.abdn.ac.uk/sociology/onthetreadmill/ Can anyone else help??
  12. HPC is an Ark! Come on you’ve all seen it coming! When the floods recede we’ll send out a FTB (dove) to find a property a if it comes back with a mortgage we’ll know the land is cleansed. I’m sure we’ll also see plagues bird flu blue tongue Oh yes and we've had real floods in the UK! The HPC cult. By the way all you Lurkers well done for coming out of the shaddows, and for those of you still lurking come forward!!! Now is the Time!!! Regulars please think of some good reasons for the Lurkers to come forward. By the way looks like the people who have already come forward could really contribute to the discussions!!
  13. The way I see it your not on your own, People who I know who are bull to the core are even feeling it. E.G my friend and his wife just had another kid, need bigger house, can’t afford it because the next step on the ladder is just to far out of reach. Brother, BTL Scum sold his entire portfolio of two houses early this year as even he can see the coming disaster!! Don’t stay in the shadows! Edit - There is no ladder!
  14. Well done!! Now doesn' that feel better
  15. Big virtual round of applause for all you lurkers who have come forward They say admitting you’re a lurker is the first step. Just take it one post at a time. The rest of you lurkers come forward, HPC is like a big ship, by coming forward you will feel safe and warm when the crash comes. Mind you its already here so your feet are already wet. HURRY THERES NOT MUCH TIME!
  16. I wonder how many lurkers there are out there, Stand up and be counted! Then you can go back to your lurking ways. Seriously though I’m interested to know what the interest is in this site over and above the regular posters. Don’t care if you’re a bull or a bear just if you’re a lurker
  17. Good response!! If a tree falls in a wood and nobodys there ddoes it make a sound?
  18. To buy property what else. Now is the perfect time to buy!
  19. When you walk down the street and a gang of hoodies waving knifes about are stood in your path do you carry on walking? You don’t know what’s going to happen but you’ve got a bloody good idea its not going to be pretty Welcome and please feel free to offer a more balanced view.
  20. Simple isn’t it? By the time they cut the base rate all the banks will be in emergency loan status with the BoE at higher rates .So not high street cuts there then!
  21. Christmas 2007 – A T-shirts saying ‘Dear homeowners merry Christmas love HPC’ or a fan with some shit hitting it, and then a HPC slogan underneath Christmas 2008 – Same T-shirt with the revised famous HPC graph showing carnage! Talking of carnage, you know those adverts you get at Christmas for third world countries, we could have one showing pictures of sad BTL Mugs and that lass from the office looking sad around a second hand Christmas tree whilst the bailiffs are taking away her presents. My god another T-shirt – A buy to lets for life not just for Christmas! I love this post can you tell?
  22. Agree it's probably a lot more harder than my 1 to 10 steps but the fact remains it could be done if you wanted to. I know there are all sorts of loopholes with Ltd businesses, and think this is been done on mass. Banks have lent more and more recklessly over the past 5 years so why not exploit that? You hear of Ltd companies going under all the time and then they get bought back for a pound by the same person. Going back to my original post if there are a lot of people doing this and judging by other posts there are then there could be thousands of property sales not showing up on the land registry searches, meaning: 1. House prices could have been falling longer than we thought 2. No real shortage of properties 3. ??? anyone Excluded data The following are excluded from our figures 1. All commercial transactions 2. Before Jan 2000 - All sales below £10,000 and over £1million . (On line data for Jan 2000 onwards includes details of these sales). 3. Transfer, conveyances, assignments or leases at a premium with nominal rent which are: • ‘Right to buy’ sales at a discount • subject to a lease • subject to an existing mortgage • to effect the sale of a share in a property • by way of a gift • by way of exchange • under a Compulsory Purchase order • under a court order • to Trustees • Vesting Deeds • Transmissions or Assents • of more than one property • Leases for 7 years or less
  23. Doesn't need to does he? Just put it into administration? Can still keep the other company. Otherwise why not just stick to the first buisness plan and build sell build sell?
