  1. I think the thing to remember that this is a colabaration with the local police. Could the bank refuse to give you your money and refer the request to the police under the pretext that fraud was being committed because they didn't like the answers you gave to their questions??
  2. "Cashiers will have a set number of questions to ask anyone withdrawing large amounts of cash " What's a large amount £500, £2000, £10000 .........................
  3. Unbeliviable article in local rag. Bank cashiers to ask why do you want your money under the guisse of fraud safety. Coming to a town near you soon.
  4. Congrats RB !!!! Buying a house as a home if you can afford it, nothing wrong with that. Enjoy your new home Always enjoy your posts, Dont always agree with them but that is what forms healthy debate.
  5. Global stocks slid the most in three months and the euro weakened as U.S. jobless claims rose and European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said the debt crisis threatens banks. Oil slid as the International Energy Agency planned to release emergency stockpiles. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-06-23/dollar-gains-as-asia-stocks-commodities-slide-after-fed-cuts-u-s-outlook.html
  6. Talking about it on LBC radio now James Whale drive time
  7. Exactly my first thought on this story. I think they are trying to cover up the comming crash. I was listening to James Max discussing this on LBC Drive on Tuesday. Not one caller mentioned that the pulling down of boards would coinside with a influx of properties on the market. just lots of talk that boards are no longer needed as all buyers now use the internet, the boards are just a blight on the landscape.
  8. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-11288763 House prices: Surveyors expect property values to fall A bigger proportion of surveyors are expecting house prices to fall in the coming months than at any time since March last year. Some 38% more of those asked, in the survey by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics), expected prices to fall rather than rise in the next three months. They said that property values fell for the second consecutive month in August. Scotland was the only part of the UK to buck the downward trend in prices. The Rics survey has a relatively small sample size of 259 professionals, but has mirrored many of the other polls on house prices. They said that the drop in prices was the result of a combination of more sellers returning to the market but less interest from buyers. "The latest set of results suggest prices in many parts of the country may be slipping but this does appear to be encouraging hopes amongst surveyors that sales levels could begin to pick up as a result," said Rics spokesman Jeremy Leaf. "Looking forward, our price indicators are telling a mixed story which is consistent with the uncertainty hanging over the economy, the low level of interest rates and the lack of new house building."
  9. + 1 This has happened to us so many times. Big group meals for birthdays / Christmas / leaving dos / engagements whatever. Dinner conversation usually revolves around how we went first class to Dubai / Bahamas / Bardados etc or that we have upgraded our car to the new shape flash wagon with all the extras but then these same people will b*tch and moan about their share of a bill, right down to the price of starters and whether or not they had a popadom from the group plate. I find it hilarious, these people have no money that doesn't revolve around credit. Also to add to this, none of them have basic mental arithmetic skills. its always a rumage around to get the iphone out to add £4.99 starter, £11.99 main course and a £3.40 beer, then they all come up with different figures
  10. Actually it wasnt really :-) Sorry if anyone wasted their time. No mention of the housing market ( most weeks one of the Savills lot are in the office taking questions, which can be very interesting ) Todays show was only about starting up new business and the importance of the internet Apparently its a good idea to have a website, advertise via google and use social networking sites like Facebook................. No Really !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
  11. James Max talking about property in the second hour of his show starting a 6pm, always worth a listen Hes talking about burgers and unhealthy food at mo
  12. It looks to be just a standard ISP NOC / SYSadmin role. Go and work in a ISP and your skill set will soon go sky high. They are probably looking for someone that has a good understanding of most things but also can go off to google / books and work it out for themselves. You probably are underestimating your own skill set. If you sit down and think about what you do actually know, you might surprise yourself.
  13. STR = Sell to rent DYOR = do your own research google propertybee, its a plugin to show rightmove database changes
  14. Welcome If you can walk away from the sale with £600k, why not just buy a smaller house with the £600k ?????? Debt free living is priceless, especially in these uncertain times. Now is the time to pay down debt, not take more on. If your personal circumstances improve over the next 5 years or the economy improves ( which aint going to happen ), then you can rebuy then with all the money you saved from not paying a mortagage + interest.
