  1. Yesterday I received an email from my union about the high cost of housing and how it impacts members. I thought this might go down well here. Or maybe not. https://housingripoff.org/ A very good point but Unison doesn't appear to have considered all the money from questionnable sources that is pumped into housing, as well as the Government props. There's a calculator that tells you how long it will take for you to save up for a deposit on the average home. It does generalise a bit eg: saving10% of take home pay from scratch. In my case it will take me 19.5 years for me to sa
  2. Hello all, I'd like to share with you this great documentary produced by the same people who created "princess of the yen". It's a self funded video, and its free to watch. I'm not affiliated to the makers, I'm just a fan. All the makers ask is that if you like the video you share it around with friends and family, as they are getting reports the video is getting shaddowbanned in certain countries. This documentary explains how our politicians created the non dom hidden finance system to shore up the pound, and how this system ate away our factories and pumped up housing assets.
  3. I don't vist too often nowadays but I see that dead links are still a thing on the home page! https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/feb/12/uk-tenants-paid-record-50bn-in-rents-in-2017 for anyone who was interested in reading this article!
  4. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36181318 'Bank of mum and dad' lends £5bn a year in UK, says L&G Lending from parents to help their children get on the UK property ladder will amount to £5bn in 2016, according to data from Legal & General (L&G). L&G says it means the so-called Bank of Mum and Dad will help to finance 25% of all UK mortgage transactions this year - at an average amount of £17,500. If this lending prowess was combined into a formal business, it would be a top 10 UK mortgage lender, adds L&G. But it warns this method of lending is coming under increasi
  5. I wanted to ask the members why [in the UK] do we need EA's. After 10 years of privately renting, all through EA's, I do not actually know what t entails to be an estate agent. Do they need a degree or qualification? Are there standards for them to follow? What amount of legal paperwork do they have to do for a sale, or rental? What are they being paid by owners who want to rent or sell? Some EA's I've come across have been alight, but most have been awful. Entitled and arrogant, they think they are making you a favour when showing you a properteeh. I've started to suspect, being an EA is no
  6. There's been an increase in wealthy households - thank God for trickle down wealth and Help to Buy !
  7. http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/oct/16/labour-plan-help-local-people-housing-ladder In the wake of UKIP's recent success Labour suddenly remembers how important it is to work for existing British Citizens who can vote -not against them. Seems like a promising idea to me. And if Labour doesn't win power next year then it will be a good one for another party to steal!
  8. Now nicely decanted of all its social tenants, the legendary Balfron Tower is now undergoing death by Wayne Hemingway 'pop up' exhibition before it is marketed to Canary Wharf bankers and overseas investors. http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/architecture-design-blog/2014/sep/26/wayne-hemingways-pop-up-plan-sounds-the-death-knell-for-the-legendary-balfron-tower
  9. 'Richard Bilton meets families forced out of their homes by landlords, and asks whether or not the government's reliance on the rental sector is placing people at risk.' It's only half an hour, so not expecting much. And Mr B is away, or I'd be betting him ten quid now that there will be no mention of the preferential tax treatment of BTLers.
