Cheap Central Coventry 2 Bed Flat

Recommended Posts

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-38355538.html?showcase=true

The BTL as a pension thread inspired me to take a look at property in my home town of Coventry. I'm seriously planning on using my cash deposit that I was planning on using for a London flat to buy a flat somewhere else outright.

I thought this was quite cheap....... untill I read the small print blurb. £300 a MONTH service charge! Is that the most expensive service charge in the UK?

The catch is that it is shared ownership i.e. 130k. Not cheap!

Jesus wept! I missed that.

Vendors have to stop listing these places with already discounted and misleading prices.

I notice that the new builds on the old GEC Marconi site are now being advertised with the new buy 20% already off the price, I bet that catches a few out.

Takes the piss doesn't it. In a stable market it might make sense to buy a cheap flat outright and be rent free to save for the next step in the ladder. But in our genius world you buy something outright only to find you're still renting it! Also in my area I found that flats are falling in price more than anything else.
