Millions of pounds in property wealth destroyed overnight

Recommended Posts


Romanian builder goes on the rampage in Hertfordshire with digger, tearing apart new build homes apparently worth 800K a piece (not that they look it).

"He was allegedly laughing and taking pictures as he wreaked havoc on the homes".

A handful of boomers are no doubt having to put their moving plans on hold while awaiting repairs.  If I paid four fifths of a million for a detached house I'd want more than two meters separating me from my neighbours either side.

Is that right, one pays £800,000 for a new house and it is still timber framed, ply board, breeze blocks, tin foil and a few real bricks for window dressing?

It is the land that costs £785,000......decided to c̶a̶s̶h̶  crash it in.;)

Good grief, I hope they have more bacofoil and plywood in stock at the local B&Q. The design is a slight improvement on the bungaloids of the 60s and 70s but really, 800, 000 😕

To be honest, he did not destroyed 800k a house, he destroyed 100k, the 700k left is the land it sits on

You've got it. The kingspan/celotex probably cost more than the ply and bricks put together

When I saw the headline on the story I wondered HOW you could destroy a house with just a digger.  Then I saw the houses.  I think he did the potential owners a massive favour there, those houses were shockingly poor.  

To be fair I imagine you could do a far amount of damage to just about any house from any time short of a castle by whacking it with a digger.

Agree that they look shockingly rubbish though, but are any newbuilds much different? It's called "progress".
