Tiny Ex-mod Place, Anyone?

People camping out in the hope of buying former military homes in Hereford will find out on Friday if their wait has been successful.

The 21 former Ministry of Defence homes have two bedrooms and will cost £119,000 each.

First-time buyer Fiona Yule said Hereford and the surrounding areas were too expensive for her and her partner.

David Fleming, Halifax sales agent, said the properties were being sold on a first-come, first served basis.

Ms Yule said: "I'm an office administrator, I work for a local company, and my partner works for a supermarket.

"We wouldn't be able to afford a two-bedroomed house normally."

Ron Barber, who has been camping out in the queue for his son, a prison officer, said it was the only chance of finding somewhere for him and his young family to live.

"He hasn't been able to find a house that he can afford because his prison wages just aren't high enough."

Given that you now have to pay premium prices for places worse than most council houses, why work? :rolleyes:

Given today's turmoil with NR et al, if they camp out for another 7 days they might get to the point where their tents are worth the same as the MOD house :lol::lol::lol:
