Well they're mostly in rough areas where you wouldn't leave a car that you owned or had any insurance liability for.

Lots of investor only.

Isn't it illegal to specifically advertise for a select group of people?

ie: Discrimination Law?

"Investors ONLY"

"Over 55's ONLY"

"Landlords ONLY"

It makes you wonder if this has ever been challenged? Maybe someone here could enlighten?

Over '55s only would be illegal since introduction of Age Discrimination Regulations.

Legally (as a general proposition) you are allowed to discriminate as unfairly as you like in any aspect of life as long as it isn't specifically prohibited by law.

So, "no redheads", "no dogs", "nobody over 5'11" is OK

"no blacks", "no women", "no gays" - will be very expensive! (but usually lucrative for me, for reasons probably pretty obvious :P ).

"Investors only" because the vendors want to get rid of the property without hassle. Type of investor interested in this sort of rubbish property probably knows what he or she is doing and is a cash buyer or will not be seeking (and failing to get) some silly 90% BTL mortgage.

How can building societies offer better rates to the over fifties?

Unless of course you are talking about an age restricted property. Retirement Homes and some flat conversions where there is no parking normally.

And of course "no dogs" is dodgy too, as it may be a guide dog and then you are discriminating again!

Investors only because the properties are being sold with the tenant in situ... so you couldn't get a residential mortgage, and you couldn't live their either - because there is a tenant!

And because anyone having to get a mortgage on the maisonette would probably discover it's due for renovation which means 20-30k cash from the owners.

And some tenancies can't have the rent put up...

Is it discrimination if I say my house is for sale only to people who are prepared to pay £500,000 (about twice its actual value)!

:lol: Hmmmmmmmmm....

On one view, that would be positive discrimination in favour of idiots, which is legal.

But that would just lump you in with the bulk of vendors sitting in a property which has already been in the estate agent's window for 8 months, yet with no intention of dropping the price because £500,000 "it what its worth". Which would make you an idiot too...

So (excluding you conifer, as you are just making a funny post) that would make it an idiot homeowner discriminating in favour of an idiot purchaser but discriminating against all rational customers.

Not illegal - just deserts!
