    This convinces any reasonably minded man to believe 80-85% HPC is just around the corner in London. Be in no doubt.

  • japanese uncle said…”This convinces any reasonably minded man to believe 80-85% HPC is just around the corner in London” – can’t disagree JU – it’s all set up for an almighty fall – eg a flat purchased for £12K (albeit 30+ years ago) being marketed for £800K – this programme is well worth watching

    Amazing that borrowing 1.5 X joint income required a half-hour grilling from the bank in 1985.

    Jon bought this one bedroomed garden flat in Acton for £32,000 in 1985. At the time, he and his wife had a joint annual income of around £20,000. Although they were borrowing less than twice that, they still had to endure a “half-hour grilling” from the bank in order to get the mortgage.
