Lambs to slaughter
Blonde bint Lisa Knights, 36, a presenter at Setanta Sports, was laid off when the company went titsup last month. Her husband Nick, 41, has also resigned his job as director of water polo for the London Olympics (?). With two children and no job between them they need their assets to provide income, so are diving in to buy to let. Nick and Lisa are not fussy about the type of property - period or modern, houses or flats. Instead, it is all about price. Lisa says: 'If the price is right, the type of property or tenant doesn't matter.' The Humes have been scouting properties for months, attending auctions and researching the market online. Interest from similar buyers is on the rise, Lisa believes.
