    Looking for house to rent in Essex (odd post I know)

    Hi all, Our landlord died and his son wants to sell his house. We can't afford to buy it at the moment so need to find another place. If anyone knows a private landlord that is looking for professional working tenants in the south Essex area do let me know.

    Moved house to get a bigger/better garage for your car?

    And I don't mean staying put and building one which I guess is much more common. I'm seriously having trouble finding a place with a garage wide enough to take an S-class. So it's a move for sure, thus "garage" is my #1 search keyword on Zoopla as well as prefixes like large, wide - but not...

    Any MOT testers in the house?

    Rampant house price inflation

    What's going on in your area? Our little Close in Surrey has gone beserk in the last 12 months. Our neighbours house has just sold for an absurd amount of money which (as long as it completes) will mean we've had a 30% increase in house prices in 12 months in our Road based on actual sales...

    House sale clapses after 15 months

    House purchase clapses after 15 months As it says. I am a cash buyer. They were buying non-chain houses. Nothing could convince them to progress at all. Now fell through. Very depressing after 15 months.

    New house build

    I happened to briefly mention on another thread (about a potential incoming E63) that I'm (trying!) to fund a new build that I've mostly designed and, to my disappointment, there was more interest in the house than the car :wall bash: What is this place!?!.....a car forum or cowboy builders? :D...
