    Picking a Constituency

    Are there any rules about who can stand where other than paying your deposit? I know that people can be parachuted into constituencies to win safe seats, but it seems odd that say Paul Nuttal can contest Stoke and now Boston within in a few months. Are there any rules about living in the area...

    Received a letter from my old landlord saying I wouldn't be receiving any of my previous deposit back, I'm not a bad tenant at all however I knew I would be charged for some minor repairs and redecorating as quite frankly I was too lazy to paint a flat I was leaving, however on this letter, it...

    Home Loan questions

    Been 8 years since I had any involvement in the UK mortgage industry and I know the whole industry has changed quite a bit since then, so wonder if anyone working in it (maybe as a broker) could answer my questions? We still own our home in Westcliff which is rented out, I figure about 50-60%...

    Sainsburys Loan - at what cost?

    Interesting that whilst Roots Hall Limited are borrowing funds from Sainsburys, the security placed is the "blocked" bank accounts in the name of SUFC, and held by / property of SUFC, being the Season Ticket Sales Account, League Payments Account, and the Deposit Moneys. :Naps:

    Buying a house in the current climate

    Her Zoners, wondered what you reckoned to this dilemma. The girlfriend and I have, after 5 years or so of hard saving, raised our 15% deposit needed to get us on the housing ladder / snake. Our income has been approved too, so we are basically free to go off and buy somewhere around London for...

    I'd quite like to buy a flat with my girlfriend, but it's (almost) literally impossib

    Having watched house and flat prices soar now for about 15 years, I kinda always suspected they'd have to come down again at some point. And indeed they have of late. Yet STILL it's practically a dream for a first time buyer. Having had a chat with a financial advisor, we've got a few options...
