Comment on: Arrears down 10,000 in a year, says CML
With political will (and some real cash from Government ) problems can be averted for homeowners - surely good news.
A pity that the largesse does not extend to tenants - think bedroom tax, hmmm, a political choice ??.
Comment on: Back from the brink
No need to be so cynical, researching things slowly leads to better information and timing is a way of taking the heat out of a situation. The "spooked investors" are the root of a genuine problem, whatever happened to the expression "as safe as houses" for the funders ? and would the government have really been so dogmatic as to let Cosmopolitan go to the wall ??. Even more worrying !.
Comment on: Cosmopolitan: the true story
Good article and discussion (for once).
The key for me is that the regulator worked with all of the parties to resolve the situation with no damage to the sector.
Robust governance and seeing the wood for the trees is what is required across the sector and most landlords appear to recognise those facts.
The person who signed the student leases or recommended them to the board of Cosmopolitan is the real concern !!.
Comment on: Adding value
The removal of S106 requirements is a disaster for people on lower incomes. Lets watch the developers profits and share prices rocket in the run up to the election where they will fund their friends in the Tory party (again).
Comment on: Barratt chief pans Miliband’s pledge
The major developers are clearly "worried" that the mood of the Country is rightly identifying them as greedy and uncaring Organisations.The developers share prices are rocketing as the Coalition has relaxed the planning system by removing the need for S106 agreements to create a short term boost to housing supply at the expense of all people on lower incomes... More of the same old Tories.
