    channel 4 news bit on foxtons (and one or two other agents) this evening - not very complimentary...

    mainly seems to be news since it's now landlords claiming they are being ripped off.

    Although one or two tenants' viewpoints as well, and some pictures of the brixton office as it was 'remodelled' a month or so back - C4 will probably put up a video chunk some time in the next day or so

    Given the staff are working 60 hours a week plus alternate weekends, I'm not convinced that Foxton's are meeting minimum wage levels if the basic salary is £10k per annum for many of them.

    £773/sq ft.

    Suggests prices are stabilising despite the much-vaunted election bounce.

    One can only hope that Osborne's surprise attack on buy-to-letters and non-doms will see prices actually fall.

    How weird. I checked the map for Elm Park and spotted Leander Rd close by. All this time, I've thought of Landor Rd, not Leander Rd, every time I've seen leanderman's nick :facepalm:

    Seems rather expensive for what looks like a pretty standard house.

    Luxury flats are so last year.

    We have now joined the world of 'boutique collections' and 'lateral apartments'.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    It means an apartment where the sale price knocks you sideways.

    They are a response to the housing we have in London which is a legacy of the anti-socialistic tendencies intrinsic to the English. They insist on having their own front door so we end up with terraces of tall narrow houses instead of apartment buildings as is normal in the cities of culturally superior nations such as those on the continent or to take a random example Scotland.

    These houses become particularly inefficient when they are split into flats vertically, so as that article explains if there is a possibility to run apartments horizontally it's often the best solution.
