Crossrail turmoil

Hi Susan

I think crossrail will have a positive impact for property prices, maybe not immediately upon the system becoming operational.

Would you consider keeping your current house and raising equity on it to start BTL?

As this is your home you may be moving for other reasons as well as releasing equity, so there could be plenty to weigh up.... Read More

Deposit stolen by agent and I do not want to renew AST

Hi Sukhy

Very sorry to hear about your problem, and I agree with Neil that it would be worth taking legal advice.

I am intrigued though, if the agent deposited the money with a deposit scheme how did he run off with it? Also, was the agent part of any redress scheme?

I hope everything works out soon
