From an Austrian economics perspective, there are some shotgun and beans moments
In a nutshell it criticises the Keynesian approach since 2008 as having simply inefficiently directed funds to blowing up massive bubbles which are gonna go pop.

If they are right, then it`ll be one hell of a bang. They claim Bernanke has blown up as big a bubble as Greenspan

I haven't linked the second part as a lot of it is sales basically. So that is a catch with this podcast

Dry Rot

Have gone sale agreed recently and survey has shown up dry rot (and rising damp, but that seems to be less of a problem). I haven't got the report yet, but surveyor said over the phone that it was one of the worst cases he had seen.

Has anyone any experience in dealing with this? Obviously depends upon the extent, etc., but is it a case of walk away once you hear those words?

It will provide scope for renegotiation, but it seems to me that I would have to take a huge chance, given likely inability to perform opening-up works to identify the full extent of it.

A pro or con??

Saw a house yesterday, semi d however the front door was on the inside rather than the more traditional outside. Obviously means sitting & dinning room and two largest bedrooms are on the outside, hall, landing, utility and small bedroom on the inside. I can see one pro, less noise and one con, more external walls so harder to heat. Is circa 1990 block build with a current c2 ber.

Any other pros or cons to consider?

Do Estate Agents have to tell potential buyers about bids?

Yesterday I bid on a house for 20% under asking price.

The estate agent said it's a bit low but he would register my bid anyway. I didn't get any email notification that my bid was registered so I rang again and asked what was going on. Another person answered and she said my bid has been fully registered but the seller is looking for the asking price and they usually don't send email notifications to confirm bids have been registered - is this true?

I went to view the property today and the EA was there telling potential buyers that there is no bids in yet. He was obviously lying because I bid yesterday - is this illegal? I thought they have to inform potential buyers of any bids.
