I think she will not try to schmooze the EU (Mrs Merkel) like Cameron did and failed. I think her cautious approach is pitched about right but lets see...

@  flora : (24 October 2016 - 10:12 AM)

Think she is doing more listening than defining at the moment...

@  clint : (23 October 2016 - 06:25 PM)

Is Mrs May serious or is she trying to come up with the most stupid options she can think of?

@  flora : (20 October 2016 - 05:38 PM)

Should have said thankfully no damage. Ryanair discounting tickets but introduced admin charge for return online check-in.

Earthquake during last night, magnitude 4.4 on Greek mainland close to Corfu - felt in Lecce up to Brindisi. Plus a 3.4 in Basilicata.

Default to the schoolboy effect again - but no different to may politicians here and other locations

Think the debate is about paying taxes when being on the receiving end of constant budget/service cuts at local level from those above. Think I have this correct.

@  LMB : (29 September 2016 - 08:55 AM)

Thanks for all the advice it's been very useful. Back out in a couple of weeks to hopefully look at more properties.

@  flora : (28 September 2016 - 11:13 AM)

So if the aim is to have something habitable into the future then if it's priced competitively and you have the dosh to rebuild - get advice with a view to knocking down replacing with a new build - then tax (or resale) comes into play once habitable anyway.

@  nickandadelaide : (28 September 2016 - 10:57 AM)

I would say t's advantageous for 2 reasons, you will pay less tax because it's not habitable and you will pay less to purchase the place as you are buying a first floor deposito, not a bedroom. The agents on here can give you ball park figures for habitable space, deposito, veranda, land etc.

@  rosie A : (27 September 2016 - 02:31 PM)

Thanks, Flora

@  Admin - Colleen : (27 September 2016 - 09:52 AM)

Head height means that it is not a bedroom but will stay as storage area or whatever title is has been given. Doesn't stop you using it however as what you wish. Could be a problem when you sell in the future as regulations getting tighter and also people buying getting more particular.

@  LMB : (26 September 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Thanks flora. Unfortunately the room is on the roof so no changes can be made to the structure. Lawyer concerned that if we buy this will come up again when we want to sell. Heart over head decision!

@  flora : (26 September 2016 - 06:56 PM)

LMB we encountered this with our little store room but although happy to knock down and replace with full size we did not have enough % allowance at the time- all they could offer was dig below floorline. So will now be done within further allowance. If you have enough % allowance during renno then best to look at including an upgrade to meet height regs.
