  1. No, we didn't buy that house, it didn't even make it onto the short list of possible purchases. We bought a flat in a development of purpose built holiday properties that had an 11 month occupancy rule in the planning consent, so people couldn't live in it all the time. We were happier doing this as we felt it was a more responsible thing to do as we weren't taking a property out of the local supply and preventing local people from living in their own town.

  3. About 35 years ago my parents and I were looking to buy a small holiday home of some sort because we had a dog and it was becoming really difficult to find any holiday lets that allowed dogs. We got offered a lot of places but one stands out in my memory even after all this time. From the outside it looked like a fairly normal house, but as soon as we went inside something felt 'odd' about it, although it was a very warm summer's day the inside of the house felt cold, it wasn't just the sort of cold you get from entering an unheated room, it's difficult to explain but it was a sort of cold that could be not only felt but also sensed, it was like there was something malevolent in that house. As soon as I left the house the feeling disappeared, I mentioned what I'd felt in the house to my parents and they said that they too had felt the same thing. I didn't have that experience in any of the other properties we looked at and I've never had a similar experience since.
  4. Welcome aboard the forum. Pull up a cushion, or a chair if sitting on the floor is not your thing, and make yourself at home.
  5. Quite correct. It's the years of experience that go into knowing where to whack that you're paying for.
  6. About 20 years ago we had this huge monitor that often switched itself off, we found that a swift WHACK on the right hand side woke it up again.
  7. I think it's one of those questions that we're better off not knowing the answer to.
