Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I love the fact that my son and his Fiancée are so good with my youngest.

This week is the October holiday and my youngest was saying that he is going to be so bored and immediately my eldest son's Fiancée said that they would take him out for the day some time next week maybe the pictures then dinner.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Listen to Radio 5 Live this morning, Brian Cox was talking about the Neutron stars that collided and people submitted questions I submited the following message.

David from Harlow.

Are the Earth and Moon a binary planet?

It was only asked and answered

I was so wow'd I didn't hear the full answer, but is was a sort of IIRC, now hunting if there is a podcast.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I'm so lucky that my son and his other half listen to advice. On Monday they took me to at a flat that there friends were selling and right away alarm bells were going off in my head.

The first thing was that the flat had a factor at £70.00 pcm, then they needed to sell it for the price they paid there was to be no coming or going with the price at all, then I asked to look at the boiler which in my opinion is at least 13 years old and the final one was that they made out they were doing the kids a huge favour in leaving the washing machine etc then and only then I spoke out I asked how old is the washing machine and they could not tell us. Then I spoke out and said the reason you cannot tell us is because these were left in the flat when you bought it three years ago then I turned to the kids and said these could need replaced sooner than you think along with the boiler.

Something was just was sitting right with me about this property so once I got home I googled this address and found out that since 2006 this flat had not once made a profit so therefore I sat the kids down and explained negative equity to the kids and when they said that they were there friends I simply said there is no friends in business.

I then went on to new home deals and showed them that they could get a three bedroom (for ever home) if they went down this route. This brand new home gives them a NHBC Buildmark Warranty which gives you a 10 year structural warranty and a 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty as standard. I also explained that everything is brand new, kitchen, bathroom etc for the same payments of the 12 year old flat but there is a compromise and that would be the area plus extending there mortgage to either 30 or 35 years which only they can decide. I explained that 35 years is nothing as we took out a 25 year endowment mortgage that fell short so in the long run our mortgage ended up being just short of 35 years.

Anyway last night my son said that his so called mate is not happy with me for drawing attention to the negatives of his flat and I have one word for that tough! as I could not see one positive in them buying this flat at all only heartache and regret imo plus I been there done that and there is no way I could just sit back without explaining this to the kids I mean £70.00 pcm for a factor this £70.00 could go towards quite a few extra thousands for a better house imho so I said this. Plus hubby and I think buying a property which has not made a profit since 2006 is very worrying indeed and your only buying trouble.

I'm just so lucky that they trust our advice.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Nash I just could not let the kids do this without knowing all the facts. It is not my problem if there friend is sitting in negative equity and I do feel for this young couple and the position they find themselves in I really do but I'm dam well sure I will do everything in my power that it won't be mine in this situation.

Better they loose a friend now than still loose the friend when they realise that they have been duped and have been taken for an expensive ride.

So well done you for speaking up and well done the young couple who are willing to listen to sound advise.
