Looking to sell up and move back to the UK

They will take an offer. Prices are coming down due to Brexit and the pandemic.

Sorry. Not for me no matter how cheap it is. I really wouldn't want to live in London.

I read recently that big developers stop house prices falling by building less when it looks like the market is heading that way :(

Mysty and ATS - I don't know if you're serious or not.
But if you are serious, there must be a huge opportunity for your expertise to exploit the wide open spaces in Scotland at the moment. People wanting to get away from urban living.
Nicola S. might not be so happy about it though.

I bet no one offers anything near that! They are having a laff!
Have you ever tried decorating, let alone modernising a Grade 1 building? It is impossible trying to deal with all the fuddi duddies in Heritage who are only happy if William of Orange were back on the throne!

If we went for 100% mortgage any idea what the monthly payments would be :lol:

But it's just a terraced house and not even end of terrace.
Drive fast, attract the Police. Drive faster, attract sponsors.

The planning system cooperates in that.

I've done a Grade II restoration so I understand where you're coming from. I also (with the help of my neighbours) managed to stop it (and a couple of dozen other homes) being bulldozed as part of a road widening project that would have only served to move an existing bottleneck half a mile closer to the town centre. The Heritage grading means nothing if enough key people find sufficient funds in their offshore numbered accounts. :roll:
