Thanks for your comments Claire,
but i think you missed the point, the point was that vivas chairman, by posting on the forum, was informative and intelligent and ,on the face of it, trying to shake up a stagnant market, whether he has other motives remains to be seen but should he be excluded he is , after all one of the big boys, should he take his pro rata of flak??
and as for not having learnt anything ha i feel much better informed than ever. we looked at properties a few years ago with Intereality (lucky escape) and were very interested in buying but took a step back.
i appreciate your top tips but as i have already stated, on several occasions, i have no interest in buying off-plan
