Glad yer back posting as I know where I would rather be trapped.
So many are trapped in the U.K right now.
Not many able to retire abroad right now due to the sterling and stuck here to get well and truly screwed by this government.
Many can move back here if they bought at the right time and when the exchange rate was reversed say 1.45. in say 2000 would probably have some equity if bought in a good location.
Drop the price to say the original purchase price,rent in the U.K until the prices drop by the reported 30 % and yer home and dry.
Thats if yer mad enough to come back ear.
