She's gone! :-(

Recommended Posts

Just sold my zed, bloke's coming around tomorrow with the rest of the money to take her away, already given me a deposit of £1000. I'm heartbroken, cos I have had to sell her just to pay bloody stamp duty on my first house! I feel inclined to drive it down to Westminster and just hand the bloody keys to Gordon Brown! :cry:


Anyway, the good news is I good a good price for it, and the new owner was looking around for ages to find one. He is a newly converted Z nut and will doubtless be on here soon!


And the better news is that as soon as I have saved up (ie early next summer) I will be looking for another to grace my new driveway! I have seen some really fantastic cars for sale on these forums of late, maybe I will find another one!


Back soon!

Now that sucks. Don't get me started on stamp duty. Kicks in at £120k and would originally have affected only larger/more expensive properties, but not any more... and have they increased the threshold to compensate? No! *And* it's on the total value of the house and not the amount above £120k. Who's idea was that exactly?!? And what's the point of it anyway? Feel for ya mate. This kind of thing doesn't help anybody trying to buy a house for the first time. I'm going through exactly the same thing at the moment so know how you feel.
