  1. Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man who wants wealth at haste. I’ve been around for a long long year, Middle aged around the waist. Pleased to meet you. You won’t know my name, Or what property things I do But what I hope is puzzling you. Is the nature of my game …. So if the above means little to you, you are more likely to be a newbie and less interested in this blog...you may you have stopped reading already. However, if you heard music while you read, this could be of interest. It will also be worth continuing if you aspire to achieve financ

This is the only way to ensure certainty. PS I have read the Askanarchitect blog and wanted to recommend it to anyone who reads this post. On behalf of anyone who is getting benefit from your efforts but not saying so...THANX
  5. Hi... a call for advice from any wise Property Hubber.. My property strategy is buy to sell. I have purchased a very small top floor studio flat which has an attic for storage. The property is in poor condition but is perfect to be developed into a very affordable first home. I am in the process of building a reputation for bringing excellent condition, affordable properties to market. It is important that this relatively small development doesn't compromise my reputation. The property is leasehold and so I understand that if I were to get a conventional loft extension I would
