  7. Greetings all! I thought I’d just drop a few lines here as to my current situation, strategy and goals to see how it stacks up on this forum. Basically I will be getting into property full time from May 2019 and will be around this forum regularly for advice, encouragement and comradeship! OK, so I’ve had a nice little flat in South London since the early 90’s which has done very well value wise over the years.
