    I do actually think Leyton might be worth a look too. I'm very very east centric so want to stay as close to Bella Vita (pizza) as possible. I know it's not news, but prices in Hackney etc are daft, nothing within my budget looks appealing, but then maybe my budget is part of the issue... Ahhhh first world problems.

    Cheers for the suggestions everyone! I'm thinking it might have to be Leytonstone or Walthamstow although worried I've nearly missed the boat already, looks like the houses everyone got for 340k are now 420k and by the time I get there even more... Clapton mark 2. Prob end up seeing you there anyway @well_is_it ! Any recommendations on nice streets in either of those areas? Might take a wee ride round both areas to get the feel...

    This role play lark is a step too far for me. I'd prob enjoy encountering people doing it but it's one step closer to having a neck beard...

    I told Foxtons I wanted to let my place out for 6 months. They said it was easier to get people in for a year, pretend they could have it for the whole year, but have a 6 month break clause and use it, kicking them out after 6 months. Dick move.

    On another note, where is everyone ending up when they are priced out of Hackney? Tempted to get a place with a garden but can't afford one locally and don't fancy going as far as Walthamstow?

    Might of asked that before.

    Foxtons are scum. Lower than low. Would not go anywhere near them. My place was on the market for a bit (rental) and I used Keatons. They are not bad. Also currels.

    Edit: should also note I got Foxtons in on my property and they said they could get more money but as they were complete cunts I decided I'd rather have less money than have myself and my tenant deal with their bullshit.

    That's mental. And sounds like a dick move from Dropbox. What's the "too old" cut off?
