    It's based upon what the bank thinks it is worth. Which is likely closely related to what you are paying for it and what similar properties in the area have sold for.

    This is what has kept the British economy going for years. Go ahead and splurge on a round the world trip in five star hotels, a classic car (or four) or on your kids uni fees. It's your patriotic duty...

    [Not intended to be a pot shot at you, rather at the system that rewards house price inflation and seems incapable of paying people decent wages for honest hard work]

    He gave himself 15 chances to win and took one. A better return than most in the peleton.

    Any consensus on how much time froome is going to ding the rest of the gc for in the TT this week?

    I recall before the TT that concluded the tdf someone posted some calculations showing froome would take time from bardet etc that proved quite accurate. Anything like that doing the rounds this time?

    Estate agents work for the sellers. Most of whom want top whack for their property. The whole system lacks transparency opening it up to underhand tactics.

    The warning here is to think about what this reveals about the seller. Is this the kind of person who will they try and raise the price again right at the moment of exchange?
    Your sister should think through how she would respond in such a situation and what her relative bargaining power is. Could she credibly walk away from the sale (would she become homeless?), does the seller need to complete as part of an onward chain etc.

    Great riding from samuli. To go from 41st to 15th place shows great planning, perseverance and guts. Bravo.

    I hope he doesn't screw us all over and selfishly stand around taking pictures and enjoying the view from the summit before the descent to the finish. Only a real scumbag would do that after all we've been through.

    Looks like he is going to finish just before it gets dark. Incredible effort by a world class athlete.
