Just noticed that Homes Under the Hammer had a fascinating piece about a bungalow in the next street, which was built by 2 brothers who's family still runs a vintage sweet factory in Nissan Huts at the back. Excellent social history. Dion Dublin does *not* look 46.
Empty since 1985, with the most wonderful bodges. They missed that the raised gravel at the front was hiding 3 treestumps - Google Streetview would have told them that.
Before - press play and it jumps to the correct point.
An example of the type of project Mr O has just damaged. Bought for 62k, 41k spent, sold for ~125k. Nominal 22k profit. If done by small developers that will have 6k extra tax on it - 3% both ends.
