None of this is a surprise. It happens in every recession.next will be house price drops.that is very predictable.
And banks won't lend any money. If banks were to keep lending ppl then the arse wouldn't fall out it. But next you know the banks will be hand in cap looking bail outs, not giving ppl loans, and still paying themselves huge bonuses no doubt. There is still a housing shortage so theoretically the demand is still there

Not surprised at all, big contractors will always look after their bottom line first just like any body else would but maybe to a lesser extent. As for property prices i would Not be surprised if rural properties hold or increase in value cos basically if anything like covid kicks off again, due to smaller populations in rural areas i would guess people would feel there's less chance of infection ?

I agree ,

let's not forget there's an awful lot of the population that don't need a job , made a lot of money over the years , many from the great lady Mrs T letting everyone on the property boom
Customer of mine just paid £1m for a pub/ hotel to renovate , just spare cash lol

Always work in the private sector if people don't move they revamp or extend , there's probably another 20 years of flattening artex to be had lol

Don't panic Mr Mannering

this is just the start with the big contractors,over coming days/weeks,this will get worse and rates will drop further for all trades,.....covid kick off again ,raggles,......listen carefully raggles and anybody else out in la la land,covid has not gone away,sadly it is going to get worse /infect and kill more people/the r value will go up/sites will again be closed/giving these big contractors the excuse to drop rates again,shocking how they are treating people

the last thing i would be putting my money into would be a pub/hotel,............pubs and hotels need the max ammount of people in just to break even,........now there will be less people going into pubs/hotels but there costs staff wages/electric/gas/buisness rates etc etc will still remain the same ,how can they possibly remain in buisness/make a profit ,when costs remain the same and indeed rise ,but with a lot less customers coming through the doors, does not make financial sense

He's converting to 5 flats and will decide to rent or sell when they're done, just saying there's a lot of money floating about , many people could do nothing for years and not notice any recession

I think they will anyhow, as this will be a game changer in that more people will work from home remotely instead of going into the office, it doesn't matter were you live for commuting.

I work for some wealthy folk, they fund projects from Cleared funds , there not in any banks pockets. We regularly render new build houses that cost 1,2 million plus, at that level there mostly above recessions, they move in different circles to the working man.
