Walsall Property – Jargon Busting Terminology (PART 1)

Walsall Property - Jargon Busting Terminology (PART 1)
Walsall Property – Jargon Busting Terminology (PART 1)

Something different this week for my blog reading friends…in recent months I have been asked on several occasions to explain certain terminology that has cropped up during Walsall property transactions or just in conversation.  For ease of reference I have gone through the list in alphabetical order; the overwhelming array of acronyms and specialist terminology in simple layperson terms.  To save the article from being endless pages I have split this into two parts with part 2 releasing soon – so watch this space!  If there is anything I may have missed please feel free to comment or get in touch.

The meaning behind the lingo…

A

Abandonment – Abandonment is when a tenant leaves the property (usually without notifying the landlord or agent) before the tenancy has ended.  Very often this occurs when the tenant owes rent and the tenant may or may not leave possessions in the property.  Although the tenant is in the wrong for many reasons, they still have a legal tenancy and can return and demand to take up residence at any time, despite not paying rent.  Taking over an abandoned property is fraught with difficulties for the landlord and specialist advice should be sought.

Advance – A mortgage loan – an additional loan is referred to as a further advance.

Adverse Credit – Used to apply to a borrower or application that has past problems with bad credit, for instance frequent late payment, breached arrangement, bankruptcy or County Court Judgement.

Is Moving Home in Walsall – ‘Mission Impossible’?

Is Moving Home in Walsall - ‘Mission Impossible?
Is Moving Home in Walsall – ‘Mission Impossible?

Moving to a larger home is something Walsall people with growing young families aspire to.  Many people in two bedroom homes move to a three-bedroom home and some even make the jump to a four-bed home.  Bigger homes, especially three-bed Walsall homes are much in demand and it can be a costly move.  However, is jumping to a 4 Bed House a step too far?

If you live in Walsall in a two-bedroom property and wish to move to a four-bedroom house in Walsall, you would need to spend on average, an additional £153,066 (or £604.61 pcm in mortgage payments (based on the UK Bank average standard variable rate)).  However, going straight to a four bed from a two-bed home is quite rare as most people jump from a two to three-bedroom home, then later in life, from a three to four-bedroom home.

What if…the UK Population lived on One Street??!!

What if…the UK Population lived on One Street??!!
What if…the UK Population lived on One Street??!!

In my line of work I meet many property entrepreneurs…from budding enthusiasts…to seasoned developers.  Meetings whether face-to-face, by phone, Skpe or email lead on to many interesting conversations some of which, I write about.  I don’t profess to have all the answers but I like reading and learning about property.

This sometimes takes me away from our local Walsall property market, to conversations about our region and the national geographic area as a whole.  My expertise is in the local area where I ‘ply’ my trade to ‘eek’ out a living.  Anyway, I thought I would share something different with you this week, my blog reading friends, which I found really interesting and entertaining at the same time…hope you do too!

If the population of the UK were condensed into just a single street, more than a third of us would live in a semi-detached house worth £207,000.
