Property in Walsall purchased for £1k!!

At a recent family gathering my sister and I were talking about various sibling stuff when the conversation shifted to how she ended up at the property she resides at now.  It became very interesting when she brought out a folder with a plethora of information and history left by the previous owners.

Walsall property owners may be interested in knowing the property built in 1947 was purchased for £1,000 with a mortgage of £700!!

The monthly mortgage payments were £4, 4S which I have no idea how much that translates to in today’s money…however…the thought of buying property for £1k and paying a £4-5 mortgage nowadays is one of dreams.

Are all Walsall Tenant’s Needy?!

Why am I attracting these tenants?  Is this a common thing with being a Walsall landlord?’’
