They say the property market goes from boom to bust, let us hope this is not the case. Nationwide has just produced figures suggesting that in the last year property prices have risen by 13.4%.

PROPERTYMARK STRENGTHENS ITS BOARD ROOM TEAM

One feature of the trail was the fact that Anisi tried to bribe the upstanding letting agent to overlook the canopy of green foliage, stashed in the residence.
