best area

Hi again, While I agree with Mack to an extent, if you look at another thread about auctioning holiday lets, it seems that SB is till the only place that most British holiday makers have heard of, so from a rental point of view (as opposed to capital appreciation) there is more of a question mark ov...

advice

Hi, I know nothing about SB having bought elsewhere, but when I chatted to various agents, it seemed obvious that unless you bought a guaranteed rental deal linked to a tour operator, it was going to be a free-for-all, even if you got yourself a dam' good letting agent. Check out rental agents, you'...

best areas?

I agree with all the above; one tip: do make sure that the Agent/s you deal with don't waste your / their time by showing you stuff you may have arranged to see with anyone else. I arranged viewings with 4 agents last year, and had 2 or 3 duplicate viewings lined up, causing last-minute re-thinks. S...

buying far from towns

...and better prospects of capital growth maybe? (flat or declining in rural France over the past 10 years or so!)

Well, Veselin, I guess that being a Bulgarian you under-estimate the attraction of village living to us over-crowded Brits! For example, at home in UK all I can call my own is just over 200m2 and I've got neighbours within a few metres either side, and over the road. Over in BG we have over 1500m2 o...

Thanks again Bri - are you saying there are B+Q's in BG? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick? I wouldn't want to take stuff out there from the UK.

damp proofing solutions

Thanks Bri - I checked the thread, very useful. Can you recall which of the DIY stores you have seen this stuff in? Or better still, the name of it? The other 'arf is now pointing out that maybe BG is less controlled as regrads nasty chemicals, and maybe we should avoid any chemical treatments (Scan...

damp proofing solutions

Hi, thanks for the replies; It's not the first time that someone has suggested the "bitumen +" treatment, now I recall years ago on a project in the UK - however, I'm reluctant to plaster over the natural look of the stone, so I'll save that one for the summer kitchen walls!
Cheers!

Damp Proofing Solutions?

I would be most interested to hear from anyone who knows of a damp-proofing solution such as Thompsons which is available in BG. We want to coat an old stone wall whose inside is permanently damp, and we intend dealing with the pointing on the outside later.

earthquakes!!!

Hi Polly, Yes, 'quakes were a bit of a bone of contention between me and my lovely fiancee when we were first looking for a place in bg as a holiday retreat. We differed as to the weight we should give to this single factor. In the end I turned down the chance of an amazing apparent bargain modern 3...
