Thanx 4 advice guys.
Well I had the surveyor round and he estimated that my flat is worth abot £150,000.
It's on the 4th floor (top floor) and is a reasonably peaceful clean block.
As I have been a council tenant for the last 5 years in it, I have the Right To Buy from the Council, and apparently will qualify for a discount of about £36,000.
Unfortunately my salary will probably not allow me to get a mortgage for that price (I am on a measely £16,700pa).
I am waiting for the council to get back to me with a final price, but am expecting the worse.
From my front balcony you can see the London Eye
, Big Ben and it is about a 10 min walk to the Elephant or London Bridge. I'm gutted but fingers crossed!
