Leaving the tradespeople question aside for a moment, it seems to me that there are two types of property thread.
A) Discussion about the state of the market, experiences of agents, good places to look. Discussion is the operative word.
B) Announcements from people looking to make a specific buy/sell/rent/letting transaction. This isn't a discussion, it's a notice. It ought to be handled via the classified ads section. It's transactional, not a debate.
What I'd like views on:
if we hive off type B to the classified ads section, do people think type A merits its own forum section or is that OK mixed in with general SE1 discussion?
Or continue as at present but ban "Looking for a flat" type threads?
