Yeah i've read about scarring. Fucks up the possibilty of shaving all off at a later date. No idea if that's true though.

How much do prices range from and to?

The FUE procedure won’t leave a scar. They take individual hair follicles from the back of your head and place them on the top. Once it heals, you can’t tell.

The other kind of surgery FUT is where they cut a strip from the back of you head, which leaves a scar. My hair is usually short on the side’s so I went for FUE.

Prices vary widely based on location and the reputation of the surgeon.

Lower end of the scale is a couple grand (package deals in Turkey) to around 15/20k to the top celeb places and based on how many follicles (grafts) you need

20k….jesus. Reckon i'd have to go full Savalas.

I don't see the shame in it at all. No more than having your teeth done. Be genuinely interested to see before and after photos if you go for it.

How long does it take by the way before you see the results you want? Is it immediate?

20k would be the very very top end. If you were full horse shoe with nothing on top. Mines just thinning out in the front third but it’s still pretty pricey. Fortunately a promotion just hit and it’s bonus time in a couple months.

It’s a shame that Lewis didn’t admit to having surgery. Just shows that there’s still a bit of discomfort in men talking about their hair loss.

Deposit paid and I have the surgery date. I will keep you guys posted. Been doing quite a bit of research over the last few months so feel free to PM me with any questions.

yeah the guy I know that had it done only paid like 3k. Included hotel etc. Quite interesting this whole “medical tourism” thing. Didn’t know it was a thing at all but they have specific travel agents sorting it all out

I first saw an a4 printout advertising trips to Hungary to get your teeth done maybe 15 years ago in the window of a 2nd hand taxidermy shop behind Chapel Market

Where you buying from?

I was looking at one on EBay that was located quite close to me.

Feel I need to sit on one of these rather than buying blind especially reading reviews on John Lewis which range from people raving about them to people giving them one star saying uncomfortable and not worth the money at all.

Interested to hear if any other mesh office chair recommendations. Don’t care what it looks like as long as it is comfortable as this budget ikea one I have been using is no good at all.

This could be a bargain, depending on how used the chair is

Any conveyancing solicitors here? Trying to fill in an application to redeem my rentcharge. I'm unsure if the original deed is a conveyance or registered transfer. I've looked at the land registry title under Section C and it doesn't state it. I can't tell from the original deed either as it's from 1890 and I can't read the handwriting at all…

Under the Rentcharge Act 1977 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1977/30/section/3) am I correct in thinking that all historical rentcharges are set to expire in 2037 (60 years from the act)?

We only have to pay £2 a year (no inflationary increases) but think it's worth paying the £34 to redeem the rentcharge to remove it from the land registry title. It'll make things easier when it comes to selling! and means I don't have to keep receipts for the next 17 years.

Its more likely to be a conveyance if its from the period when the property was built/originally sold, but this is obviously just a guess without looking at any of your paperwork.

Rent of that level is known as a "peppercorn" rent, if someone is still bothering collecting £2 a year off you, you should remind them they are a cunt.

Yes you are correct about the expiry, 60 years from the date of the act (1977) or 60 years from the date it first become payable, which ever is later.

Cheers. Yeah to top it off the rentcharge owner prints off little invoices and hand delivers them to each house on the street Laughing out loud I think there are 50+ odd properties being charged, so a decent yearly interest Cool but when you factor in the hassle, it's like a day rate at minimum wage Laughing out loud

When going through the contract with our solicitor we were strongly advised to pay it due to a case from 2016 where the property owner didn't bother paying the rentcharge over a period of a few years after being issued invoices/reminders and the rentcharge owner ended up registering a 99 year lease on the freehold or something.

Anyone had credit with Matchesfashion before? I've got ~£50 that expires in a few days and I can't really find anything I want. Wondering if I just buy something random and then return it, will my credit timer reset?

Hahaha that is ridiculous, its only £100 a year! Hardly worth printing 50 invoices off and then hand delivering them to every property! Most people dont even bother collecting peppercorn rents.

But your solicitor is right if the freeholder is sad enough to want to collect the £2 its better to pay it and not give him any reason to tell you you have breached any covenants. These peppercorn rents and ground rents doubling every X years has become a huge issue recently, grey area where they're amending and making the law up as they go along.
