I have no interest in the property just intrigued.

Apparently it is leasehold sitting on 107 years

ffs - seen loads of places that are about 50-75k cheaper due to being next to an A road but would never live by a main road. Think you have to be desperate circumstances to even consider it.

Vice have found this mad little place too - https://www.vice.com/en/article/qj84p3/one-bed-flat-caledonian-road-london-rental-opp?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm;_medium=twitter

Should probably talk about the crawlspace. “Crawlspace” is very rarely a positive word. It’s always “Body Found In Crawlspace, Remains Suspected Human”, and never “Fun Time Had In Crawlspace, Someone Bought Beers And A Disposable BBQ”. The crawlspace is an unthought of, liminal, transitional zone of a house – a funnel for drafts, a locus point for dust, an unthought of shelf of spare space that couldn’t really enhance any other room, and also electricians need it for access to a meter, so basically you just use it to heave all your luggage onto when you’re not using it (the luggage is filled with all your old clothes that you got too big for but refuse to throw out, for some reason), and that is it. The crawlspace is not an appreciated space. We do not and will never have a soft spot for the crawl space. It is always where families in horror movies keep their malformed twin.

We're flipping out current place to BTL and our new place we're renovating but the builder we want to use isn't available to August.. due to complete in May. Obviously it's fraud staying here on the BTL mortgage, but is there any way of them finding out? Else it'd mean moving in, then moving back out for 2 months.

In reality most lenders aren't bothered provided you stay up to date with the payments, you already know it is a breach of your mortgage conditions, but the chances of there being an issue are slim to none.
