    Tax and competition are two quite different things.
    Currently competition wprks well where there is some (where there's Gull etc) but not elsewhere.

    I suspect you will be camping but not by choice.
    Interesting that builders aren't supposed to drink beer or drive.

    You may need to structure the loans - split into at least 2 - one fixed and one floating to cater to the cash flow.

    From what you describe it sounds like the RCD might be at fault. This is something for an electrician to replace I'm afraid - permitted electrical work.

    I don't think this is true.
    OCR doesn't drive long rates - banks can't use OCR money (not a thing I know but ...) to lend for a 3 year term (or 2 year or 1).
    They need to borrow long to lend long...

    Demand drops, supply drops, equilibrium is reached.

    Or want to sell - the market will be more limited (investors only) than a 'normal' house.
