If you still can! Some bookies are refusing downbets with a timeframe longer than one rolling day at a time.

"..The number of people moving house is at its lowest level since surveyors started collecting records in 1978. There were 15.3 transactions per surveyor during the three months to the end of June, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) said. Rics said that demand from buyers remained low with many of them unable to get mortgages..." (BBC) 15.3 per quarter is barely more than one transaction a week per surveyor. "...35% more surveyors reported a fall in inquiries from buyers than a rise in June.."

RICS today issued figures showing drastically lower activity among surveyors in recent weeks. How long can LSL maintain the nonsensical pretence that survey work is compensating for falls in estate agency business?

surveying has been holding this up, key will be what the surveying results are, we know the estate agency nos will be awful. at some point they will have to make intangible writedowns as well i think.

thanks MT. yes, I've listened to the interview - he's quite an engaging character. i was interested in his comments about junior oilers where he sees significant upside (assuming you pick the right ones of course!)

nmf - He did recently describe this as an obvious short. There is I think a link a few posts back to a radio interview in which he looks at LSL and explains why he is short EDIT: It was Jono in post 71 who pointed to a radio interview with Simon Cawkwell (aka EK) and this is from post 72: Here is a transcript of what he says about LSL (starts at 14 minutes in and runs for 75 seconds) "..there are plenty of other property stocks which, one way or another, are sitting around waiting to be thumped.. ..At the moment I'm short of a little company called LSL Property. This is a really beautiful stock to be short of because err.. it's theoretically, wrong.... You go to the balance sheet and look at its trades, you now see they're going to have a dramatic drop in income, whereas their costs will be largely unchecked. Meanwhile the liabilities on the balance sheet greatly exceed tangible assetts, so the outlook for LSL seems to me to be pretty grim. Now what's interesting about this, is that the management until very recently were buying more shares. And I don't know why they did, because they must have known at the time they made these purchases that things were stacking up in a very gloomy way. I think it can only be that there's a certain class of manager who thinks that his energy alone can suspend gravity. But it's hard otherwise to explain this sort of conduct. But anyway, I think that's an interesting short.."

today Countrywide have said that they are making redundant 1500 people or 14% of their work force. as for how busy surveyors are....well last week i had the first ever drop in from a surveyor trying to drum up business as things were so dead.....it wasn t a one man band........he was from Colleys...HBOS surveying arm. if thye are struggling you can bet that LSL are too

Gloomy Outlook The U.K. housing market may not recover until 2018, derivatives contracts pegged to the HBOS home price index indicate, according to Tradition Financial Services. ``This is all about availability of credit,'' said Jim Ward, a research director at Savills Plc, the U.K. property broker that's lost 60 percent of its market value in a year. Home prices will drop between 10 percent and 25 percent by the end of 2009, he said. Other companies in the industry trying to reduce their costs include LSL Property Services Plc, operator of Britain's third-largest chain of estate agencies. It eliminated 200 jobs and closed 12 of its Your Move and Reeds Reins branches in the fourth quarter after the number of transactions fell by a third. Humberts Plc, a property-services company employing more than 700 people, agreed to sell all of its units to Mercantile Group June 11 after a slump in business. (Bloomberg.com 26 June)
