54.2% of #Ilkley Voters voted to leave the EU

Friday 24th June 2016 What now for the 5849 Ilkley Landlords and Homeowners?

Property of the month for sale in #Ilkley #Yorkshire

10,135 Leeds Properties lie empty #Otley #Leeds #Yorkshire

Easy problems should have easy solutions - shouldn’t they? Problems like Otley’s housing crisis, where we have a rudimentary numerical problem of too few homes for too many people ... the answer is clearly to build more property in Otley - but that, unfortunately for those desperately seeking to purchase or let a property, takes a lot of time and huge amounts of money. So what of other solutions? Whilst at a dinner with friends...
