Land Registry sell-off plan put on hold The Guardian


The proposed £1bn sale of The Land Registry has been put on hold while ministers review responses to the Government’s consultation. This comes after the Queen’s speech in May, which outlined a neighbourhood planning bill, which would allow the privatization of The Land Registry.

The Queen’s speech in May included an outline of a neighbourhood planning bill, which the government said would enable the privatisation of the Land Registry, which keeps records on property ownership in England and Wales.

This house in Framingham, Massachusetts, is for sale and has perhaps the best 70’s decor of all time. The kitchen is zesty, the bathroom vibrant and the living room…shaggy. The home was decorated in the 70’s and has not been touched since, and it is absolutely glorious. 

This house was decorated in the early 1970s and hasn’t been touched since. It is glorious.

And it’s for sale. Although to live there, you will have to move to Framingham, Massachusetts.

Alternatively – and probably better for those who can’t handle too much visceral stimulation – you can just enjoy the orange shag-pile, the canary yellow formica worktops and the psychedelic wallpaper from afar.
