Housebuilders must diversify their debt from the biggest five banks or risk shutting off access to vital capital, an analyst at KPMG has warned. More than 80pc of the listed housebuilders’ £10bn of debt is held by just five banks: RBS, Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds and Santander, and no other industry has this level of concentration.
The house, which covers 11,000 sq ft, is on a bank high above the Hudson river, and large windows overlook the 75 acres of pristine parkland that surrounds it. Simmental cattle, which the family kept, still roam on the surrounding hills. The family also kept a herd of sheep, pet raccoons, deer, four dogs and two cats, and in the garden is their pet cemetery. It is on the market for US$22 million (£16.6 million) with Houlihan Lawrence (001 914 234 0308; houlihanlawrence.com).
The cost of moving home has jumped 6pc in the last year, outstripping wage growth and inflation, according to new research by Lloyds Bank. Combining the costs of stamp duty, estate agent fees, surveyors, home removals and conveyancing, the average amount spent on moving house is £11,624. That amount shot up due to rising house prices pushing up stamp duty and other fees linked to the value of the property.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
