    ^In that case, it's not very clear what your problem is.

    Somewhere west of Granville street I would think. Not even south Surrey would see a price like this at that lot size. North Surrey you would probably have bullet holes in your house.

    My house, which was the origin of this post, is in North Surrey (Fraser Heights) and guess what - it has no bullet holes in it!!! Nor is there a bullet hole to be seen in the houses of any of my neighbours!

    So, you're saying the assessment is actually lower than it should be since you've got a lead free home...

    Sorry Karen, my good friend lives in Surrey and we always make jokes about where each other lives. He says things about Richmond and I say stuff about Surrey.

    Living in Richmond means never having to say you're Surrey.

    I wasn't the least bit offended, new dog - I was just teasing you! And I must admit that your comment might even be true in certain parts of North Surrey!

    No, I think a 50% increase in assessed value is enough to make up for having a lead-free home!

    Hence the "lead free" moniker? At first I thought it applied to the copper plumbing in your house ..lead free solder.
