This Is Money: How a child benefit form can lose you state pension?
Child benefit and state pension - It’s not the most obvious link. But if you are a parent who is looking after a child instead of working, you need to register for child benefit in order to build up your entitlement in retirement age. Austerity swept away the universal child benefit and those households where one parent earns more than £50,000 have to start giving it back until it is removed altogether above £60,000. Unsurprisingly, many who fall into this bracket simply opt not to take it and see no point in registering. Unfortunately, mums and dads who stopped work to look after children are now finding they’ve missed building up their state pension. It should be easy to fix, but HMRC and the government have been stalling parents affected. That’s why This is Money has started a campaign to get this mess fixed, before it gets any worse. On this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss how this all happened and why it matters to not just those affected. And finally, can you really have a weekend away in Europe, flights and a decent hotel for £57? Yes you can, thanks to a very clever new website we tracked down.

Inside Property: The Work of Landlord Associations
Richard Blanco asks Douglas Haig, Vice Chair of the Residential Landlords Association and Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of the National Landlords Association about the work of landlord associations; whether they can be legitimately seen as the voice of landlords; how their offer supports the landlord community; and why campaigns to prevent – and now roll back – recent tax changes have been thwarted. Also joining the debate is Vanessa Warwick, landlord and founder of propertytribes.com, who outlines the role she sees for digital platforms. What role might these organisations play as the government tries to professionalise and regulate the sector, should landlord associations merge to give them more clout, and is it fair to criticise web portals as a forum for ranting?

The stratospheric rise of Purplebricks
It's the AIM-listed company with what's been described as a 'stratospheric' valuation. Purplebricks is a new breed of estate agent with an online focus. It made headlines when it raised almost £50mil in around 24 hours last week to fund a US expansion. It's now valued in the region of £647mil - close to the major players Countrywide and Foxtons. So what's behind the rise? Share Radio's Peta Fuller reports.

CEO of eMoov, Russell Quirk gives his property predictions for 2017.
UK house prices will continue to rise in 2017 but at a much slower rate, according to research from the Halifax. Britain's biggest mortgage lender said annual house price growth would be running at between 1% and 4% by the end of the year. That compared with an average of 10% in March 2016. Halifax attributed the forecast to a "higher than normal degree of uncertainty" about the economy in 2017, linked to the recent fall in sterling. To discuss the predictions Sue Dougan was joined by CEO of eMoov, Russell Quirk.

This is Money: Spreading the Jam
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. This week of course the top financial story was Philip Hammond’s first, and indeed last, Autumn Statement. Just what state are the country’s post-Brexit finances in, and crucially what would the Chancellor offer to help his much referenced ‘Jams’? In the end those ‘just about managing’ certainly received a few headline policies but with predictions pointing towards low growth, high borrowing and high inflation many argue Jam spending has been spread too thin. There were also some losers with those enjoying salary sacrifice perks and letting agents coming into the crosshairs, as well as in fact the Autumn Statement itself which will now be scrapped. So what will all this mean for the pound in your pocket? Georgie Frost joins editor Simon Lambert and reporter Becky Rutt to answer just that. Also on the agenda this week they discuss Black Friday and for a slightly different purchase the opportunity to buy a road legal Formula 1 car. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Meanwhile, a Pensions Roadblock is what we're calling people scared off from trying to get their nest egg in order. Is it just a bit complicated, or totally hopeless?

This is Money: The Only Way Is Essex
Once again, it's time for This is Money, in partnership with NS&I. This week, Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce from the Financial Website of The Year team up with Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost, to boldly proclaim the dust settled on post-Brexit Britain. Well, sort of. With pre-Brexit employment figures, and post-Brexit CPI and RPI all out, a lot of people might be unhappy with the results. Not least as Current Accounts and Annuities are slashed, and pensions deficits and house prices continue to soar. Are we in a bit of a slump, or is this just the landscape now? We'll take you through it all, and also take a look at thousands of electricity customers being over-billed due to an Imperial legacy, and Lee Boyce waxes lyrical on the joys of living at the seaside. This is Money is presented in partnership with NS&I.
