Nazir Towers speculation

(cross posted with permission from State of the Street)

Apparently, the Nazir family is set to move into the Street. The only question is where because none of the houses are empty and there's only a couple of tiny flats available which, like all the other tiny flats, seem to have room for at least two bedrooms. You can tell from the size of the various buildings they're in that there's no way you can fit a two bedroom flat, with living area and bathroom into the space allocated. Elastic walls again. And some of the buildings, like the Kabin and the Salon/Taxi office have TWO two-bedroom flats! Madness!

But I digress.

Where will the Nazirs go? There's one house that has had a very frequent turnover ever since it was built, mainly it's been a scene of murder and mayhem and I reckon the current owners and inhabitants, Anna, Owen, Gary and Faye, will vacate when the bills mount up and the bank wants the house back. We haven't heard a lot about Owen's debt lately. He did declare bankruptcy but I don't think that related to the mortgage on the house though the bailiffs did come and remove some items but it was related to his business, I think.

I imagine that they're going to lose the house and they'll be the ones crammed into one of the tiny flats that are available, probably the one over the corner shop, and Sharif and Yasmeen will unrealistically give up whatever very nice house they currently own (much like Sunita did to move into Number 7), buy No.6 and move the whole clan in. The only other place that might be likely is a posh flat in Victoria Court seeing as only Nick seems to live there. (Is that where Carla is buying her flat?)

I think there's meant to be three bedrooms upstairs, again, somewhat unrealistically, but that's enough at least for the married couple and each of the two grandchildren. Kal can bunk in with Leanne or with his son and we're sorted. 

(And I still think Mary needs to rent a flat. I'm surprised Dev has never suggested the shop flat for her at a reduced rent considering her being his nanny and all. I believe the flat over the butcher shop (soon to be community centre) is vacant, as well. )

I don't much care where they move, but preferably as far away as possible. Out of the four of them, Alya is the only one that is bearable.

I agree with the blog 100% - always the same old, same old, elastic walls in the flats, no parking for cars until they are needed for the episode - the list goes on and on - it's about time the writers wake up and make the story at least a little bit believable - I realize that perhaps it really is not necessary for the plot line, but could they at least grant the viewers some intelligence and better memories and realize that we do remember certain aspects of the street. It really wouldn't take much and just may make veiwers want to be more involved with the episodes - whereas now we just watch for the sake of it being over - no anticipation - no looking forward to the next episode - no nada.

They could move in with Ken and Deirdre, No 1 seems to have an infinite capacity for absorbing the world and his dog in comfort.

Why does Kal live with his parents? He is a grown man with two grown children?? It never ceases to amaze me why adult children continue to live with their parents. I cannot stand the grandparents especially the mother she is a nasty piece of work, rude, overbearing awful. Kal is as dull as dishwater him and Leeanne have absolutely no chemistry whatsoever.

Dev owned a flat in Victoria Court which hasnt been mentioned since he let Tina stay there after the Tram crash. Like Sunita giving up her nice house, Andrea has chose to live in Lloyds grotty flat even though she ownes a large detached house with Neil that he has rented out to strangers? Wouldnt the Nazir family be more suited to grassmere drive where Audrey lives?

I agree, Anon 17:33. Kal's mother (can't remember her name) is nastier than Gloria. At least Gloria had a bit of humour about her.

I thought I would like Yasmeen but I don't. I find her very irritating. Alya is fine, but her brother is awful. Kal and his father are both bland, 'whatever' characters. Plenty of room for improvement! Let's hope this happens, as it looks like they're all going to be around for the foreseeable:(

Nick rents Dev's flat in Victoria Court, I believe. I would assume that after Kal's wife died, if he was still in the army at the time, his parents would have taken the children in. I like Yasmeen, she's forceful and direct but she also seems to have a kind and gracious side to her as well.

In real life the old side of the street would have been 2 bedrooms with a bathroom downstairs. It annoys me that no one lives in victoria court except nick. Theres also a few houses or ground floor flats next to roys rolls. I believe jed stone lived in one a few years ago. I think one of the worst flats has been the one that michelle, steve & ryan had. It was like an attic conversation/dolls house. It had a tiny kitchen. I hope the windasses dont lose their house, i would rather kevin give up no13. Send maddie back to the soup kitchen.

Originally , before he was romantically involved with her Owen was renting the house to Anna. What ever happened to owen's other house ? also was it not implied that Owen has some stake in Izzy's place ? How come that's never been in danger of being Repossessed?

I think Yasmeen is an unpleasant bully who only thinks about what she wants.

Doesn't anyone remember how the houses only had one big attic between them? I'm sure that's how you can cram 10 people into a little 2 bedroom house. Kind of like a clown car at the circus, lol.

What does Yasmean (get it!) have against pensioners, she's practically one herself.
And I loathe the way they do a fake family laughs, as though it's meant to be endearing, it's not.

Amanda - I was thinking the exact same thing! Yasmeen looks 60 if she's a day where does she get off telling who can and can't use the community centre? I find her to be a nasty piece of work can't stand her!
