Dropped a pole on the neighbour's roof?

Clearly we all should have insurance via our own building insurance.
If you can't sort it with the trades ,your best action is to call your own insurance company and report a no blame claim,for them to sort with your neighbour.
I feel you need to report it to your own insurers,read your policy.
Your insurance company are best to sort this ,as they will claim on your neighbours policy anyway and you should not suffer any increase in your premiums.Even if you have an excess to pay,that will be claimed back too by your own insurance company.... Read More

View on flooring clauses in a tenancy?

you are not obliged to even provide carpets,curtains,blinds,etc .

My choice is carpet tiles now,no underlay needed and easy to fit and can be bought for around £1.50 £2.00 each !... Read More

Tenant, Neighbour, Agents and the fence?

you can face the fence any side you want.I did one on my property and was not going to pay £1200 and have the best side facing away from me.!
I have also made a fence by putting in posts(on my land)
and using gravel boards (you can get them as long as 4 metres) I leave a small gap between each board(to allow for expansion etc) next door will see the posts and you will not.The boards are screwed on from your side
Having said this no one is obliged to put up a fence
some properties have the boundary marked by small concrete posts with wire running through them.
Check the deeds to find out who's boundary it is(marked with a T on the deeds,if the T is on your property,the boundary is yours.... Read More

Can I insist on Shower rather than a bath?

who in their right mind ,would want to buy from these people.?!
I would go direct to the developer,not via the estate agent(who just want their commission) and request a shower,not a bath.
Once you explain,I am sure the developer will oblige.
If not just threaten to cancel the deal.... Read More
