Re: Neighbour throwing chocolates over the fence for dog to find

TThe suggesetion to call the police - what an absolute waste of police time - its NOT a police matter and no-wonder we havent enough police to stop these stabbings if you involve them over a dog.  I can completely understand your neighbour disliking yappy dogs, no matter the reason - and I didnt kno...

Re: How to split inheritance?

Its pointless speculating about what to do - the Will will state what to do. The only way it can be changed is to do a Deed of Variation and you will have to agree this if the amount you are going to get is less (or more) than what the will says. If the money goes to you both (not your children) you...

Re: Do we need a bath in our house ?!

many thanks for all your replies - ask my children ! Wow - that would set off a discussion ! But I do remember my son-in-law hating to admit he had tried a shower with his baby when he was 6 months or so and being horrified as he was so slippery they nearly had an accident ! Hence asking the question.

We HAD to approve a design before they would do building regs and engineers drawings, and now the engineers insist on beams every...

Re: Side return extension companies

Yes - I agree with belld WE have started down a package route to get the design, engineering & building regs done. Disaster. They want to finish the design before even talking to the engineer - so no options available. I dont even know if they let us talk to the engineer. Also...The building regs ar...
