As someone who has used various dog walkers over 20 years, you may benefit from the following advice: 1) Adequate accident and third party liability insurance is essential. 2) If you are providing accommodation you will need ...

Re: Equity release - bit grumpy brother is suggesting it

"I do think it depends on one's attitude to the equity in the property, and whose it is..." That's the point of the question, which no-one has answered. I'm not a lawyer so don't have an answer, but it tickles me to see that so many responders just use the forum to voice their opinions, rather than ...

Re: Bitey dog

The OP needs to have an awkward conversation with someone who, it would seem, treats her 4 legged pirhana as if its a cuddly little teddy bear; since it has no boundaries, no training, no socialisation, the dog is fear-aggressive or over-protective. As a minimum the dog MUST be muzzled and on a lead...

Re: Keep finding massive spiders in the bedroom!

"There must be a way that they are getting inside, but you might need help from pest control to discover it and block it if the problem continues." Not unless you make your house airtight, which might have more serious consequences. The spiders are there because there's a food source, so if you remo...

Re: Keep finding massive spiders in the bedroom!

Theyre false wolf spiders. They can bite, but arent particularly harmful to humans.

Re: Nitrous Oxide abuse and petty crime at Clapham Common

The cafe could install a wireless, motion triggered, wi-fi and night vision enabled CCTV camera. They can be setup to message someone when triggered and take real-time film or images, uploaded to a mobile phone. They're about £50, you can buy multiple camera units and some of them also have a speake...

Re: Motorists fined nearly £700,000 in three years at Wandsworth's most prolific street for bad drivers

"By law all the revenue raised must be spent on transport related services such as repairing potholes..."

Re: is there any face cream that actually works?

From the Guardian: Does the ‘foreskin facial’ mark the end of the world? Kate Beckinsale is the latest celebrity to try the treatment, which uses a serum derived from babies’ circumcised penises. Has anti-ageing finally gone too far? https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/fashion/shortcu...

Re: What DO we want on Northcote Road???

Another empty shop on the Northcote Road.  Apparently Between the Lines just packed up and left last week.   Shops close because they're not making a profit.  It always astounds me when people bemoan the fact that independant shops close and the chains move in, and if you dig a little it becomes ap...

Re: Wandsworth Resident parking permits - no renewal reminder and a parking ticket?

I paid because of the (unethical) disincentive to settle at a lower amount if you don’t appeal further - a practice that I don’t believe should be allowed! From personal experience with Wandsworth and Lambeth, if you challenge the PCN within the 14 day period then you still get the discount regardl...

what value is there preaching to the converted?

Re: Bulk shoe/boot cleaning service?

Do you have a) children or b) a butler? If not 'a' then you have time on your hands, if not 'b' then you're not posh enough so get some polish and clean them yourself.
