    I notice in the comments on the dm piece that the panels are more likely to be solar thermal rather than pv, which would seem more likely. It would make them greener, but 4 pv panels might have been a better idea, for a similar cost.

      Could anybody recommend a good extractor fan?

      I'm looking for something great quality and long lasting. I don't care if it's pretty, super quiet, etc.
      Something pretty common would be good as well so I'm sure any electrician will be able to fit it easily.

      This is the...

      I have one of these in my bathroom - not silent, but quiet enough.
      I've found that they vary from box to box, though....

      Hello. I'm a new BtL landlord and have just bought an upper flat with two bedrooms, one in the attic. The conversion is very old and there is no paperwork associated with it. It has been let out for 30 years previously and is very tired, so I intend to freshen it up, put double glazing in and let it...

      of course it matters who owns the windows as a matter of principle - if they fell out and injured someone, who holds the liability? chances of it happening ...... in reality, next to none. so in your case it seems it isn't an issue, but I have two flats in a block of LA flats. the lease states they...

      In Newcastle and the surrounding parts, it is perfectly normal. It is not a flying freehold, it is a criss-cross arrangement most popularly associated with 'Tyneside Flats'....

      A flying freehold doesn't seem to be a good position to be in for a residential flat.

      We've got a family in a 3 bed mid-terrace 1930s brick and tile house and prior to them moving in a year ago, we did quite a bit of work on the property including remedying some damp issues (not major) a complete replaster and redecoration. It was mint when the family moved in.

      A year...

      Of course, you only had the tops of the walls plastered?

      Area has trees front and back so we get gutters done every year. The dust isn't just upstairs either. It's appeared to a lesser extent downstairs. The plaster is my bet. It was all done by the same plasterer and he was a different plasterer to the one we used for the other properties we've refurbished...

      Hi. Thanks for the input. With these flats they are criss cross freeholder / leaseholder. The bottom flat has the freehold to the top one and I will own the freehold to the bottom one. So technically the bottom flat is responsible for looking after the bit that keeps up my flat and I am responsible...
