    Kitchen extractor fan installation

    Hi
    we are planning on installing a new kitchen extractor fan. Does it need its own rcd /circuit?

    Most of mine just took a spur off the back of the cooker point to a fused connection unit in the cupboard next to the hood.

      It's subject to building regulations, being in a kitchen, so the building control people or the competent persons scheme contractor should be able to tell you.

        Electrician wants to stick it on another circuit. Not sure if this is the ideal. Or if it will cause problems later.

          I have fallen through my top step in private rented home where me my partner and our 5 month old have lived for 8months. I need advice on a few things if possible?

          First is this we put together 6 months of rent in advance which the agents thought at the beggining of tenancy was up front...

          Having a wear and tear diagnosis is good for you and doesn't invalidate the landlord's safety responsibilities.

          Being ruled wear and tear means you can't be made to pay for the repairs.

          Hi, just wondered if anyone knows anything about the legal liabilities for asbestos. We own one flat in a converted block. When we refurbished our flat, we found asbestos, and had it removed professionally, and because it was notifiable, that meant the full bells and whistles treatment (and bill)...

          If it is very high risk, it is probably asbestos millboard, rather than asbestos insulation board. The latter can sometimes be removed by non-licensed contractors, although is still subject to legislation.

          Thank you - that is an interesting point about the management survey. I don't know whether it's called insulation board, probably is. I just know that it is the most dangerous stuff. Originally we all thought is was hardboard, and it was only when a sheet of it was unscrewed to do a job on a stopcock,...

          The responsible person, presumably the management company, is supposed to have carried out an asbestos management survey.

          The proposed removal method would be illegal. It must be done by a licensed contractor and any vacuum cleaner would need to have a special, high performance, filter....

          The reason we can't leave it is because we need access to the pipes and wires - work is needed on the fire alarm panel/wires, plus plumbing can't be done - there's no point waiting for a leak and then not being able to instruct a plumber. Plus the area needs re-decorating (the asbestos is damaged and...

          I think there is less of a health risk by leaving well alone than by disturbing it.

          I am a director of a resident management company. One of our directors, an ex electrical engineer , ( not registered with a competent persons scheme ) has fitted circuit boards without having them certified. He has told me we can not force residents to have them certified. My question is : how responsible...
