    "...building built in 212, no asbestos..."
    Surprised the building's still standing, but I don't thing asbestos was often used back then...

      Who should dispose of old matters from furnished property, myself or landlord ?
      What matters are you arguing about?

        We allowed 3 dogs and were told they would be housed outside and they intended to build a kennel. This hadn’t happened,
        I'm amazed anyone still believes a tenant when they say something like this.

          At another place
          I own a flat in a building that has one number but 3 flats. Each flat has its own council tax bad.
          Agreed, Council tax bad!

            Just realised what an appropriate word 'crappy' was in this case.

              Hi, this is more of an info post that I hope will save people some time. I came across a boiler comparison tool on Warmzilla that helped me to find the right boiler by comparing them against each other. I don't have a clue about boilers so it really helped me to get an idea of what was available, hope it helps someone else.

              They also have a survey where you answer some questions about your property and they'll recommend boilers to suit the requirements.
              But what if I'm happy with my old boiler? Don't let her hear you call her that, though.

                  Quoting out of context:
                  .. notice to vacate the premises after 21 years.
                  That's quite a long notice period, even for covid times.

                      I "tested" the toilet several times after fitting and because it's one of these modern ones (concealed cistern), the flush is indeed weaker than your traditional loo. Although it seemed up to the job when i used it those times.
                      How big a 'job' did you give it?

                            I am trying to move house. We're a family of 7, 2 adults and 5 kids. The amount of places that have maximum occupancy of 5 is so disappointing.

                            I'm wondering, is there any problem with lying about how many kids we have? Would the landlord ever find out?
                            Simple. Just show up with the 3, then when they come to inspect, say you just adopted the other two.

                              today I was sticking newspaper around the large bedroom,
                              Well it's cheaper than wallpaper, but I think that's taking recycling a bit far.

                                  I'll get it off my chest - I'm fed-up of all the panic surrounding Global Warming / Climate Change.

                                  I'm more pi**ed off at the forced cost to us all - when it will mean absolutely nothing.

                                  Climate Change is real. Believe it or not, it's been happening for hundreds of millions...

                                  I refer you back to post #63.

                                  And bearing in mind your original response to that post, I'll also point out that what is truly pompous isn't anything that I've said, it's people like you who, even when called out on the fact that you have misunderstood the scientific position, refuse to...

                                  Science is such that it can accurately assess the last (lets be generous) 100 years in detail, but moreso the last 50.

                                  Prior to that, we have to view what happened across huge time periods - we cannot for instance say what happened between 1480 and 1521 with any detail at all.

                                  Posted up by BBC website this morning ( 27 Oct 2021 at 11.55 am ) , You can see a full rundown , which include:
                                  • £7 billion for areas outside of London to “level up” transport
                                  • £5 billion for health-related research and development, including towards genome sequencing and tackling health i

                                  That was another expected response.

                                  The science says we're not delaying "the inevitable", humanity's contribution to climate change is so huge that reversing it should stop the problem entirely.

                                  And, the most likely alternative view is that even if reversing the effects don't 100% correct the problem, the predicted...

                                  That's the problem I'm trying to discuss.

                                  All we are now focussing on is delaying the inevitable.

                                  The Planet is not going to heal itself - but we CAN begin to plan for what WILL happen.

                                  There's a fairly basic problem with "it's natural, let's not try and fix it, let's learn to live with it" instead as a solution.
                                  Nothing ever changes.
