    1 looks like a combination of a fair warning with a smidgeon of surveyor arse-covering. I'd look at how good the ventilation and damp-proofing has been over time.

    The rental figures are different...

    I can't imagine a good reason for *not* giving them one, unless the HMO is in appalling condition.

  3. Facilities Requirements for 15 person HMO

    May I ask some advice as to communal facilities required for a Sui Generis HMO.

    I'd say you are making it too complicated and focus too much on furniture and fripperies.

    TVs in bedrooms were a premium feature in the 1990s. Every student in the world has had a laptop since...

    Make that a removable tow bar, or the secnodhand value will suffer.

    Barnsley East? It would be UKIP not the Tories that are 2nd this time I'd say.

    It's interesting that Labour's vote there fell from 77% in 1992 to 47% in 2010. And the majority is down from 25000...

    I have to admit I wasn't there in London in 1796 when they set up Harding, Howell & Co, but it's nice that some people remember.

    TBH that doesn't sound like a particularly serious water leak. My one claim on a water leak ended up at £8,000.

    I'd think about:

    1 - Havng a quote/getting the work done.
    2 - Informing the...

    How cheapskate are you?

    Hedgehog adds up very quickly if you buy a lot of it.

    You can use the appropriately sized plastic mesh rolls, sliced lengthways and bent into an upside down U shape.

    Yes, they asked, yes, I'm sure and no, it doesn't need an investigation. Any timber would certainly be tanalised, if there was any.

    Not sure - can this not already be done via SiPPs, and it hasn't happened very much? I'd say that as large an impact will be because parents will be investing in giving large deposits to their...

    It depends whether you mean "tenancy - time of living there" or "tenancy - length of tenancy agreement".

    The median tenancy in the PRS is something like 2 years. The mean is even longer. So - yes...

    Do you need the basement?

    I you have £50k or so, you could improve and sell off the basement and pay your mortgage off complelely.

    I'd recommend anti-bump Eurocylinders, especially in Yorkshire and it's environs.

    For keyed-alike, you will need to order them together or pay a lot next time.

    Suspect - as others say - just to do a Humidistat controlled fan off an FCU.

    You could either put the switeched FCU near the ceiling, or make it a fused unit only (as I sometimes do).

    Is that Oxford or Oxfordshire?

    If the former, you will need more luck than the Scarlet Pimpernel.

    In either case you need to speak to the local council to find out about regulations, and...
