  • Nothing, because I'm fair and reasonable.

    I just thought this thread was for bitching about neighbours! ;)

  • I don't see a problem, just pay it and quit bitching about it!!!! 🤪

  • No this is the thread for humble bragging about a house in London and the cost of some crazy extension you want to build or the problems associated with moving to a new house that is even more valuable.

    Or asking about what colour carpets to get.

  • Carpet!? Paint maybe, carpets aren't very in are they?

    My carpets are the attractively named 'Cement' shade.

  • Neighbours is bastard neighbours.

  • Carpets are on the way back.
    Like a comet.

  • shork.

  • Bugger.

    Apologies for cluttering up your first world problems thread.

    Back to normal service.

  • No this is the thread for humble bragging about a house in London and the cost of some crazy extension you want to build or the problems associated with moving to a new house that is even more valuable.

    On that note. Just accepted an offer on mine.
    Not the worst timing/birthday present.

    Now just to find an expensive pile of London bricks that I want to live inside instead.

  • Pay the 240 in a years time

  • When I was looking I found that to get the equivalent quality bagless as bagged you were paying a fair few hundred quid more. So I just got a Miele.

  • Very possibly. Annoyingly it's the one we've liked by far the best out of all we've seen.

  • Bags are really handy.

    Instead of having to get all the crud out of some plastic cylindrical thing, and wash filters and generally make a mess after you've just cleaned up a mess, you just take out the bag and put a new one in. So easy!

  • Now that's the kind of answer I was looking for! ha

  • Sorry but that's just an unecessary waste of produce to save you getting your hands dirty.
    Emptying it in your exterior waste bin is simple enough.

  • Is there vacuum thread? Hopefully not.

  • We compensate by only hoovering once a month.

  • That sucks.
    Any opposition to the extension from other neighbours?

  • I'm with @danstuff on the costs issue. You said you'd pay their costs, those are their costs. There is just no relevant analogy to a professional engagement regarding invoices as those would have terms attached, which you didn't outline. If you don't like what's come about then I'm afraid that's on you for not being more explicit in your agreement. Eg. "I'll pay your costs, but if you could just let me know beforehand who you're using and how much they're charging, I'd appreciate it". If it were me, I'd stump up and mark it down as a lesson learned. Never assume someone else will conduct themselves in the same manner as you would or would expect.

    For cordless vacuums, the Vax Blade 2 Max is cheaper than the Shark and is compatible with fucktons of Vax attachments. Also, 40V is a lot of volts moar than the shark. Don't let @greenhell convince you otherwise just cos he bought the wrong hoover.

  • Quite agree. My upstairs neighbour’s builders put a foot through my bathroom ceiling nearly three years ago . Due to the mess and disruption of sorting it all out I’ve only just got it fixed, as I have been doing some other decorating / plastering work at the same time. I’ll ask for payment next week and that’s totally fine- he’s agreed he was responsible and he doesn’t care in the slightest that it’s taken this long.

  • Shrak is king of hoovoos n e fule no dat!

    Also, a member of this parish works for their product development department.

    Buy cheap, but twice.
