    AO were pretty picky when I used them for installation. The fitters have to take photos of the work so there's no not following the rules allowed.

    Cheers, looks decent and the TRVs seem a little cheaper.

    Although having looked at a few installation guides I think I need to open up my existing thermostat and see what's in there as it seems most of these need mains power at that point and I'm not sure if I have that.

    Cheers, that's something to look into. It's a variety of services and standalone programs that I want to redirect so I suspect I may have to do some testing.

    Cheers @TW I think I see how that works but a bit of googling doesn't throw up how to make it work with a commercial VPN provider. Is this only an option if it's a VPN server you've set up yourself?

    I may just go back to my old plan of using a Raspberry Pi with the software and a VPN installed on it for what I need.

    Is the £5k for bathrooms including suite, etc or on top?

    Once the solicitor's start talking then the main use for the estate agent is just keeping you updated on the other bits of the chain. You can't (legally, or just generally in my experience) rely on what the estate agent's are saying so ultimately everything needs to go through the solicitor.

    My solicitor didn't speak to the estate agents at all and that didn't cause any issues for me. (The estate agents bitched and moaned about it but without any good reason).

    tl:dr Pick a good solicitor, someone who is easy to get hold of and can answer your questions and progresses things quickly. That probably isn't the one recommended by your estate agent.

    Rumours of American venture capitalists buying Burnley. Can't say I'm that keen.

    As I'm a Hertz Gold member or something they always try to upgrade me when I hire cars in the US. They look at me in total confusion when I explain that I want to stick with the Fiesta or Yaris rather than the massive pickup they've upgraded me to.
