    All rental properties by law should have one fitted, testing and working, IIRC

    Oh, has that been law for long? I've always had my own in rental properties. One or two places had fire blankets in the kitchen but none had extinguishers.

    Accessing the pin is very much non-scary. Loosen the metal band under the plastic bit and the plastic bit just lifts off. Check pin goes up and down ok. Should be ok after 18 months but sometimes they just get sticky.
    If it does, I'd turn the vertical radiators down a bit but still stay acceptably hot (you can usually hear the water flowing in - just listen to it like closing a tap a bit) and see if that helps.

    As with milk, which is even cheaper, it's more wondering whether it needs to be wasted or not. I had a little bit. No ill effects yet.

    It's a Christmas drink.
    And I basically don't drink at home/alone.

    I have half a bottle of Warnick's Advocat. It was opened a year ago and been in the fridge since. The label says refrigerate after opening and consume within 6 months of opening. It doesn't appear curdled or separated.
    I'd like to take it to a party tomorrow because I'm hardly likely to drink the stuff at home, but I don't want to make anyone ill. I'll give it a taste in the morning. If it tastes ok and looks ok is it likely to be ok? (In the manner of milk going off) Or is it likely to carry bad bacteria (even without looking bad).

    Not sure I can say I 'enjoyed' that but I appreciated it.

    More likely to be a sticky shutter than a hole

    Doing the opposite (me buying other half out) is costing around £500 in solicitor stuff. Maybe £750 in total. The bank will ask you to get your own solicitor, I'm fairly sure.

    I think the "transfer of deeds" bit is around £350 but there are some extras.
