    Personally I'd bung a few more in there. I followed the planting instructions for my hedge and whilst its come on well, I think it could have done with another 2 plants to thicken it out a bit more. As long as you feed and water well it shouldn't be a problem.

    About 5pc is a valuers tolerance. A lot , in reality, depends if they are working on their own insurance or whether they are an employee and they are covered by the firm...

    I used complete shutters in Woodford. They were good when I ordered them, and I got real wood at MDF price but their follow up after service hasn't been very good. I'd still recommend them but just note that if you need their support afterwards you might not be that impressed.

    Do not use Hillary's blinds they are terrible terrible people and will probably fuck you over in some way.

    My dualit toaster, which I am very fond of, only has two toaster settings in reality. The first is, oh that's not done at all, I'd better wait a few minutes more, and the second, which is available about 1 minute after the first, is: fuck me my kitchen is full of smoke, my breakfast is fucked, can someone call the fire brigade?

    They do look nice though.

    The answer to that is Leytonstone.

    I'd say about 70-100k plus for pretty much everything , excluding the side return, assuming you are in the south. However much depends on the spec of the kitchen and bathroom, whether plumbing is done in copper or plastic, whether it needs a new roof or ceilings, whether the externals are sound or whether it needs repointing, whether you'll do the loft at the same time, landscape in anyway etc etc etc.

    Just say to your current lawyer you only can afford £80 or whatever he'll probably do it for you

    What about the foundations though for the extension? I suspect he may need an agreement because of that issue.

    Don't have any recommendations for that but in the meanwhile I'd be off to Screwfix or Toolstation and be buying a roll of flashing tape and sealing it up as best you can for now.

    If the work you are doing means you remove the entire chimney , from floor to stack, and nothing remains, then it isn't notifiable. If it's only a partial removal and some of the stack or breast remains then you should so it on a building notice.
