    Party wall agreements are blank cheques for your neighbours to spend your money.

    I do not really expect any replies, just a little rant, a voice in the wilderness. I shelved the idea of going into my loft coversion today. The neighbours have legitimate concerns regards all sorts. The cost of appointing surveyors is such that we have decided we will have to move if we want a...

    Signing off others work

    Does any one know, now that they have dumbed down Part P, if you have to register to sign off someone else's work or if you are already a member of a scheme you can just do it. Plus what certificate do you use because if you haven't installed it surely you can't use a EIC. Maybe a EICR? thanks chaps

    Anyone interested in Pirate Parties?

    Hey, so there have been so many discussions about the Pirate parties in Northern Europe - they mostly say they represent the interests of internet users. E.g. they are for the free use of internet and very popular in Germany at the moment. What do you guys think of them?
