  • What price a quiet life?

    A recent ‘Which’ survey found more than a quarter of UK adults have had a problem with a noisy neighbour in the past year, meaning that one in four of us will have experienced noise issues with neighbours. Loud voices and arguing topped the list of annoyances. Loud music, slamming doors and noisy pets also featured. Compared with older people, those in their 20s were almost twice as likely to say they have experienced a nuisance neighbour, according to the survey, among 18 to 24-year-olds, 33% had encountered a problem in the past year, with the figure being 17% for those aged 65 and over. Of those who had experienced a problem, loud voices were cited by 41%, followed by loud music and TVs (29%).

  • Self build VAT reclaim…….it’s your money

    There is no doubt that we all want to save money where we can, for self builders and renovators the VAT reclaim scheme is a way to reclaim cash on a project. This can represent a significant part of a self build budget and this is your entitlement in law. Our close involvement with a large range of self build projects through material supply means we have a good idea of how this affects many self builders so we asked Edward Rubie an experienced VAT reclaim specialist and erstwhile quantity surveyor and self builder to help us create a list of observations, tips and ‘must have advice’ for our customers. Hopefully this will help simplify a complicated process which will be new to many.
