    Selling a plot on your boundary

    Interesting feedback, thanks! The site is unusual, it’s got neighbouring house one side and two main roads virtually front and back so only really one side to be concerned with. I’ll see what my lawyer says as standard and tweak if required. It’s a bit of risk selling and I hate flogging...

    Selling a plot on your boundary

    It will only ever be agriculture Mains drains I think, not sure I’m too worried about more building, think I will put up a fence on the inside of the hedge

    Selling a plot on your boundary

    Hoping to go under offer for a building plot on our boundary for a single dwelling soon. Own access so no real interaction likely. I need to give thought to condition etc. All I can think of is their right to light and who will own the boundary and who should maintain it. What other things...

    Going rate for board and lodging for a week or so

    Just to be clear, I put a ? On the end of that on the basis that I assumed that self employed would factor in all their costs to the price of a job. Thank you. This post seems to have split us all in opinion. He’s very good value but that’s mostly because of where he lives and where we live...

    Going rate for board and lodging for a week or so

    He asked us if we wanted his services, we said we may do. He offered us £X hr to come south and do as much work as we wanted. He asked us to pay half the transport costs. He then asked where he could stay, was there space with us. It never occurred to me that his hourly rate for working away...
