If you read my last post about moving, you will know the flat I bought needs a lot of work. I will be honest, I didn’t realise how much! I have been (and am) at the mercy therefore of various tradesmen, (I haven’t found a woman round here in the renovating field as yet).
The start of it all
After much delay, the purchase of this flat went through all of a sudden. This meant I wasn’t ready to move! Although I had a date for leaving the rental flat I hadn’t had a completion date in advance so I hadn’t been able to book people in. So there I was, with a week to moving in, not really wanting to pay for two places but with very little packed. What was more, the flat to move to had mouldy walls, ceiling bowed with a leak, yucky carpet and various other issues . What to do?
