Re: Unemployment

Re: cracks appearing from vibrations?

I would cut around inside and out with an angle grinder , will be dusty but then the brickwork should come away without to much effort and would also make it easier to make good the opening after the french doors have been installed .

Re: Modern cars, no spare wheel. Worried?

Nope , ours was €100 spare wheel , €1000 Air con and Radio , €10 for cup holder , €200-500 choice of colours but red was standard so no additional charge . Even the price quoted for bog standard basic was €1000 less than we could have bought it for with cash , they deducted €1000 to advertize a low ...

Re: Modern cars, no spare wheel. Worried?

We opted to pay an additional €100 for a traditional spare wheel when we bought our Ford , heard of to many instances where the stuff that came with the car was not up to fixing the flat and although we are covered by breakdown services its a lot less hassle and certainly much quicker to just change...

Even if the buyer finds their own Lawyer the Lawyer will do all he can for the sale to go through as they know if it doesn't then the agent will steer future buyers away from them . They wont bite the ...
