  1. any signs of droppings? have you a positive I.D that it is rats and not something like squirrels, maybe try wildlife camera to see just how infested the shop is, any overgrown land nearby or adjacent to the property. Traps are better for the environment/wildlife, the best option maybe a Cat if you have one or could borrow one.
  2. Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested by a person who is qualified and competent, at an interval of at least every 5 years. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants, and to their local authority if requested. This means that all landlords now have to do what good landlords already do: make sure the electrical installations in their rented properties are safe. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/electrical-safety-standards-in-the-private-rented-sector-guidance-for-landlords-tenants-and-local-authorities/guide-for-landlords-electrical-safety-standards-in-the-private-rented-sector
  3. ours are hardwired, we have replacements for when the backup batteries need changing normally last 5 years we routinely replace when they start bleeping. the only thing tenants pay and replace are lightbulbs actually tell a lie we have replaced a few lights at our cost with LED strip lighting so won't need changing again, also put in usb charging sockets too.
  4. I remember as a kid my friends mother died falling from a number 36 routemaster in the late 70's my brother used to drive them in the 90's and he never liked people hopping on and off. but then he didn't like collecting money when they switched to pay drivers. I was quite fond of them, I never had a problem jumping on and off as a teenager, but back then i could out run a routemaster most days, as they tackled Blackheath Hill with the conductor shouting I should be in the olympics lol
  5. Tenants pay rent, as part of that rent, it covers wear and tear, repairs and maintenance.
  6. boiler service is whats meant to happen every year, its a requirement... we do it and have various plans, landlord insurance without exception fire alarms and detectors are landlords responsibility, so for a few quid why invalidate the insurance and a gas safety check every year. it's not difficult to be above board with the regulations such as the deposit scheme over 10 years never had a problem tenant always carried out repairs and maintenance its not difficult, if you need a letting agent then it comes at a cost like anything thing need to be paid for no matter how short your arms might be, it'll be an expensive lesson if any property has fire damage through a landlords neglect.
  7. its unlikely to sink in, thankfully the laws inplace are getting tighter to deal with the likes of justin and his ilks thinking
  8. i'd rather spend £20 and have peace of mind that a tenant won't come to any harm from a boiler or appliance we own, I can't even comprehend thinking if something goes wrong we could fix the gas appliance, and replace a dead tenant. for the sake of £20 every 10 years
  9. he must squeak when he walks he's that tight, yet wants so much its like a 2yr old at the sweet counter
  10. 1 carbon monoxide alarm £20 lasts 10-12 yrs ....... maybe raise the rent by a 1p a week or just be a decent landlord
  11. we supply fire extinguishers, smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms electrics are certificated, gas is checked yearly . Guess we aren't cheapskates, when its comes to our social responsibilities towards our tenants. you really are a cretin
  12. its a scam to get you to call the number close the window or do a shutdown and reboot
  13. Diabetes increases the risk of plaque buildup in the arteries, which can cause dangerous blood clots. Nearly 80 percent of people who have diabetes will eventually die of clot-related causes. https://www.heart.org/en/health-topics/venous-thromboembolism/understand-your-risk-for-excessive-blood-clotting#:~:text=Diabetes increases the risk of,die of clot-related causes. number of people with diabetes reaches 4.7 million https://www.diabetes.org.uk/about_us/news/new-stats-people-living-with-diabetes so 3760000 expected future deaths from blood clots
  14. There's no riddle, the man was just being a plank. Just like those planks here, just a phoney ego trip over a form that covers male/female and inbetweeners. he should have tick No and imo needs to learn to get over himself, that form isn't designed solely around him or one sex.
  15. what is so difficult its (one) form covering all, one question, a simple NO or YES During a pregnancy, you are not able to give blood, hence the Question is on the form, remembering it a one size fits all form. So much faux posturing is indicative theses days, another day in the oh so outraged world of the forum.
