Re: Right of way for drainage, help please

Why not offer arbitration, this would strengthen your court case if the other party declined to participate or refused to agree. And you might come to an agreement. I would expect that courts take a dim view of having their time wasted on property disputes. We did try a settlement meeting. It went ...

Re: New car?

Sounds like your sepentine belt (not timing belt) has snapped. If the recovery guy called it a timing belt then ignore everything he said. The serpentine belt will not have damaged the timing belt. It may have damaged something else. If it's just the serpentine belt, then it can be replaced easily ...

Re: IHT versus CGT on bequeathed property

If the house is sold in the Administration period by the Executor, then as another poster said, it is the estate that pays CGT but it does have a personal allowance during the admin period (unless that exceeds 2 full tax years from the date of death) The Executor could allocate a share of the prope...

Re: Dyson drops out

Gosh golly wow. Sir James has finally figured out that £2 billion won't be enough money after all to build an electric car that can compete with VW - which, BTW, plans to have spent $33 billion on EVs by the year 2023. :shock: So the whole Dyson car project is cancelled with immediate effect.

Re: Making a big hole in a wall

It is a round hole. The first hole was for a fan. This one is for some ducting to vent outside. I think the wall is about 11 inches including plaster. Thinking about it (based upon a 4" hole I drilled), the blocks are probably hollow. The wall is a bit patchworky (with some brickwork among the...

Re: SVS Securities bites the dust

This was to an email address specific to SVS and addressed me by the exact SVS name. It is obvious that their customer list has been sold or leaked by perhaps a disgruntled employee. This is surely a serious data breach. Anyone else received similar? Yes. And similar to you, it's an email address s...

Well that's that. Now the deadline date for PPI claims has passed I can welcome the cessation of TV commercials exhorting me to claim before it was too late. It seemed unending.

Re: Scantronic Burglar Alarm

Depends how the window sensors are wired - they may be in series with other contacts. Easier if they are on a separate circuit, then best to disconnect at the control box end and link the window contact terminals in the control box. There is also the issue of the tamper circuit if fitted and that wi...

Re: Google Maps live traffic

From anyone using Google maps on their smart phone or other device.

You obviously have to enable 'Location' and the app will transmit to Google Maps if you are not moving and your speed if you are.

Enough people using this on busy roads nowadays to get sufficient accuracy.

Unless you are going onto Apple at work, would it not be better to get a Windows 10 machine to better familiarise yourself with it and make your work life easier?
