    After some advice here, after removing the wallpaper in a newly rented council house some of the plaster has come loose and goes all the way down to the bricks.

    It has been reported to the council but the date they will come and look at it is after our moving in date and we want to decorate before moving in.

    What is my best option for sorting this my self with out spending to much and with li
    Thanks

    I'll upload some pics in a min as can't do on my phone

    if i was you i would get some pva and a bag of bonding. Coat the places to plaster in waterdowned pva, and then bond out the holes. The walls are "bad" anyway so its up to you if you get them plastered or not after.

    If you want them done by a plasterer, id get a few round for a quote, its only going to be £150 - £200. If you wait for the council, IMO, they will bodge up the holes and itll look bad.

    If you can, get someone to plaster it properly, then it'll look 10000 times better.

    Those walls look pretty bad, looks like some one has used cement/render around the window.
    It would look a better job if all holes were filled out, pva the walls and complete re-skim of the walls.

    The angle beads are rusty.

    Thanks for your replys, been on to council today about it and there sending a building inspector out to look at it all as well as a complaints officer so fingers crossed they will do something about it
