    I am deeply ashamed at some of the advice given to the OP.

    Clearly, the poor man has been totally ripped off and must, at the first instance contact Trading Standards/ Gassafe, or Cowboy Builders etc.

    With huge sums of money at stake like this, these people need to be outed.
    :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    I've got one. Done loads of little jobs for him in his cowboy renovated house, either gratis or for nominal charge.
    Supplied and fitted a new bath waste and o/flow the other week cos his was pouring through the ceiling.
    Charged him 35 quid, which is nothing as we know, hasn't spoke to me since. :LOL: :LOL:
    People on the other side are great, but then he's a heating engineer.

    OP, just bcause he lives next door means nothing.

    I do virtually nothing for neighbours aside a few who accept I have a mortgage and kids to have to pay for :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
     
  11. when ever someone wants something done for free/next to nothing i always ask them what they can do for me in return? i usually just get a blank stare and then say to them "my point exactly" :LOL:

    Next time someone wants a favour, say Ok, can you wash and polish the car/van while I'm gone please.

    Mow the lawn, dig the garden etc are all valid job swaps :LOL:

    An accountant you can say great, you can do my accounts while I'm there.

  13. What these idiots don't seem to realise is that a plumber does it for a living. That's where he gets his income to pay the bills/mortgage etc. It's not a hobby.
