    Should Landlord or Tenants pay for home improvements

    ...the tenants need access to the attic, it sounds like you don't have it floored. As noted above, I would argue it should only be accessed for plumbing and electrical works. Perhaps insulation works. And its not down to the tenant to do these types of works. But if the tenants were intending to...

    Should Landlord or Tenants pay for home improvements

    ...attic access and there is a record of your failure to spend 200E on safety equipment, stiras are quite common these days and not considered luxury. Treat it like a business and suck it up is what I suggest. Never know, you might want access to yourself e.g. Plumbing, alarm fitting repair

    Electricity Bills sky high

    ...of renovation that you have done. They are generally very efficient when sized properly, used in an A rated home with the correct internal plumbing e.g. low temperature radiators or underfloor heating. To give you a rough idea, we (2 adults) live in a 4 bed semi-D (130sqm) with A3 rating. Our...

    Bitcoin in a hyperbolic bubble

    ...on behalf of its asset-management clients. From the WSJ: "In time, BNY Mellon will allow those digital assets to pass through the same plumbing used by managers’ other, more traditional holdings—from Treasurys to technology stocks—using a platform that is now in prototype.

    Immersion Switch

    ...in such a cylinder. The smaller coil if you just want to heat enough water for a basin or shower. The longer coil which heats the whole tank would be for a bath. That would be more efficient as you could choose the quantity of water to heat. Maybe ask a plumber or phone a plumbing supplies...

    Age 60 want money for a holiday and to do some renovations

    I never once suggested, intimated or even hinted that he could. In fact I fully agree with what you have said so-far. I'm just at a loss as to why you quoted my post and then followed up as you did?

    Age 60 want money for a holiday and to do some renovations

    ...the 300K would have an income built in of another 10K say in rent a room, tax free. Do you honestly think he can put in new windows, new plumbing, new wiring and renovate something of 220m2 that hasn't been touched in 40 years for 60K. If he borrows a Life Loan he's snookered. He has to...

    Age 60 want money for a holiday and to do some renovations

    ...as bad as you say, the property is in need of a deep retrofit and it is much more than a DIY job. You really need professional work for all plumbing, electrics and insulation. Unless you are a qualified tradesperson, you should not be doing any of that as you will not add value to the...

    Age 60 want money for a holiday and to do some renovations

    ...We've gone from spending a minimum to make it look good costing 60K to increase it's value by 120K. Totally contradicted by you tellin us it needs - 220m2 house needing new windows - BER (presumably insulation) - Plumbing - rewiring And mad valuations from 400K to 800K swinging in the wind.

    Age 60 want money for a holiday and to do some renovations

    ...would want to see certification to ensure standards are met. You will need a lot of professional work anyway in terms of electrics and plumbing, insulation. And it is a huge house at 220sqm so €50k is unlikely to put a dent in anything other than cosmetic changes If your plan is to sell and...

    Age 60 want money for a holiday and to do some renovations

    2. What bills are you paying off. 3. that's a very wide margin there between €400K and €600K. How much would the renovation cost? Sounds like a very expensive job to me. What work are you able to do. Do you have a garage, a part of your house suitable to change into a self contained unit...

    Cost of small extension

    ...than a larger one. For anything decent, no structural changes to existing, you're looking at 40k+. I'd add another 5k for the ensuite, plumbing, etc. Costs of ensuite depend very much on fittings, etc. For example if you wanted it to be wheelchair accessible wetroom, or standard toilet &...

    Questions re. kitchen redesign

    ...appliances would still be against an external wall. My questions about this are: (a) How much does moving the sink / cooker / dishwasher (plumbing, gas) add to cost / difficult? We'd most likely be just moving them down the same external wall they are already on? (b) Is it essential that...

    In this new extension I am doing the builder already has the plumbing in, it's just a matter of finding the right size rad. In my father's house it was an old stone built house with the boiler and existing rads on totally the opposite side to extension and no easy way of tapping into existing...

    Keeping the Heating On

    ...but you can get a smart heating control system with individually controlled room thermostats to go on your rads for less than 500e with no plumbing required. Handy to have different temperature set points in different rooms on different times of different days dependent on your usage pattern...
