I have today off work today because the Council are upgrading the intercom thingy for the block. They will need access to my flat to replace the receiver.
So I took the opportunity to let a surveyor from a heating company (affilliated with British Gas) come round and inspect the central heating. Two birds with one stone!
The surveyor chap remarked how nice and clean my flat was. He said he's been to some right dumps in his job and that the worst ones seem to be the ones with cats. He also said that he visited an identical flat to mine around the corner and it was so cluttered that he had to walk sideways to get through the flat! Apparently the company would not be able towork there as it posed a Health and Safety risk. This ties in with the positive comment made by a painter and decorator who visited at the end of my kitchen and bathroom upgrade in July, describing some of the council properties he work in as 'flea pits!'
Even the past two private landlord representatives said I was pretty tidy so I must be doing alright.
The central heating upgrade is going ahead on 9th November. The clean Vokera Linea 28 combi boiler with a broken case will be replaced by a more energy efficient Worcester unit. As I did with the kitchen and bathroom upgrade I'll have to leave the key with the bods and prey they don't nick anything let them get on with it. Not that I want to be sitting in a freezing cold flat all day anyway!
I did ask if the bathroom radiator could be replaced with a chrome towel radiator but alas no. Even if I was to pay a bit more. This company are closely audited by Norwich City Council and things need to be done in a rigid way. bah!
