Thanks, Jamie. I moved house last week and the new place was broken into on Thursday. Miraculously nothing taken, although my room was turned upside down. They must have been disturbed. They broke the door frame, though, so the only thing securing the door is a Yale lock. It'll need carpentry to fix the frame to any level of security, and a new lock too.

The landlord in this particular case is currently cycling around New Zealand.

Oh, hell. I think you're in the realm of looking for carpenters/locksmiths that do emergency callouts, but if there's anything I can do then drop me an email.

Oh no Bethan! You are having bad luck - hope it changes soon. Let us know if we can do anything to help xxx

On a related note, any roofer recommendations?

Thanks guys, to cap it all off there's no internet either, so I'm mostly trying to sort things out from my office! We're secured on the Yale for now, which is as secure as an emergency fix and MUCH better than nothing! :-O

Oh no, what a nightmare! Glad nothing was taken.

James Dunn. A bit more expensive than the competition, but does things like actually turning up and completing work to a reasonable standard.

On a related note, avoid First Choice and any of the firms with Abbott in their name like the plague.

Thanks Jamie, think we have a leak....

Ha! Avoiding Abbott reminds me that when I was looking for a heating guy from the official local (alphabetically arranged) listing, I made sure to start at least halfway down the list...
