to be fair, I have seen a couple where he´s done just that.

En Suite! ******* hell, what is this obsession with en-suite bathrooms? We are trying to sell our house at the moment and every Brit that comes to view it goes on about installing an en suite....the bathroom is down 10 steps ffs!!!

What about a walk in closet. Too much TV I think. Everyone wants a Crib.

You should increase the price. If they have the readies to piss about with that kind of conversion then they can give you a little more.

I dont understand the obsession with buying somewhere and than making wholesale changes. Look for a house you like almost 100% without changes.
I cant understand why people would put themselves through all that grief, if they have time and a fair sum of money.

I get that some will need to buy somewhere that needs work or even a complete renovation. But when you have choices, why choose that kind of headache.

And then complain to all and sundry about the problems you are having, and asking whether this quote or that sounds reasonable. Lack of planning feckwits.

Usually driven by the woman in the relationship.

Just buy a house you like and be done with it.

My place has been completely renovated, there is NOTHING needing doing and yet one pillock (and this was filmed for A Place in the Sun) offered us 25k less than our asking price because he wanted to install an en suite and a roof terrace...he was factoring the cost of this and knocking it off the price, basically expecting us to pay for it.

I guess you either never have a bunch of friends staying over - or daughters/sons girlfriends - or you are happy to shove some clothes on every time you need a piss.

Feck that. A quick dash through the dressing room, aka the air lock, do the business and straight back into a warm bed.

I suggest you have a spare room and stop your guests sleeping in the hall between your bedroom and the toilet

If you have space for a dressing room / air lock between your bedroom and your en suite, I suggest that placing your guests in another wing of the estate would resolve any potential embarrassment ;)

Place them in the lodge dear chap:p

Put a tent in the garden and give them a spade to dig the hole for their crap.

By spade I mean a garden tool.

I guess he won't be buying.

You should have given him a backhander with sovereign rings on.

I wasn´t allowed to meet him.....especially when they had to cut the all important "making the offer on a telephone call to theseller" scene because of me shouting "Is he having a ******* laugh!?" down the phone.

PeterH 15-12-2017 07:42 PM

Hilarious. You've tickled me there. Things that make me happy thread.

Crap musicians in High Streets or shopping centres

I apologize. You were joking, I'm sure, and I let my own situation affect how I responded. I shouldn't have been so prickly about it.

Isn't 'choosing' and 'deciding' not to the same thing? Not sure the point you are making but anyway...

You should apologise for spelling apologise with a z

I can't remember the name of the charity but it's to help homeless people and is the advert that annoys and not the charity btw.

starts off with a young guy on the street then cuts to an old guy being led into a hostel who looks very down and out (and here's where my annoyance lies) as soon as he's greeted in his expression turns into one like a wrong un with some big sex pest grin across his chops and his eyes glaring.
