  1. Many thanks for all of your advice. We have again spoken to the neighbours. It looks like the rat is coming from a property which is empty. They plan to call in pest control, hopefully this will sort it out. Once again, thanks for your input, always value advice from pw members.
  2. Hope you can help me with this one. Next door neighbour feeds birds. There is a day which continually goes across the top of hedge across our garden into next door to feed in fallen seed etc. We have spoken to neighbours who have cleared up fallen bird seed and still continue to feed birds. The rat still comes across the top of the hedge too if hedge down into their garden to feed. My problem is how to get rid of the rat, if I put bait box near side of fence, is this likely to attract the rat?

  3. As someone who's just moved I do sympathise. It's so hard to get surveyors, building reports, searches, removals etc. With hindsight, don't think it was a good idea to move during a pandemic.

  8. Can't be have a Christmas jumper, can or Brut and soap on a rope instead?
  9. Use a long lead rather than retractable. There are plenty on the market. They can be a bit of a pain, constantly reeling and letting them out, some get heavy when wet. However they are much better than retractable ones and help with recall training.
  10. I may be wrong but is it important to know if they are tenants in common or joint tenants? Doesn't this effect any claims that can be made against the property and his share?
  11. We are in the process of buying a house with a soakaway for surface water drainage. Surveyor has reported that the garden Is drenched, admittedly after heavy rain. This is the first time I've come across soakaways and would appreciate any advice - pros v cons. What to look out for. Hope you can help, ta.
