    Building work

    Its really intrusive. From the kids I've seen on the wall, I don't think any are from our estate. I would be very cautious about putting up glass - Imight be illegal? I remember someone before recommending some sort of grease what you can put on walls, but I cant remember the name ... I'd just...

    Car Parking

    Ohhhh I'm always so tempted to know someones door off outside that creche! Could so easily happen. Can the creche not put up cones outside with no parking? Really annoys me as most of the time there are available spaces in the car park beside the creche. Even still people will pull in both...

    Leasing of unsold affordable units at phibblestown wood dublin 15 to fold housing ass

    Thanks for sharing Deesy. I've never heard of Fold, but from their website it seems like they provide accomodation to support independent living. Given the alternatives, this sounds like a good option. Over the last few weeks I'd seen some builders in some of the empty apartments so prop...

    Management Fee 09

    Its not something I'd dying to pay - but are we not contractually bound? As an aside, my boyfriends complex have taken over the management of the estate themselves. There are 3 blocks, one of apartments and 2 blocks of houses. They have a rossiter to clean the apartments, they directly employ...

    Hi HH, I've had no problems with my oven. I do find when I open the over door a lot of steam comes out, but apart from that its fine. Have you been able to contact the manufacturers? E

    Car Parking

    I know that mgmt companies charge a lot, but I dont see any alternative. I'm not sure what usually happens, but I believe it would be a lot of work and responsibility for a residents group to manage the estate, i.e. arrange for refuse collections, get grass cut, pay street ESB bills, pay group...

    Car Parking

    I know it can be frustrating with regards the parking but everyone needs to bear in mind that there aren't 2 spaces outside everyones house. Also there is no dedicated parking, so people are free to park where they like. I know people feel like the spaces outside their house are theirs, but we...

    supermarket trolleys

    Hopefully Keenan will come up with something, I don't think a barrier would be the solution as surely that would also prevent buggies/prams fitting through? You'd think at this stage the supermarkets would do something to keep from their trolleys from going astray!

    Bord Gais

    Thats really strange. I haven't had a gas connection before. I wonder if the deposits are only for apartments? Maybe get on to the citizen information place and see what they have to say. It all seems very inconsistent!!
