Plasterer / Renderer

This tradesman came out to give me an estimate, he had arranged a time but turned up three hours early. He did not explain what he would do and did not even measure the sill which was to be replaced. I was told he would email the quote and I am still waiting. Three weeks have passed and I have gone elsewhere.

My survey states that's there is an asbestos cold water tank in the loft space that needs replacing for health reasons. Is it safe to do? How much would it cost to remove and replace with something safe?

    Not safe to remove by you!! Rather than seek the services of an asbestos removal company who will be very expensive, source a scrap Removal Company who also has an asbestos removal licence. They will save you a fortune!!

I would like to remove an internal wall in my house but I can't tell whether it is load bearing (it is not a stud wall but doesn't appear to be supporting anything). Who is the best person to contact to make this assessment for me?

    If you are in a flat, go upstairs and talk to your neighbour. Establish if there is a wall in their flat directly above the wall you propose to remove. If there is no wall above then your wall is not load bearing. Therefore it is NOT load bearing. If they do have a wall, then yes your wall is load bearing. Then you need the services of a structural engineer who will apply for a building warrant to have the wall removed. Then you need a reputable builder to remove the wall. If you live in a house, just pop upstairs and check for another wall directly above. The same facts above should be applied.
