A If you hire a tradesman or company to carry out a service for you, by law, it is required to do it with proper care and attention. It should have the appropriate skills to do the work. Any materials it uses should be fit for purpose and of acceptable quality. If you are unhappy with the work, or feel that it didn't provide a proper service with proper care, used poor quality materials, or didn't complete the job as agreed, you are entitled to have it sort out the problem by negotiating with it to either fix it, or to fully or partially refund you the money you paid for the work. If you haven't already done so, you should complain to the company in writing setting out the issue and how you want it resolved. You can find template complaint letters and more information on ccpc.ie. Unfortunately, as the job cost more than €2,000, you cannot use the Small Claims process so if you still don't get a satisfactory response from the company, you may have to seek legal advice on the … [Read more...] about Your questions answered: Should concrete firm pay for poor work?

The man behind the new £1.5 billion A14 construction has spoken candidly to Cambridgeshire Live about the massive project after facing a barrage of criticism from under-pressure families. David Bray has been challenged over the noise and disruption caused by Britain's biggest road upgrade which some claim has caused sleepless nights and even mental health problems. The A14 project director at Highways England has also spoken about how the project due to be completed by 2020, is progressing - and how he will attempt to alleviate the disruption caused by the massive construction project. It will see 21 miles of the A14 upgraded to three lanes in each direction - four between Bar Hill and Girton - and the building of 34 bridges.

SPENT the past few months thinking about quitting your job and now finally feel ready? Turns out it’s quite common to jack work in as the mercury rises. According to recent statistics, 56% of us are unhappy at work, while another study reveals that over a third of unhappy employees will quit their position at the start of summer, due to resentment that grows in the first half of the year. “Some spend a lot of time building up to actually making the decision to quit,” says Emma Donaldson-Feilder, principal coach at Careerpyschologists.co.uk. “Most of the people I see for career coaching are considering not just quitting their job, but also making a whole change in their career.” With that in mind, how do you prepare for the next job and make sure you nail the all-important interview?

Spain legends that left through the backdoor The disappointing World Cup for Spain means that their focus now turns towards the UEFA Nations League, a tournament that begins in less than two months. La Roja will first play England at Wembley Stadium on September 8 before then playing Croatia in Elche on September 11 in matches that relate to Euro 2020 qualification. Despite these upcoming two games, there are a few questions that need to be answered. 1) Who will be the new coach? The Julen Lopetegui earthquake before the World Cup completely changed the scene of tranquillity that was surrounding the national team.

Luis Enrique, Michel and Quique Sanchez Flores are the favourites to succeed Lopetegui and Fernando Hierro, with Rubiales expected to announce the successful candidate in the coming days. 2) Will Pique say goodbye to the national team? In the second game of the group stage … [Read more...] about Two months to restructure the new Spain: Six unanswered questions
When I tell people I live in Lichtenberg, the response is generally unfavourable. From a smug “so that’s basically Poland” to the more apologetic “well…at least IKEA’s nearby!”, opinions on our decision to live in the eastern district tend to veer towards the negative. But after six months of defensiveness when somebody questions our choice of district, it’s a decision I still stick by. Lichtenberg was never on our radar when my boyfriend and I began the search for a permanent base. But when the notorious Berlin flat hunt became more urgent, we decided to look beyond the Ringbahn - the suburban rail line which encircles the inner city. In a city so well connected, we were happy to forget about our preferred districts and just focus on finding a flat with a reasonable enough commute to the centre. Our new game plan worked. Just two weeks later, we were signing the lease for a Wohnung to call our own. Only two stops outside of the Ring, … [Read more...] about People think life in Berlin ends outside the Ringbahn.
