    trees dying help!

    Anyone else annoyed that the trees are being allowed to die in fairview close? I know its hot weather but I've emailed the managment company several times over the past few weeks but the trees are still dying. I'm sorry to see that these 15 year old trees are being allowed to dehydrate and for...

    Census forms: do people have them yet?

    Got mine about a week ago. The fella called in to explain it, so he confirms name etc, I've seen him since a couple of times wearing a CSO hi-vis. Poor fella, probably difficult to catch everybody in the area at home. I'm sure he's working off a list and will be back around. CSO pays a fixed...

    bicycle theft

    think you're right about the local kids again. Also found something stuck to the magnetic lock on the door from the car park to block C. Preventing the lock from locking properly, probably how they got away. I'm going to be very vigilant for this on the door to my block and I'd advise others to...

    bicycle theft

    didn't check all the doors to the carpark, but 3 hours is a small window for such a gathering of coincidences. I'll get mick the caretaker to check the cctv when he's in tomorrow, maybe that will shed some light on it. With bike wheels and parts going missing my gut tells me its not the easy...

    Issue for Agenda for Mgt Meeting 21st October 7.30 Croke Park.

    Hello, Here's the issues I would raise. Looking at the accounts it appears that we have a 40,000euro deficit this year. I really don't want management fees to increase and I see that we are spending 42,000 on light and heat. Does this seem excessive to anyone else? The drainage in the...

    Hi, for me the title will be the final peice of the puzzle, other than that i'm all set, even have the cheque issued, I'm really looking forward to it. I wonder if the developers know how useless their solictors are?

    hi paul, I got a ber certificate from the builders solicitors issued on the 5th feb for a 2 bed in block b, coming in at a B3 rating. I am still waiting clarification on the title issue for over a month now. It sounds very like your map mismatch. Did you get this resolved or are you being stalled?

    introduce myself

    Hi Paul, I have to agree with ned about calling the foreman, sometimes the legal end don't know their arse from their elbow and a quick intervention by you with the foreman can sort things out. Happened to me with storage, it took the legals a week to catch up on something as plain as your nose...

    Hi, thanks everyone for replying. This hitch might not be so bad, yesterday's paper says that there are 29 units left and contracts for 10 of these have been signed since christmas, leaving just 19 unsold.
