For those of us that are cheesed off paying non-residents' fees for our electricity, an extra 10% of the bill....and getting no joy after repeated phone calls to Enel, did you know that you can switch provider to Italy Powered?They don't charge extra and it's really easy to switch over as they do all the 'donkey work' for you! Check them out at this address: http://www.italypowered.com/ PS they also do cheaper gas now too!
I need to have a bit of work done on the flat I have just bought but I don't understand the difference between an architect and a geometra. Different people swear that I should only see one or the other but their reasoning is a little bit vague. Can anyone tell me where to find out which one I should use and what the difference is? Cheers, Steveed
Dear all, I am convinced that there is a burst water mains running under my house (I can hear the water from my bathroom and I swear it wasn't there before). Who do I contact in the event that I need the local authorities to come and confirm that there is nothing damaging my property. Many thanks, Charlie
Sorry guys but this is a little long winded. I have a house just outside Bagni di Lucca, I have been restoring the property over the last 3 years. I am having problems with my neighbour whose house is attached to mine. I have an architect who got permission from the commune for a vertical extension. The builder has now completed the extension but she states the roof is too high and has now served papers on me for 10k compensation. Surely this is not my problem, I hired an architect that got permission from the commune and the builder states the measurements are correct.Any thoughts!
Does anyone know a good garden center within an hour of Panzano? I've just moved and have a lovely new garden for my cat - but I need to get some plastic fencing to stop him from getting out.I've tried yellow pages, but I can only find people offering gardening services or garden design etc. Can anyone tell me the correct Italian if I'm looking for a garden center or gardening supplies?Many thanks in advance,Jude.
We have very high gutters in our house in Anghiari (Arezzo), which are badly blocked.It would be impossible for a cherry-picker to get round the back of the house.I'm wondering if anyone has had this problem, or can suggest a solution?It is possible to get onto the roof through a skylight, and it should be possible to get at the gutters that way, perhaps for a mountaineer!
