I have to say, in a parallel universe, who has friends who get in touch and say ' sorry but this is slightly awkward, don't suppose you could lend us a few grand to finish our superior, cutting edge, all glass modernist new build could you?'

More information about how much the renovation costs are will avoid people being ripped off. Can we not have something like the price for eg standard plastering and painting a square meter is £ nn. 00, (insulating, floors, tiling) instead of your builder to add hundreds because of your post code and not knowing what 'will be found'?Why in UK there are not standards and lots of improvisations are permitted?
