looking for great estate agents with flats in Cardiff Bay
I am looking for a new place to live in the week whilst I am on my twelve month contract with the hospital and have been looking for the good estate agents Cardiff Bay has in the area. I want to be in the Bay area as it’s great for relaxing at the weekend and is only about two minutes drive from the hospital.
I have found two perfect for what I need and both are good options but I am leaning towards one as it has a 24 hours concierge in place and I like that additional peace of mind knowing he is always in and around the block. The second one is a little bigger but doesn’t have that added security and so I have to weigh things up.

Been to most estate agents Cardiff Bay has already

I have been to a great many agents now in and close to the Bay area and had shortlisted the ones I thought were good and some that had the right properties. In the end I was lucky to find one that ticked both the nice people and right property boxes. The one I think I am almost certain to go for is really nice. Its been really well decorated and I would not need to do anything which was a big unexpected bonus and the location is fab right on the waterfront.
The kitchen has clearly just been completely done and has all integrated appliances and the quality of it is very unusual for a rental property. The bath and shower room is also newly decorated and a really nice standard. The living/dining area is huge and the furnishings look fantastic and all the bedrooms are also really well turned out.

Not all the estate agents Cardiff Bay have are worth a visit

I guess its the same for every profession but some of the agents I visited were dreadful. The pictures they put up looked great but the reality when you viewed was something very different, they must have been experts in photoshop or something. I viewed some absolute corkers some of which I would not allow a dog to stay in but not knowing the area particularly well I did have to rely on others to give me the help and advise I needed.
I have now put in my offer and should know today whether or not I get to move in either way I would like to thank one of the agents that helped me throughout the process and hopefully will be getting me the flat I want http://www.pmpremier.co.uk

our swaps mis-selling claim
After years of struggling with payments for a loan we took out to improve the surgery it seems we have a swap mis-selling claim to make against the bank who gave us the loan. It was quite a few years ago now and we wanted to make some improvements to the surgery and the outlay was quite significant so we decided to go to the bank to get the funds we needed.

We went to our bank as we felt they knew the business and would give us the best possible advice. what we didn’t know was that the bank had a good idea that interest rates were going to fall. The chap suggested we add one of these swaps within the agreement as he said it would protect us against any future rises in interest rates which at the time seemed plausible. He called it a kind of insurance policy against problems and we agreed and took out the loan.

We didn’t really understand the swaps mis-selling scam

When our accountant mentioned the loan we had and the swaps element that it had inside it we explained our story and to our surprise he explained that the banks had been found to be mis-selling these products. He asked us a load of questions about the loan and how it was explained to us and he suggested afterwards that we needed to speak to someone who specialised in this kind of case.
He also said a few of his other clients had gone through the process and some had got back money and compensation for the claim. It wasn’t an easy process apparently and so we agreed to meet with a company that he suggested and that meeting was set up by him for the following week.
We managed to pay the loan but some months it was a real big ask and when we were told that it could all have to be paid back and that the FCA were behind the scheme we were excited to see what the solicitor had to say.

Meeting for our swaps mis-selling issue

Within a week the meeting was set up and we spoke to the company about our situation. We passed them all the paperwork and went through a comprehensive set of questions that they needed answers too and then they said that we had a claim and they would be happy to take it on for us. We were a bit worried about fees but they offered us a no win no fee solution to our problem which we readily agreed too.
We signed up for them to start the claim and they said they would do everything from then on and that they did not think the case would even get to court. Our swaps mis-selling ordeal is likely now to settle and we will get back a decent amount for our troubles offer the years of the loan agreement. http://triumphlegal.co.uk

engraved plaques for clinic

Ordering new engraved plaques for the clinic entrance

We have decided to smarten up the front of the clinic by ordering some new signage and some engraved plaques. Its ages since we did anything with the place and its long overdue but in terms of priorities its been way down the list. We ave had to do a lot to the place this year from a new and very expensive computer and phone system to some internal work including a new toilet and waiting room refresh. With so much work being done and so much upheaval its taken a while to make the decision to have further work done but the front is looking a bit tired and so we felt it was best to get it done this year and have a stress free 2015.

We had a few companies in and will be using two different companies for the work. One specialises in out door signs and we are sung them for the big clinic signs either side of the car park and buildings and the second does engraved plaques and that kind of sign. The engraved signs will go on the main wall at the doorway and we have gone for a highly polished chrome sign that we felt gave that clinical feel we wanted.

Exterior sign took a day, engraved plaques about twenty minutes

I really felt for the guys doing the exterior signs as the weather was terrible the day they came to fit the signs. Not only did it rain the shoe day but it was really windy and they had a nightmare from start to finish. Poor guys got drenched and blown around our car park for the entire day and they said afterwards that everything that could go wrong just did. On the positive side they do look amazing and we are so happy with the job they did. Next up it was the engravers that were up next and they didn’t disappoint. Twenty minutes after arriving the plaques were up and they look great too.

Big thanks for the new signs and engraved plaques

We would like to thank both the teams who did our signs for the great work they did and have even already had a quote for some internal works now we have seen what can be done. For now I think we will take a break from more works but maybe 2015 will not be as quiet as I was expecting. We would recommend the guys we used on the project and can only speak highly of them both.

The signage has given the place a much more inviting feel and I think create a much better first impression for people that visit the clinic. Seeing them in place I wish we had done them sooner but at least they are done now. Already we have had loads of positive feedback on the new look and this is always good to hear as often it feels like people only ever complain about problems and never focus on the good things. http://www.stonesign.com
