  1. thanks for replys, thats a good idea about the hacksaw but I think the door sits in a recess, im in the uk at the moment so I will try it when I visit france next time I go
  2. does anyone know how to remove a door lock when the door is shut and the mechanism between the barrel and the bit that goes into the door frame is broken, i dont want to destroy the door to get it open unless theres no other way
  3. ive done google map and I can just see the house but thats because its in a hamlet in the middle of knowhere its a blured picture, if it was in a city or big town google will take better pictures, I think google  fly over and take photos every 2 years, my area is between la rochelle and poitiers in france
  4. 87 is that limousin, I bet its nice there, we visit deux sevres 79 its nice in the summer but cold in the winter, parthenay is a nice medieval town we go shopping in, do you visit lamoges
  5. they say the gut instict is a good decision maker, what dept have you brought in france
  6. when blair worked his magic  he sorted out the economy and house prices doubled with the economic boom over a period of years, do you think  sarkozys magic will do the same thing in france 
  7. thanks for reply, I no you can get broadband over mobile networks now days but i think it depends where you live, is there a website that tells you if your house in france is covered, like if you go on the 3network in the uk it tells me its predicted to be installed in april 08 in my area of yeovil, so it is not available yet so why do they advertise it
  8. thankyou for comments, I used the neighbours phone number and the max speed is 1024kbps, I wonder if the telephone people are going to upgrade the service in the future, its a hamlet of 5 houses in the middle of no where in deux sevres, so I dont think the phone people are going to be to interested 
  9. Is there a website in france (maybe written in english) where I can type in my french postcode to find out about broadband speed, Im not on the phone in france so I cannot type in a phone number
  10. Why would someone make secret donations to people in political partys, do they get a prize or somthing and why do these MPs except these donations then get sacked when it hits the news, I thought MPs enjoyed there jobs (sorry for posting on here, I dont know any other forums for UK things unless someone can recomend) 
  11. thankyou for the replys everyone
  12. will the pound go up or down against the euro over the next year because I transfer money into my french bank account monthly to pay the french mortgage using currenciesdirect but if the pound is going to go down over the next year im better off  transfering the whole year of money in now so I know where I stand (I would need about 7200 euros)  
  13. IF the pound and the dollar devalues then will the euro devalue to keep things in balance, the goverment rescued n rock because they invested in sub prime but were they the only uk bank to write off lots of money, theres lots of storys about international banks write offs for millions but they still made a profit  so did northern rock buy all the bad debt on the planet, i dont think so and also they get money from people in the uk paying there mortgages into the bank, what would of happened if the goverment said to nrock your on your own
  14. when i go to france on holiday and drive past the piano it always seems quiet, labsie is a nice place for a drink in the summer
  15. Chezshells why do you keep moving house all the time, did you ever go to the piano bar in vernoux
  16. thankyou sunday driver for reply, im looking for a company that makes tradditional pine dressers like the one in my picture on the left
  17. Does anyone know if theres a furniture company in the charente that makes pine dressers and belfast sink units and if so is there a website for them
  18. Yes you should get the EDF to cut of the electricity and someone to cut  the water off because it might be dangerous to tennants,  or  if they went out shopping one day and the house got burgled and everything got taken apart from the kettle and lightbulbs then they would have to buy new furniture and white goods and maybe a new front door to stop it getting cold in the winter
  19. are you talking about the tax d habitation bill, where is the tax d habitation bill normally sent france address or uk address
  20. Is it free to sell on ebay, because I thought it was, no one has ever told me you have to pay to advertise an item when they say they have brought and sold and made loads of money on ebay, I wanted to sell my lcd moniter today and it says ive got to pay £1,50 to advertise the item
  21. Was the show the american version of are you smarter than a 10 year old and was she a school teacher, If she was im suprised she thought europe was a country  
  22. Maybe you and the seller could agree on a  low price to pay in euros in france, lets say 10% of the real cost, then the rest could be paid back in the UK from your bank account to the sellers bank account, plus the seller would pay less CGT on the sale of the property which would save them some money
