Rehabilitating your home without going bust | Part 2

Last week we were analysing the fact that due to the current crisis the housing market has stalled, but instead the reforms sector of the industry has revitalized.

 

To have some building works, plumbing, carpentry or decoration is consolidated as the perfect alternative for those who want to change house without moving from home. In the past three years, the demands for these services have increased as much as their offers, whose ads have multiplied in mailboxes, lampposts and bus stops.

 

The protagonists of this dynamic boom are on the one hand, people who thought changing houses and cannot do it; secondly, the construction professionals who have lost their jobs and have opted to work independently. So, with so much choice, who can you trust? When is the best time to initiate reforms? Where to start? In short, what things must be taken into account before undertaking a home rehab?

Well this is a follow up of my first article on the subject.

 

Documentation and taxes.

Written budgets, payment vouchers, detail work planning and proper written bills are, in principle, a guarantee of peace of mind for the client. Of course, this is not a foolproof method, and this also means that if someone does not offer these services is a dreadful professional. But the truth is that the better the job is documented, the easier it will be possible to settle any future disagreements and the higher protection one will obtain in case of any problems.

 

Comprehensive budget.

It is advisable to require any bids in writing, and the bid should be as explicit as possible with regards to quantity, quality and price and should include a description of materials amount of labour to be used. As an example of what we are saying see below a description of a simple window replacement.

 

Another important aspect is to spell out the date of commencement and termination of the required services. The document should also include payment proposal and identification data of the company. In addition, do ask as many questions as you need to be perfectly satisfied of how, when and what is and not included in the job, and most important do all that before work starts, beware of the "unforeseen problems have arisen" is an argument that may be true for almost any circumstance.

Next week we will provide a full translation of this bill of quantities and specification together with a full glossary so that it will be very practical when dealing with repairs and rehabs here in Spain.

 

So my friends...Avery Happy New Year to you all and hope you will carry on reading my articles in 2015 (If my editor agree of course :-)
