    Can you recommend a London-based handyman?

    Apologies if this isn't the right section - I've not quite got to grips with Ning yet!
    I was hoping Vanessa or anyone else with props in London could recommend a good handyman - I just need someone to hang a door, wire in a smoke alarm, replace some ceiling tiles and a few other bits in my new property. Stuff I should be able to do myself really!
    I also need to get gas and electrical safety tests done - are there any companies you can recommend? Googling turns up loads of them but I have no way of telling which would be the best.
    Many thanks in advance for any help!

    With regards to handyman, contact my letting agent in London, Adam Powell at adam@csenseworks.co.uk or on and I am sure he will be able to recommend someone. He can also advise about EPC's, gas safety etc.

    Hi Rob,
    We have a very good builder / decorator / handyman who we use for all our work except electrics and gas. Vanessa has replied on the electrics and gas but if you need a reliable person for other work let me know, he's based in Croydon but can travel for larger jobs.

    Thank you both for the kind advice.
    David, if you could send me the details of your chap that'd be really useful.
    Vanessa, I'll definitely be giving Homecert Direct a call and making contact with Adam. They look like a great lettings agency, you don't see that kind of transparency and clearly-quoted prices very often!
