Hi.

I had found a derelict property in the midlands and worked hard for several months to find and investor.

I was going to refurbish the property and let it out. The investor was going to partially fund for a high share amount.

The property I had done all the work for has fallen through. I can no longer go ahead with the current property.

However, the investor is still on board if I can get another property, ideally in the midlands.

A family ran company has several small BNBs, we have been running them quite well.
We are looking to expand and feel if we do not do it now it could be years before we get another opportunity.
We are looking for at least 1 or 2 partners to come on board to help with the expansion.
We have an exisiting brand, customer base, reputation and suppliers.
What we want is a strong person or team who can help to increase our BNBs across the region.

Hi.

I have some inheritence which I would like to invest.

I ideally would like to buy some land and develop a property to leaseout.  I have studied and worked in hospitality so might be interested in developing a property I could then run as a business for a short while.

Another option is to by a derelict or void to refurbish.

 

I have already spoken to a solicitor and ready to go but have little experience so interested in hearing from or partnering with anyone similar. Who has more experience in the matter.

It has not been possible to connect your call.

Hi I am using a VOIP server to receive business calls.

However I keep getting errors when calling such as it has not been possible to connect your call, even though the number works fine on my personal phone.

Is it a problem with my VOIP, maybe their software is having problems.

Can anyone advise if they have a business number and do they use VOIP?

Thanks

How much does an architect usualy get paid or what is a typical architects salary in uk?

I have just read an article on an Architects websites saying that about a third of those studying architecture and around 20% qualified architects had faced stress or anxiety, mostly related to debt or income. The website then goes on to state that a majority of architects surveyed had either considered or applied for payday loans, I'm not sure what they consider to be a majority.

I’m about to set up shop in the hospitality sector and looking for a designer/developer to design my outlet.
I had been the owner/manager of a small bar for 2 years, at the end of last year I had put in an offer at a new location opening my second bar. This was shortly after called off.
I have recently been granted a load so as soon as allowed I will be opening my second bar.

I have my own restaurant and would like to connect with others in this sector.
I have furloughed my staff, and temporarily closed up. I did consider deliveries at the start of lockdown but did not have the measures in place to maintain social distance in my kitchen and also was struggling to get a high level of orders.
Just wondering how others are coping in the same situation and what you are planning next.

Looking for someone or an agency who can manage our display stands/units at upcoming exhibitions.
We have recently had manufactured our product and had planned on attending several exhibtions during this summer, however in February this was called off due to concerns relating to Covid-19.
We have temporarily delayed launching our product but with recent relaxations on lockdown rules we may be looking at demonstrating our product at several major exhibitions during October/November for Christmas sales.

I’m a qualified/experience joiner and work my day job for a construction company. In my spare time I sell furniture online.
I had a custom order, they wanted some wood cut to a specific size. We agreed and they paid through paypal.
I dropped the wood off to a drop off point which I thought was their office or something but could just be a collection point.

It seems every other person my age at college has expensive phone, high end laptop, nice clothes etc.
I have an old dated phone and a cheap laptop. I’m at college and desperate for work. I’m not lazy or unskilled. I do all my college work and find the lessons easy but I have no idea how to get a job. I have no experience and hardly anything to put on a CV.
Where do all the people I see at college with new phones and expensive clothes get money from is it given to them by parents or are they earning it for themselves because I am desperately struggling to find any job.

Hi, I am new to importing so would like some advice on whether or not I should be buying my equipment internationally and what I should be looking out for.
At the start of the year we was set to fit out our new facilities. It’s just a shell at the moment.
We got some quotes on fitting new equipment throughout the premises, supply and installation.

Hi,
I am self employed working in the carpentry industry.
Shortly after lockdown began, I carried on some of my works using my garage as a small workshop, previously I carried out works in the clients workshop.
Now it has been close to 3 months that I have been working in my garage. It’s to the point now that my garage is majority work equipment and material.

A business partners last name is Picard.
We’re an electrical/hardware manufacturer.
My concern is that if we name our self after Picard, my business partners name, we might get some trouble from Star Trek, one of the leading characters is called Jean Luc Picard.
In concept, I don’t feel as though we would have any problems calling our business Picard Electrics or something along the lines of that, but if we start showing pictures of drones people might think we are infringing on Star Trek.

Just before lockdown I agreed with a client to produce some floor plans.
This meant surveying the site, taking measurements and creating a digital floor plan which I would send to them.
I attended the site before lockdown but because of restrictions couldn’t complete measurements of all areas.
We agreed that I would return at a later point to finish measurements. Then lockdown happened and I have not been able to return to site.

Hi
My friend recommended this website to me.
I work in construction and looking to connect with anybody who is in the property development sector.
For now I am looking to continue working my current day job but in the future would like to have my own business in the property development industry so looking to get insights or just have discussions with people who can relate.

Thanks

I recently completed a course using CAD. I have used software throughout school as I had a friend who managed to get some software. So found the course really natural and I don’t have any problems using cad to produce building simulations, plans etc.
But now what do I do.
I don’t really have much professional experience. I did 1 week work experience whilst at school for a construction company but only briefly had any exposure to CAD. I have a portfolio but it’s just for personal projects, nothing professional.

Hi, just before lockdown I registered a business with companies house.
I had an appointment with a bank to open a business account but because of lockdown I never went. I was going to apply online but wanted to go in to ask for some advice.

I have recently been looking at a 5000 square foot storage. It will be used primarily to store stock.
Most of the stock will likely be labelled onsite and left at the collection point usually by myself but also might be on occasions somebody else. There will be no other works going on. Only loading and unloading stock and on occasions labelling the products.
The landlord has valued the building at £800,000, or so. However I think this is the building/infrastructure and not contents/stock.
