Dorchester Mews

Does anyone know if this gated development has a residents' association or point of contact?

I live in a flat on the Richmond Road which backs onto it and have noticed a large crack in a wall which can only be viewed externally from the garages in the mews.

Thank you.

Godstone Rd and Surrounding Roads Lease Extension

A number of us in Godstone Road and surrounding roads are interested extending or lease or share of freehold.

Those of us living in maisonettes are now in a position where the length of the lease on our properties is running short creating a potential obstacle if we were to try and sell. In 2007 a number of residents were able to pool together and negotiate a reduced group rate.

We would like to see if there is any interest in forming a similar group. Please 'reply' to this post.

Re: Godstone Rd and Surrounding Roads Lease Extension


We're in the process of buying a maisonette on Kenley Road. The lease will definitely need extending but this isn't something we'd be in a position to do for 2-3 years. I don't know if that would fit with your timescale but either way, we'd be interested to stay in touch on this.

You can email us on

Many thanks

Re: Godstone Rd and Surrounding Roads Lease Extension

Hi you might drum up more interest by leaflet dropping and knocking on doors which is exactly what we did with the previous group. Any reduced rates referred to legal fees and not the premium on the leasehold extension. We had 25 leases go through together. For an indication of what is involved If you need any further information let me know. Maddie

Gravel: How to dispose / find a new home for


We are redoing our garden and will be removing the gravel from it.

What is the best way to dispose of it locally?

Might anyone have use for it?

It is fairly coarse gravel covering an area of approx 8m^2.

Many thanks

I'm new to the area, and am looking to get the wallpaper stripped from my flat and the walls replastered.

Grateful for any suggestions of local services, based on positive experiences at a reasonable cost.

Re: Plastering

Perhaps Matt Dean would be able to help - herewith his phone number 07989378609. As I said earlier he's done some work for me - rescue work when I inadvertently flooded the downstairs loo. Very professional and conscientious, thanks Souwester

Curved skirting boards

Can anyone recommend someone to fit a curved skirting board? It is a really small job but I am afraid our dig skills are not up to the job.
