The company that used the disabled toilets (Celtic Research) is not being filmed. Also the FRC where they were filmed as I am sure you all know has closed.

Fraser's researchers are based in the office so we never have a problem with making phone calls.

I presume that 'inelegance' is a mistranscription of intelligence? ::)

Yes I said "inelegance" referring to the viewer not my self, "intelligence" would have been a better spelling to use.

Sorry but I am very Dyslexic and struggle when spell checks don't pick up my blatant errors.

Hi Neil

Good to see that even the experts have found this site!

100k spent on certificates per year is a pretty staggering sum, but what percentage of these would you say are incorrect, or irrelevant? (Just as a rough gauge for someone who would think twice about spending 100 per year! ;D)

We probably spend about 1/2 the money just on priorities (24 hour certs) of these on some cases 75% may be wrong
Of the 7 ones probably 75% are correct. so may be 30 to 40% off all certs we order endup in the NBG section (No B...... Good).

"cant see any estate values"

This may be due to the scams/cons from people claiming to be 'heir hunters' that happened after the first series was shown.

Thanks Neil, good to know the odds.

I think I'll have to start an NBG section for mine!

Welcome to Rootschat Neil ;D

I loved heir hunters first time round, I'm glad there's to be another series.

Have you thought of putting the unwanted certs on the board for it here ;D ;)

By the way, once you find your way here you're hooked forever ;D ;D ;D
