    Default Labour costs for new kitchen

    Putting in a new kitchen in the BTL, so as to attract better tenants - my normal Polish crew have a big job on and I want to start the rent flowing asap.
    So went with a local (Balham) fitter - he's quoted me £2850 labour for a complete strip out, retile, refloor, repaint, install of kitchen units - basically everything to get the kitchen mint.
    Obviously I'd also have to buy the kitchen units, probably from B&Q or similar.
    Is this a good price, does the panel think?
    I have had cheaper quotes but this guy comes recommended?

    Fixed price or time and motion?

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Howdens are good, as are Homebase and offer some good deals right now.

    We put a Kitchen in, all units, washing machine and hob etc, for £3k from Homebase and it looked very good.

    Depends on size of the kitchen, tiled area, etc obviously whether that's good or not.

    Bit of a moronic post to be honest isn't it sassy?

    I guess being a rich retired academic makes you a bit thick when it comes to these sorts of things.

    Hmmm. It is London and to be fair the old kitchen needs complete gutting - its not just installing the new units but removing old tiling, etc etc.
    Still I guess you're right.

    Doesn't seem so high, if you think that the new kitchen will cost say another £1000 maybe £2000 depending on what you get.

    It could perhaps be slightly cheaper, but tilling can look very shabby if done on the cheap. Then again its a btl so wouldn't bother you quite so much i guess.

    Its a mediumish kitchen.
    And you're right these practical things are beneath me nowadays
    Still I need to get this done so I can have some income flwoing in
