    Hi Guys

    Sorry to be a pain, but am looking for some help here, as am really lost :(

    I have a small flat which I would like to rent out. Its a very, very basic flat, and the rental income wont be that much. However, the bathroom is in a pretty bad state, as nothing has been done to it for years, and years.

    I have been ringing around trying to get quotes for a new bathroom, and have got wildly varying prices. This is what I want :

    Remove old bath/sink/toilet
    Remove old tiles on wall

    Install new bath/sink/toilet
    New tiles on walls.
    New shower unit plumbed in
    Line put down

    I dont want anything too fancy at all, just the bare basics, so that it is okay to rent out.

    I have had quotes from £3000, down to £1700, inclusive of all parts and labour.

    What would you say is a reasonable price, bear in mind the flat is located in SE-london/border of kent.

    Anyone got any recommendations for any good bathroom fitters ?

    Thanks

    Mehul

    Definatley not £3000. I fitted my own bathroom just 2 years ago,corner bath,sink,toilet and knocked a wall down and moved it further back,fitted shower and extractor fan,tiled walls and fitted flooring and the total cost for materials was £900.So you should be looking at something in the region of £1500-£2000.
