I put a message in a local ( Glasgow) newsgroup about suppliers of
laminate flooring and someone suggested that there was to be new
legislation about preventing lminate ,tiling etc floors in flatted
buildings because of complaints from neighbours living below.
Anyone know anything about this ??

Wouldn't be in the least bit surprised with the current lot in.
The way things are going it will be far simpler to change the statute books
so that things specifically allowed are stated, and everything else is by
definition prohibited and therefore illegal.
You'll probably also find that building regs approval will be required
unless you're a registered, accredited laminate fitter.
Registered trade associations. The closed shop of the 2000's.....
(sorry for the moan - just had to get it off my chest!!!!)

Many flat leases have a clause that says carpet must be used anyway. The
problem is tenants/leaseholders aren't aware of it and/or don't abide by it.
The rumoured legislation could be another north of the border peculiarity.
It's certainly in the lease for my flat, and most others I know of, that
all floors must be carpeted. I would be quite annoyed if the person
upstairs from me put down solid floors and walked around in shoes all
However... my floors are wood laminate. Poorly laid, with no underlay -
straight on top of 1950's tiles.
But... I didn't install them - the previous owner did. And I'm on the
ground floor, so no-one's complaining. :-)
