What a blow that was. Writing those four short paragraphs in the prescribed way seemed one of the hardest things we faced. He gave us lots of information on checking the financial stability and credentials of contractors and made us aware of other pitfalls. In a way that gave us a bit of respite but once the news was out it was full steam ahead to meet the 6 month deadline for work to start, which we just managed, inspite of the bats!!
