    You're not too far wide of the mark. I'm a university employee, but not on the teaching/lecturing staff. Most of my career has been in communication engineering, specifically satellite broadcasting and TV, but for the four years since that came to an end I've been sidelined (not by choice) into a form of IT, as it was too expensive for the organisation to get rid of me and there was too much riding on the pension for me to want to go!

    I understand that. The (non) smiley face was a clue!

    The times I have used a solicitor I have been more than happy to pay for their services. However, this has only been a few times buying and selling houses.

    The thing which annoys me every time I move house is the fact that I pay the estate agent twice as much as I pay the solicitor.

    Estate agents handle house sales on a percentage basis whereas I think it should be a flat fee as the (little) amount of work they do is the same regardless of house value.

    There. I've upset all the estate agents now!
