Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

Make sure you catch up with two of our reg­u­lar colum­nists this week. Janie Walker’s Boat Peo­ple is on page 37. Janie is grad­u­ally get­ting back into civil­i­sa­tion mode af­ter her ad­ven­ture last year sail­ing around the Pa­cific. She’s deal­ing with some press­ing ques­tions – what to now she’s back in Porirua and whether she should em­bark on an­other grand sail­ing ad­ven­ture, and if so, where. I’m pick­ing read­ers will salute her choices.

And Alan Knowsley’s Le­gal Mat­ters on page 42 deals with build­ing con­tracts. Many of us have em­barked on some sort of build­ing pro­ject and will know about the prob­lems as­so­ci­ated with find­ing good work­men and with try­ing to co-or­di­nate the plas­terer, elec­tri­cian, car­pet-layer and plumber.

Be­sides that mine­field, there are other traps and Le­gal Mat­ters dis­cusses the im­por­tance of hav­ing a good con­tract in place with the ma­jor work­men. It can cer­tainly save a lot of heartache later if the con­tract is sound.
