I went mad with apathy and spent most of the day taking up the laminate flooring installed by the previous owners. They also did a 'quick coat of gloss' over most of the skirting boards and door frames, without any sanding to key the new paint ... white 'sails' of paint all over the floor, so more sanding tomorrow [after I remove the bitumen coated plywood that was used as an improvised damp proof mechanism.
I really envy the people who start decorating on Friday evening and have the whole room finished by Sunday dinner time [perhaps they just do the 'quick coat of gloss' routine ...]
Ah, there's the answer...."previous owners".
Give it a quick coat of paint so that it looks good enough to sell, then it's someone else's problem!
