Help required please. Just made my first purchase in Manchester in the Whalley Range area. I've bought a one bed flat which is a 1970's build purpose built apartment. I need a bit of work carried out on the place, nothing too substantial, but enough that I'd want someone / a team that know what they're doing.


Main jobs are:

- light fittings changing

- walls lightly reskimmed / smoothed out where required

- plasterboard some ceiling areas

- new bathroom suite fitted and tiling


Should be maximum 7-10 days labour at a push based on previous renovations I've done down south. Can anyone recommend any decent tradespeople in the Manchester area? 


I've had a couple of quotes using mybuilder and rated people and the cost of trades was coming in over double what I've paid down south in the past - I wonder if that's because there's more competition / Eastern European labour available in London? 


Would really, really appreciate any leads. Thanks in advance guys!
