    There are commonly available insurance packages for a few K a year, which protect landlords and employers of DHs against negligence and property related liabilities. No excuse not to get insurance.

The window fell from the 15th floor, luckily no one was injured. The two unlicenced workmen quickly left and their boss told a licenced and qualified workman employee to take their place, he was told to blame us for having an old window in poor condition.
    The police were called up and he maintained his lie. At the end, we got given a case number and the qualified workman finally admitted and said his boss would pay for a new window. The boss also spoke to us and said he would pay us 1000HKD.
    The tenant wants the window repaired immediately. The boss is saying that it will be at least a week, as he has to order a window. Surely they can be put up temporary board? anyway, l want to ask who could l threaten to contact to let them know l am serious, as it must be a serious situation for the company to employ unqualified and unlicenced workers.
    Their names weren't Dellboy and Rodney were they?
