thanks for all the advice have visited all web sites recommended. My husband is now freaking out about the SPIDERS! in his trade (air con and refrigeration) he is worried he will come across them frequently and is not sure if he could deal with them! sounds silly but i think it is really putting him off moving. Does anyone have any information or advise i could use to reasure him???

Have you tried try them, there's people who are in the same situation as you at the mo and there are people who have already moved and been living there for a while. There's other links on there as well. Hope this helps a bit more.

Hi Karen,

Your husband's skills are assessed by Vetassess. I am assuming that you are in the UK. TRA will not accept your assessment
