Downstairs renovation of listed cottage - General building job in Cranfield

There may be a service valve on the pipe work that serves the existing tap , if there is not then its advised to request a full bore one is installed upon the new outside tap being fitted along with an internal drain off valve so to avoid this issue in the future re maintenance.

a competent plumber should be able to locate the boundary water meter & isolate the existing out side tap & then be able to re new your existing stop cock as well , hope this helps & regards ric
Unless you are a detached property that is isolated many drains are shared this could be the cause & you could be looking for something that is unrelated to your own property,

hope this helps , regards ric
Sometimes the float valves can calcify & stick in hard water areas, with being out side & not in frequent use this is quite common. the valve may just need attention or a replacement , a competent plumber will be able to diagnose the issue via a maintenance visit ,
hope this helps , regards ric

A maintenance visit will be required , a competent time served plumbing & heating engineer will fire up the heating system & close each radiator apart from 2 on the 1st & ground floor on the system , if its diagnosed at cold spots then on older systems this is where sludge builds up & restricts the flow & return course of the heating through the radiators , air locks are also common once works & alterations have been carried out , automatic air vents on towel warmers are recommended to aid the air escaping from the system as towel warmers are normally the higher points of heating systems on existing installations , a competent plumbing & heating engineer will be able to diagnose & remedy this , if a new system then its more than likely an air lock , the heating will need to be rebalanced after the remedial works have been actioned , hope this helps
