BUILDING SURVEYING – RESIDENTIAL BUILDING SURVEY
Broadstone, Forest Row, Sussex RH18 5BX
Construction Value/Contract Period
Building survey of large detached house split into self-contained bedsits and/or flats, plus a garage for purchase and subsequent refurbishment /conversion into a single use home.
The aim of the report was to provide detailed advice on the property’s condition, identify the risk of potential or hidden defects plus recommendations as to any other actions or advice were required before committing to purchase. A key point made in the report was that it had been converted into separate units in 2000 with local planning consent and to return it into one house would require formal planning approval and consent may not be forthcoming bearing in mind that smaller accommodation is now preferred under current local Government planning guidelines.
