Does Multi occupancy/HMO affect property value?

I forgot to add, if there is a question of value then you will need a specialist surveyor to assess the loft space to have any basis for negotiation, they might also advise on whether you have any material claim on it

Was there a leak? I think it says heavy rain...Carpets are contents and so the tenant's responsibility unless some negligence can be determined... Read More
