Loft bedroom records cause problems adding bathroom?

Thanks, John. Yes, we examined the questionnaire, and that seller hadn't made any alterations - he had only had it a year, and the building is over 100 (probably the loft too, though we don't know). Thanks for your help.... Read More

Thanks very much. The valuation report states that it has 2 bedrooms, that the larger bedroom is an attic room (without questioning building regs) and that the property is a "first and second-floor maisonette, probably original", though it's not quite clear what this means, and the box on the form on which it is written is too small to contain the end of the sentence that the surveyor wrote.

There is a lease but we also own the freehold. The solicitor looked at the lease for us and says she can't glean anything from it. I will check with her that it does at least contain a loft space.... Read More

Thank you. The solicitor says they didn't receive a copy of the valuation report anyway. Should they have asked to see it?... Read More
