If you are interested in a property it may be time to get some professional involved.
Get a LIM from the local council. Land Information Memoranda (LIM) are comprehensive reports containing all relevant information the Council knows about a property or section. This can include what structures have or haven’t been approved and signed off by the council or potential developments planned for nearby. No one wants to move in the day construction on the new motorway begins just over the fence.
Get a builder in to do a proper inspection. Walk through the property with them. Ask any questions you want. They know what can be done cheaply and what may need to be budgeted. They’ll know what can be easily changed and what can’t.
Ask, ask, ask…
