Not sure how much work will need doing. The bathroom has recently been upgraded, but kitchen will need doing, although bet it's newer than mine! The garage is pretty derelect, but daughter doesnt think can get even her car down the side of the house, so as has a good front drive plus gates, not a problem.
She's budgeted for a new kitchen, appliances, fitting an alarm & knows that some replacement dble glazed units will be needed, but can wait. Carpets looked newish she said & all neutral.
I suspect the back fencing may need replacing too. Also noticed the leaning front fence with a privet hedge pushing at it at the the front. No footpath at front though, just a verge, so no liability problems, I hope.
There seems to be some confusion, even contradiction about the damp proof course. The usual really. We need to find a decent builder in that area & also someone to do any roof repairs, clean out guttering etc.
She's got it at a very good price & the chance to really add value. This is what her savings are for! Let's hope no real horrors turn up, as so far the report isnt that bad. Understandably she panicked a bit, but OH will talk her through it over the hol. We shall see.
Right off to cook. J.
