I too have an outrageous major works estimate for works which are about to start and after reading all the comments on this forum am concerned about the quality of the work and whether the actual cost will turn out to be even more.
I am the leaseholder for a street property (a conversion with 3 flats where 2 are with private leaseholders). Can anyone provide more information on purchasing the freehold? I have no idea how much this might cost or how to go about this. If anyone has tried this I’d love to hear your experiences.
