    Thanks Woody, the flat was purchased from a family friend and they had not been made aware when the property was sold. I don't believe I received the right information from the management company as they did not disclose the major works - I might pick this up with a solicitor to see if I have...

    Thanks both for the replies, I have ordered the carbon brushes https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274754392520 as this seems to solve the issue for many with the same issue.

Obviously it’s a big hit and something I could have completely avoided but lesson learnt...
