    Hi .. a friend is looking at buying a place but I noticed that out back the neighbours dormer is sloping down at a serious angle? Is this structural failure or something? Or is this normal?
    Thanks for any help

    Ask if a party wall notice was issued for the works.It looks like the left side of the dormer was raised too high as you are looking at it.Do the windows close properly?

    looks like the first floor is also sloping - not an optical illusion from the photograph angle perspective ???

    Infact all tilted, going by that image, including house next to the dormer

    Use street view to check the front. See if it's replicated; or just the pic.
