No you told him to bodge it up and pass the cra p to the next person.
lets suppose he pays £4k to do the roofIt's even your attitude here that's quite telling, you know you're screwing these people over and gloating about it.
People shouldn't have given you any assistance.
I patched the spots with some roof sealant, bitumin type stuff I think it was, about 2 years ago or so but it's gone beyond that now, the boards absolutely are totally shot.
It think it's probably a good shout to just take up the existing, put down some new boards and re-cover, leaving the existing insulation in place. ie, it's basically a big repair. I feel in the same park as Notch7, weighing up the situations if I spend £3k - £5k for example on a new roof, I am not going to get that reflected in the sale, the true reflection will probably be the quick cut and cover solution. The buyer won't give a crap about me or my money or my family, the same argument will be had whether I spend £1k on the roof or £5k on the roof for the purpose of them trying to pull my price down only for them to know they will pull the whole extension down before long anyway.
If it's a roof that lasts even 5 - 7 years, I have not done anyone any injustice at all.
I appreciate all the inputs.
lets suppose he pays £4k to do the roof
and the buyer doesnt pay the increase in value
will you be complaining the buyer is screwing him over??
If necessary repairs cost x amount then they should be deducted from the value of the property on the home report,
thats just a valuation survey for mortgage purposesunfortunately most surveyors do little more than eyeball a property and apply a value in line with the surrounding area.
a legal requirement in Scotland not EnglandAny property I've ever heard of being sold in the past 10 years has had a home report done
Eh?!?Sorry, I can’t stand this attitude … if you know the flat roof has failed then get it fixed properly, either that or admit it to the buyer and deduct the true cost of the repair from the sale price.
Trying to patch over things to leave some poor family with the additional cost of removing your bodge job to do the thing right is a big part of the problem with the housing market in this country.
This idea that buyers drives sellers prices down is fantasy, in which part of the country is this happening in the current climate?
