    Hi Guys,

    Boght a house over a year ago and whilst doing some other works I relaised how unsafe (I think) the removal of a chimney from a first floor bedroom is.

    The survey when we bought the house did not mention this.

    I am currently in the process of building it back up for support along with Building regulations for a stove.

    Am I entitled to make a claim for the cost of building it back up?

    Very likely not, what kind of survey was it? If anything other than a structural survey then no chance.

    Ignore those previous p*sstakers - You can apply to the House of Lords along with the Roman Catholic Church UK branch - they`re trying to get compo since Henry V111 demo`d their monastries
