I am taking down one wall and “moving” another. My surveyor's report, written at the start of Feb cost £500 and HJP costs were £705. Building regs, solicitor's costs to instruct the freeholder's solicitor to issue a license will bring my total closer to 2k I expect.
I am still to complete the paperwork trail but nearly there.
20th August update
solicitor’s costs from the freeholder to issue the license is £1161.60 and may be more depending on adjustments. If I appoint a solicitor to read through the license draft that’s another 1k.
I forgot to mention the need for pre and post works plans which and architect has to draw up and provide insurance for; kerching again.
Not sure why I needed my own surveyor to stick a hole in the ceiling for the freeholder to send another surveyor? I would have hoped the freeholder would have had some construction details to refer to.
Quite a paper trail.
Just read Henry’s update too and not looking forward to the additional billing from RQRC and Habitare. This is costing more than my kitchen!
