Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green,
The night above the dingle starry,
Time let me hail and climb
Golden in the heydays of his eyes,
And then the lousy feckers built another house on the side garden.
“PLEASE NOTE THE GARAGE AND THE SITE ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE SALE. THE GARAGE WILL BE KNOCKED AND TWO METRES OF A SIDE ENTRANCE WILL REMAIN. WE ARE ONLY SELLING A SEMI DETACHED PROPERTY WITH SIDE ENTRANCE”
Seems pretty clear to me. However I don’t fancy their chances of selling without the garage or GARDEN (‘site’? Yeah right)
If you are keen to pursue a particular house prospect - it’s always worth taking a quick look into the planning permissions for the dwelling site and its neighbours as one way of checking if larger sites are to be split.
No point in getting fussed over ‘normal’ extensions but a lot of larger sites were regarded as fair game for ‘two outa one’ exercises in recent years - while reasonable densification of some sites may be OK a lot of these sub-sites are quite unsuitable for a full family dwelling type and the design is usually hideous.
Planning Online is quick and easy for most Local Authority websites - search by area or map - you will normally be very kindly helped if you decide to physically drop in to the planning office.
EA turns up in brand new merc, as the house viewer walks to the front door with the EA, the EA decides to mention briefly that the house does not come with the garage or side garden included, and that if you decide to buy you will be living next door to a building site.
Obviously viewer told EA where to go, turned around and left.
This particular EA does come across as a bit of a cowboy /chancer .
Sure there all at it… I viewed the following www.daft.ie/1544399 last week. And when I asked the EA when booking the viewing why so cheap for a 6 bed house, I was told that there was some SLIGHT water damage due to a burst pipe last winter! When we viewed the place we found that every ceiling in the ground floor had collapsed resulting in what would be about 40K’s work to repair.
I asked the EA why he told us it was only SLIGHT damage when I asked on the phone to which he replied - Sure I have to get people to view it and make their own minds up.
