Both flats are unoccupied.
I believe the situation is that that there is one title number being the freehold of the building.
Also as I understand it no leases have been granted in respect of either flat.
We would intend to convert the two flats into one house.
I hope this helps.
Thank you Al
The estate agent has suggested a possible way to overcome this is to knock a door through from one flat to the other, now, thus making the property one. This would be through a supporting wall and would need an RSJ, so not a small job. It would however need to be done anyway to convert the property into one.
They are suggesting that a prospective purchaser might do this to overcome the problem.
I meant to say do you think that knocking a door though to make it one property would overcome the problem of mortgage finance?
