Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
THey say that the chimney is angled and in danger of falling down.However the builder says it is angled but is not an emergency and will have been like that for years probably.
The council said they had been round to inspect the property nd take a photo and a structural engineer has based his decision on the photograph and google maps.
I haven't received anything in writing by the council. Do they need to issue a dangerous structure notice to me? I only received a badly spelt text message.
Doing the works is not a problem it's the time scale they have given for what is not, by professionals, classed as dangerous.
The structural engineer from the council hadn't even been to see the property he judged it off a photograph.
Any advice would be appreciated.
So just to confirm (and that's it!) what classes as a formal notice and what would happen if they did the work without a formal notice?
I have only received a text message (illiterate) and had phone conversations.
