Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Let me see if I can help. As I understand it your daughter has not purchased the property yet and as such she should not be entering into any agreements concerning the property with neighbours. The fact is that if there are works to be done and if she is potentially liable then she should potentially renegotiate the cost of these and the purchase price with the seller. The list should be provided to her conveyancing solicitor and sent to the seller. She should not be complying with the ultimatum as she does not own the property at this time. Happy to discuss and please rate positive.
I see. Well I think that your daughter is perfectly correct that she would need full details of the plan (not just a list of work), confirmation of planning permission and costings (if any relate to her). Your daughter may also need a surveyors report before she makes any decisions. She should not be rushed into making any decisions unless and until she has fuller details. She should not be bullied into making any decisions.
I hope that answers your question. Please ask anything as necessary.
I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you.
1. Yes. She is not under an obligation to negotiate if she does not want to at this time.
2. Yes. Because she needs all of the details, costings etc
3. I would only speak to the owner of the flat not a potentially buyer at this time.
4. I would simply say that you are not willing to engage in any further communications at this time as you do not own the property and as such I need to consider my position.
