Found 18th Jan
hi I am in process of buying a property, the property has a few covenants in place like no building at the front side, no building within 8 feet of the boundaries, plus it's a in a conservation area, at the time we agreed sale price we didn't know about these, plus the main thing that's going too cost quite alot is the Insulation of the walls and roof, as the property hasnt got any cavities. we weren't given the EPC rating at the time and are considering too ask the estate agent too ask vendors reduced the agreed price is this fair or not. the main extra costs are mainly to do with having the need for planning permission even for uPVC windows and fences need repairing this is again under the covenants that they need to be approved etc. the total extra work is likely too be around 10% of the agreed sale price. just bit worried Incase sellers say no and say they don't want sell to us for being too fussy.
