    How much for a toilet to be put in?

    Would like to know how much it would cost for a toilet to be put in?

    Just like a rough idea,I'm not even sure if it's possible cos of the connection with the water supply,pipes and so on.
    Just house viewing and lately been finding houses with en suites from a bedroom and no toilets elsewhere in the house.
    It's not ideal to have a visitor and for them to have to go through any bedroom to go toilet,and if I chose the en suite bedroom for a child who will be eventually a teenager,bet they want some privacy too and wouldn't want us the parents or their bro/sis trailing through either.
    I'm just simply speculating and wouldn't know if there was a suitable space for it,and if possible etc,just want to know what a rough cost would be.

    Thanks.

    I've not been to view this one in particular I'm thinking of but some other houses I've been in had en suites and it makes it impossible buy if no toilet,unless I can have 1 put in but depends on cost,it would have to come off what I offer.

    Depends on whether you can put the thing against an outside wall and have easy access to a soil drain. If you can't, it will be expensive. But if you can't you could aways install a macerator, which is noisy, but can go almost anywhere.

    My advice ... consult a plumber. :thumbsup:

    If I liked the house then I would need to send a plumber round to see what options were,but I don't know if the seller would be that flexible....if I not put in an offer.
    I'm hoping the listing is patchy on this 1 and they forgotten to say there is a seperate toilet elsewhere,no floorplans so can't tell by that.
    My partner's mum said we should def see it though.

    It can be a straight forward job but the advice to consult a plumber is sound, call a local one to the property as he will probably have an idea of the houses in his area and maybe even worked in one. They will give a guestimate from this if they do know them...:thumbsup:

    Might be a bit hard to comprehend but estate agents are not actually responsible for what is or isnt contained within a house. They are only agents for the sale of property (as the name suggests)

    OP as others have said. It will be cheaper to installl a toilet if you are near to an outside wall with soil pipes but a friend of mine did install a macerator type toilet once. Issue here is that if toilet will not be located near outside wall you will have piping running through the property that you will need to take into account. Also think ahead in terms of maintenance, should the need arise. If there were a problem (blockage etc) with a macerator toilet ,what would costs be to sort problem.

    Aye what is easier to comprehend though is that they will know if the house has a main bathroom

    I've called,they said the shower room,it's seperate and you don't need to walk into any of the bedrooms to get into the shower room,and the shower room does have a toilet.
    Phew,there been so many houses with little things wrong,least that solves that.

    I need keep all that in mind for any others that we will be going to view as there been a few with no spare toilet.
    Luckily this house I've been thinking of at mo, does infact have another toilet available other than the en suite,the estate agent on phone as actually been inside the house.

    I hope so too,I've been to see 11 houses so far.
    I did really like 1 and it was on for £155K - £170K but when I went to view,the owner was in and he was very rude as we leaving and said don't put in any silly offers,I'm taking no more than £160K,why have it at £155K then.
    Another tells me he only just put the price up again in last mth and it was on market for £140-160K.
    £155K was really my limit with this house,and I've only had £2K leftover for any legal fees and like surveyors etc.

    No I know. Saw yours thanks. Probably some street wise kid or someone attempting to be?

    How many of the houses that you have viewed had only toilets in the ensuites and nowhere else? Ive never heard of this before either. Didnt realise it was so common.

    I dont think it is common. But I have seen a few on the property auction programmes. Maybe thats why they are being sold at auction and not via the estate agent route. They are not designed that way but have had someone bodge a job at some point.

    I've seen think 2 but I know of other houses like this and i don't think it's ideal for us with kids.

    Then there was another house I saw afew days ago, with an ensuite but that had a toilet downstairs at the back of the kitchen,I might gone for that house even but it was a free for all with the back garden,it was a public walkthrough for anyone with homes in that row,and I couldn't be doing with gates left open with small children,rabbit loose in garden,I do want some privacy.
    I actually prefer no downstairs toilet at all and for a toilet to be upstairs as it's long way out of bed in the middle of the night if only downstairs loo.

    I'm ok with the next 1 there is another toilet just not been mentioned.
