Buying a Non-Traditional Ex-Council Property Built with Concrete?
Thank you for all the replies to my previous posts.
I am in the final stages of buying a 5 bed property in Bristol. The house is a1950's, ex-council property, classed as a Non-traditional CHAD.
I have checked with the council and it is concrete not brick. As far as they are concerned the property is of good build quality and is not likely to suffer from concrete rot.
To be on the safe side I intend to arrange for a structural survey to be carried out, to check for any asbestos in the walls and guttering, and also to check the integrity of the walls, etc.
My question is whether a 5 bed room, semi detached, concrete property with a flying freehold is a wise buy in the long term? Any suggestions or experience would be highly valued.
Thanks in advance.
