    Didn't get the one with questionable piping. Far from being sold though - survey could make it a no go for the perspective buyer. My original offer was c. 10% over asking, but revised it down a bit when I woke up this morning because of the advice here. Can't believe they haven't supplied any paperwork or info to prospective buyers. On to the next one. 3 offers now at or over asking now and been unsuccessful. On 2 of them, built real rapport with the sellers too + neighbours when doing due diligence, went back for unofficial second viewings but money talks I guess

    @Silly_Savage erm didn't really notice anything temperature wise to be honest. But now I think about it, that is a good point. Doors back would be one option or a full opening up like the neighbouring House. The dodgy door with the pipe would probably stay if the former, and the window which is there repairing.

    Estate agent hasn't send through the surveys so my offer isn't as high as it would have been. On the internal kitchen wall that needs a building control cert - the agent said 'it will have an RSJ otherwise it would have fallen down'. Without that paperwork, my offer will be retracted in short order

    @Sheppz ah okay makes sense. So the would be doors (original double doors out to the garden) aren't currently installed but could be easily put back in. So you'd need planning and to comply with building regs to do it properly and fully open the space?

    @Howard they're sending over a full building survey from when the neighbour had their extension so will check that, and if successful in my offer my full survey / solicitors would hopefully pick up on that? 2 up 2 down so yeah I imagine thin kitchen and the rest of it would have been a dining room.

    @pryally so it's not separated inside, see pic here, and I'd want to open it over more as in the neighbour's house. It has undefloor hearing so might tick the separate box.

    Rightmove ad was here if anyone wants to point things out. Missed out on 2 recently, and made an offer on this one

    Edit also @cozey cheers both. Suppose could get it looked at down the line and proper roof put on/ integrate kitchen once saved back up

    @Howard even though it's built with bricks? Where does the line get drawn? Next door probably had planning (was inside his kitchen after my viewing - solid guy and a cyclist - due diligence went well!) Their extension was done in 2013 and this one's conservatory was 2007.

    @Gewürzt think London people and stamp duty holiday. I only moved in September though (from the North) so can't comment really over the last year as only been looking for 2-3 months

    When you put an offer in, normal to attach AIP I've seen but if the deposit is more than say 10%, would they expect to see evidence there and then? Or is that personal info not to share unless you have to?
