Re: Building inspection and renovation cost estimate prior to purchasing old chalet

And some people definitely do NOT!

Just come back from Surrey (UK) and its very heart is being torn apart- all the lovely old houses being pulled down, their gardens ripped up- to build massive ugly houses with not a blade of grass or flower in sight. Sadly the tax structure encourages this, as there is no VAT on new build, but VAT on improvements and extensions, in the UK.

Some of us love old houses- our dates from Elizabethan times. It has a heart and a soul- and so much history. You can never ever 'build' that.

Would love to hear from IMCB and whether we went ahead and bought- and how he got on. Are you there?
