A bit of a long shot and I understand answers will have to be taken with a pinch of salt but...
I am looking to buy a flat in block for which Southwark Council
are the freeholders. Major works are planned in 2012/13 to include a new roof, concrete repair, brickwork repair, possible asphalt to balconies and lateral mains.
As yet the council don't have any estimated costs for this work.
Has anybody else recently experienced this type of work to give me a bit of an idea about costs.
The flat is in a block of 30 so i realise the costs will be split between the leaseholders, sometimes unevenly depending on the relative sizes of the flats. I am also aware of the section 20 consultation process, so I know estimates will be supplied in due course.
However some kind of a ball park figure before deciding whether or not to continue with the sale would be useful. At the moment I don't even know if my part of the bill will be nearer £1k or £10k!
