AGENTS NOTE We are advised by the vendor that the property suffered structural movement approximately 15 years ago and we are told that remedial works were carried out the early part of 2001 but unfortunately the vendor cannot supply any documentation other than a letter that we hold on file from him advising us of the works carried out. As a result of this any prospective purchasers would have to satisfy themselves of the structural condition of the property by having a survey carried out.
