I would be careful about buying into an uncompleted apartment scheme where the company is in receivership. Management companies, common areas and elevators to worry about. A house is a different mater as you can draw a line around what you own. You then only have to look at adoption of the main roads. The management of the open space should be a minor matter in comparison.

Hi , Its a shell im buying , there is no lifts in the apartment block ( 4 apartments in my block ) . the management company is setup , and the actual site is 80% finished with contacts set out by the bank ( seller ) to finish everything .

Yep BVI knows what he is talking about when it comes to this sort of thing. You'd be mad to buy a shell apartment in this environment. It will only continue to drop in value.

You are unwise to buy a shell apartment in any environment as you become responsible for additional costs that you are currently unaware of.

i hear everybody loud and clear , , and in defence of me even thinking about buying this apartment :

They are finished as a shell , ie all electrics finished , heating finished including radiators ( just needs a boiler fitted ) , all plastering/floors finished .

So its a blank canvas , needs kitchen fitted , bathroom fitted , doors fitted , carpets fitted ... move in .
Theres only 4 to a block , all got separate doors .

It , to me seems a good location , a bit better that most apartment sites as in its a small development , lots of parking and quite private . ( not like the belfast multi storey blocks ) .

Im told the site will be finished ( for all it needs ) by the bank and contracts are in place . this will be confirmed in final contract on purchase .

And for reference im buying for 55,000 . 00 .

Like i say i havnt bought it yet , still thinking about pulling out , loosing heart in the place , , but it was going to be a home , mortgage free , new start , with few overheads .
