Window Off Hinges On Flat

Recommended Posts

i have made an offer on a flat and it has been accepted. I have been walking past it but i get the feeling that the windows are off the hinges. Every time i walk past the windows are open despite it being vacant. This wasn't highlighted in the home buyers survey and when i viewed it the windows were closed so i didnt try opening it. If i had known the windows were off the hinges id have been extremely uninterested.

Anyone any suggestions. Bit miffed that the survey didnt pick this up

Who would pay for the fixing of this. Is it the freeholder ?

I would email the surveyor to ask whether his survey would have covered this. If he says yes, and they are off, he is responsible. If he says no, and they are, speak to your lawyer about how far locked in you are to the process.
