Purchase and Repair Scheme– Harrow, Middlesex, HA1

This scheme consisted of the purchase and repair of 5 x 1 bedroom flats, 2 x 2 bedroom four person units and 3 x 3 bedroom 5/6 person units for a Housing Association in Middlesex having received Local Authority funding. Additional finance was provided by the Housing Association to enhance the unit mix.

Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors were instructed to locate and recommend potential properties to meet the client and end users’ brief.  Following successful Housing Association purchase negotiations Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors carried out acquisition surveys, advising on condition and refurbishment costs.

Within the project the Housing Association introduced one of their own properties, a large house in multiple occupation.  The residents were re-housed and planning approval obtained for conversion into self-contained flats.   Planning, Building Regulation and Party Wall services were provided by Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors.

Subsequently we provided Contract Administration through to project completion.
