Purchase and Repair Scheme– Hillingdon, Middlesex, UB7

Local authority funding enabled this scheme of 5 x 3 bedroom five person houses to be purchased and repaired for general needs tenants recommended by the Local Authority.  

With a limited repair budget per property and specific repairs required by the funders the search for suitable properties was restricted.  Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors carried out the initial search and assessment of properties, enabling the Housing Association to agree purchase prices with the vendors’ estate agents.  

We completed a detailed survey, costed that highlighted the repairs required to meet the brief.  Using a bespoke schedule of rates enabled the contractor to take possession on the day of purchase completion and carry out the refurbishment works without delay.  Throughout the contract Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors acted as Contract Administrators.
