Agent's note I
In 1997 underpinning was carried out to the kitchen with works described at the time as 'partial minipiled underpin of external walls of the kitchen'. This was carried out after an extended period of consideration by the insurers who decided that it should be carried out as a longterm measure to prevent any further movement. The vendors are not aware of any recurrence of the issue. They have always been able to insure the building.

Strictly by prior arrangement with the Sole Agents Anker & Partners.

"We were having a stressful time trying to sell our house. We left our old agency and went to Anker. Jeremy Vasey was on the case and very supportive. Emails were replied to quickly. Towards the end Jeremy went out of his way to make sure things were proceeding with our sale. "
