No, not me unfortunately. We're stuck where we are for now. Friends are buying (first time) - survey has shown up three things: Bay Roof needs replacing (single bayed Vicky Terrace), chimney needs re-pointing and surprise, surprise, some damp. They're at the "offer accepted" stage and are not sure how to proceed next.
Will builders quote on this kind of stuff (seems a bit more speculative than a normal pricing up visit). Could they estimate over the phone? Just after some advice on their behalf really - they're under the impression that I know this shit. Little do they know Ta.
