Wow... what a shocker.  The kitchen looks like an abbatoir whilst the stairs and mezzanine  are positively dangerous, aren't there building regulations for staircases?

Looks like these fail on both counts... however in my limited experience solicitors don't always notice such things.

it'd need a surveyor to point it out ... and then you'd probably be advised to buy an insurance certificate to cover you for when you come to sell it.

Yep. The beds and white everywhere gives it away. Plus how they have concentrated totally on the inside whilst the outside looks like a building site.

In Heywood? They've mistyped the price and stuck an extra 0 (or two) on it.

I worked in Heywood once, bit like Bradford only darker.

Just a thought, it says good for an equestrian centre, in Heywood, so lots of grooming going on.

Building regs only apply to stairs that lead to rooms.   You can have a ladder to an uninhabited storage space, like a loft.  Up to you if you store a bed, wardrobe and number 3 son up there.

Since when did the definition of semi rural include a motorway in the back garden? A million fucking quid... should buy a whole square mile of Oldham for fucks sake :)

And still have £999,999 to spend on something worthwhile.

Perhaps the EA is pricing in the value  of the new motorway services you could build on the back garden?

i like picture 16, the interogation room, as seen in the 70's on the sweeney and every cop based series ever since.

just needs a reel to reel or one of those old push button double tape decks on the table, and we can get on with bad cop, phsyco cop type questioning.

(without a solicitor of course). - always made me wonder why they ask for a solicitor, what possible use could a prostitute be to you when youve been arrested and questioned.

ditto, plus where it is would be considered a richly enriched area. A round enriched areas of west yorkshire you get 2 kinds of enrichment - shit hole slums for the proles and plebs, or gated off richly enriched areas (note gold+black painted iron work), very much like this example. Note the more traditional houses in the vicinity.

PS. i wouldnt offer 950K for the whole of heywood+middleton+oldham+cheetham hill side of mancs.
