  • Houses split into flats: Advice please

    Some houses that are split into two or more flats. Is buying a flat like this a good idea? For example, who is responsible for the roof, structure of the building etc. Or should I go for a flat in a block?

    Also some of the flats that I've seen in blocks near train stations look really old and run down (i.e. old 60s buildings). Is there a risk they could be demolished in the future and what would my rights be?

    Please could you advise me on what is the safest idea. Many thanks

    who is responsible for the roof, structure of the building etc.
    It all depends on what is in the lease!!!!!!

    I have to keep saying this.

    Where there are no shared internal areas it is likely that the individual lessees will be responsible for their part of the building, but this does not always follow.

    This is all explained further in Flats - Maintenance Responsibilities in Leases
