Advice on cost of replacing loft hatch collar

Postby KevH » Sun Jan 10, 2021 5:17 pm

I'm selling my house and I have been asked by solicitor about the removal of the collar around the loft hatch.

I have been advised that this is a structural alteration and money will need to be kept back to pay to have this reinstated.

I have no idea what this is or the price of repair?

Any help please?

Simply Build It

Without seeing the exact issue it's difficult to advise. However, it sounds to be like a big deal is being made of something just to get a reduction in price. if I was you I would reinstate the collar as it should be a simple fix. Then money will not need to be stopped. you may find that the new owners will then take it out after they move in anyway.
