    From speaking with two estate agents recently there doesn’t seem to be much property shifting for over a million Euro now, although this house might be just the one to change that view.

    The house itself seems well-appointed, but you’re always looking for that wow factor in expensive houses and the interiors are what impress here, together with the rear garden and the views.

    The house is located in Skerries, which is a beautiful area in the North County and a much sought after location in its own right, but its possibly a bit far out for some.

    In relation to the house itself; –

    1. It isn’t clear at the scale of the photos shown how this house is ventilated to prevent a build up of interstitial condensation with all these “rooms in the roof”.

    2. Similarly its not clear if all the downlighters have got their FR30 Fire Hoods in place to preserve the 30 minute Fire Resistance of the Ground Floor ceiling.

    3. It looks as though there are steps up at both the front and rear door thresholds although this isn’t very clear from the photos. It also isn’t clear from the photos hif the downstairs WC can be easily used by persons in wheelchairs. It would be useful to know whether the house complies with Part M of the Building Regulations, Access for the Disabled.

    Its possible that all these things were dealt with at the design stage or at the construction stage, but they can easily be fogotten and should always be checked out by a potential purchaser. This isn’t an exhaustive list of things to check, just some pointers.

    During the Celtic Tiger a lot of property changed hands “off the plans”. This suggests that some purchasers were so eager to attain ownership of properties in desirable developments in good locations that the normal vetting procedures using building professionals [architects, engineers and surveyors] went the same way as the checks and balances previously employed by banks regarding loans.

    In other words, the houses may not have been properly inspected. In my opinion it places an onus on potential purchasers of properties built in the last 15 years to retain a building professional check the standard of workmanship and detailing in the house. They should also ask to see the Building Energy Rating Certificate whether its for same or rent.

    I have no connection with firms who supply disabled access eaves/ridge ventilators, disabled access products, insulation products or fire-resistance products to the building industry. I occassionally inspect properties for clients as a building professional.
