The 1970’s detached house was in excellent condition, but due to a crack drain, the rear of the house had suffered sever structural damage.

Structurally Damaged Brickwork of a House

With structural engineers report in hand, it advised the rear elevation needed taking down, new strip foundation and drains to be fitted, along with the rebuilding. Not a job for the faint-hearted, and was more suited for a builder/developer.

The local Norwich family who owned the property had already moved out as the house structure was dangerous, and reached a financial settlement with the insurance company, on the understanding the property went straight to Norwich auction with an agreed reserve and a percentage payment to the insurer over and above reserve price.

This was a good result for the vendor and also protected the insurer’s interest. With a closed guide of £150,000 – £200,000, these lots are challenging to predict the value on the day.
Spirited auction bidding saw the hammer fall at £220,000 to a local builder. That’s the kind of result Sell by Auction team in Norwich can deliver Maximum Results for you
