I would like to thank the wonderful Sarah Carpenter for all her help - and patience in our recent purchase of a beautiful but run down maisonette in Bath. Although it had lots of potential, the property was in a very sorry state and required a lot of renovation work. The banks surveyor failed to see its worth and downgraded the value to such an extent that we were forced - albeit unwillingly, to re-negotiate the price. Sarah's calm and positive manner kept the deal together and meant that everything could proceed relatively unhindered. We are most grateful to both Sarah and the vendor for their support.
