A friend of mine sold an IP flat, settlement in a few days. On Friday there was a request from the buyer for access to measure the rooms. I've just found out that there was a lot of noise coming from the flat, and it seems like there was demolition going on. My friend did not give permission for any works, just measuring. While it's nice to get a head start, I'm not enthused about such works. There are insurance ramifications, and what if settlement does not take place? My friend and I have not seen the IP, and I'm hoping to arrange this in the next 24 hours. Views on the above would be valued, including any remedies.
