Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

MILES MEACOCK of Strutt & Parker rose to the chal­lenge when a po­ten­tial pur­chaser wanted a price re­duc­tion, as the sur­vey sug­gested that the roof might need work. Mr Meacock knew that it was sound and that it was simply that the sur­veyor had not been able to ac­cess it, but he was un­able to per­suade the buyer of this—un­til, that is, he hired a cherry-picker and took him up in it to show him the roof. Con­tracts were ex­changed that af­ter­noon at the ask­ing price.
