BET­TER SAFE THAN SORRY Q

Living France - - THE ESSENTIALS - MARTIN BAKER

We’re cur­rently look­ing at prop­er­ties in France and have seen one that we think has po­ten­tial – it would def­i­nitely be a project! It’s an old barn which we’d like to con­vert into a house and pos­si­bly a gîte, and we’d like to know how fea­si­ble this would be. Some work has al­ready been done and we sus­pect it’s sub­stan­dard, so we ex­pect this would need to be re-done. We’re a bit con­cerned that this might have done more dam­age than good, and that it’s hid­ing fur­ther de­fects. What are our op­tions be­fore we com­mit to buy­ing it?
