Check list of question for proxy property viewings

Hi there!

I live in a different county to where my brother is attending uni. I’m looking to move there due to career options and value for money in terms of property vs my current location. My brother has kindly agreed to view the properties first, and if promising I can arrange to make a viewing after to save me travelling for every single one.

I’m currently in my first bought property (a little studio flat) – and boy have I learnt some lessons! Do the below questions/things to check seem enough, anything you think I could add? TIA !

•How long is the lease?

•How much annually is the maintenance/ground rent/insurance?

•How many other properties are in the building?

•Is parking allocated/does each flat have parking for their property?

•How long has the current owner lived in the property?

•Is there central heating? If so do you know roughly how old the boiler is?

•Upon sale will the current owner include white goods? (please take photo of the oven)

•What is the local neighbourhood like?

Things to visually/physically check

•What is the condition of the car park? (include photo pls)

•What is the condition of the communal areas, like the hallway? (photo)

•Are there any indications of unsavoury neighbours?

•What does the door into the flat look like, is it in good condition? (photo)

•Check the ceiling of each room, does there seem to be any damp/mould or discolouration?

•What is the flooring condition in most rooms? (photos if any damaged areas)

•Are the windows single or double glazed? If double is there any condensation trapped between panes?

•What condition do the window frames look like, both from inside and out? (photos)

•Please run the tap in the kitchen and bathroom, and flush the loo to check plumbing is ok
