We are in the process of looking at possibly buying a house that is in need of extensive modernisation and extending also. At the very early stages at the moment (just had a look, no bid put in).
What would the first thing we should do? We are hoping to get a rough idea of how much it would cost to renovate and possibly extend the house before we put in a bid etc. Or can we put in a bid and wait until it (hopefully) is accepted and then start doing our homework?
Is it an Architect, or an engineer etc? This is all new to us so would be very grateful of the advice.
We aren't sure if it would be worth the hassle of the renovations etc if the costs work out too much. It's currently at a good price and location is amazing for us, as long as the other costs wouldn't be too crazy.
Thanks in advance
