Downstairs toilet through occupational health advice please

happyfella Community member Posts: 461 Pioneering
Hi, so i have occupational health and are phoning me and visiting me all the time as they want me to have a downstairs toilet.

They want a big extension built on the back of my house. But i do not understand the process and not sure if to go ahead.

What they have told me is, the cost of having it done would be around £15,000. They said the first £5000 would come from a grant but the next ten thousand would come from us. They said they only take the money once the house has been sold.

They have not really explained the process. So i would be grateful if anyone can explain the process to me.

I do not know if this is being done through the council or another organisation. We own our own house with a mortgage.

If anyone has any information please can you let me know about the process.

              I would get them back and make sure you have all the details and do not agree to anything you do not understand. Why on earth would you need a 'large' extension for a toilet! Where has the figure of £15,000 come from, has a builder been to see your property? I would get at least 3 quotes and not just rely on what OH have told you. Ask for everything in writing so you know exactly what you are getting. I hope you get sorted.

    You need to go back to your local Authority to ask them to fully explain everything to you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
