In my quest for the perfect pad, I found a lovely little house with nothing major to do on the reno side which is probably a rarity.
It used to be two adjoining cottages. The current owners knocked through upstairs into the 1 up/1 down cottage to make an extra bedroom and removed the old staircase. The first floor is therefore only accessible from the main house. The one remaining downstairs room of the old cottage simply needs an interior doorway to be created to join it to the main house.
Having just received a preliminary document from the notaire referring to the property being bought as two separate units (presumably based on the original deed) I am now pondering.
Question to those of you who have undoubtedly knocked houses about a bit:
What are the repercussions, if any, if the description remains that I'm technically buying "two" houses instead of one? In Malta the tax man would be jumping for joy! Are the alterations something I should get the notaire to confirm with the vendor and amend the description, or is the property for all intents and purposes simply that which is built on plot number XYZ and the description itself has little bearing?
Confused woman with a headache.
