Galway County Council under application number 131366 in May 2014 condemned the septic tank and stated that the tank should be renewed within five years of ruling. This has yet to be done and the auctioneers estimate that this would cost circa €8,000. The property has been priced at the current level with the view that any purchaser will have to expend this additional cost.
