It's the wrong bike for the job.
Why do you think so?

This would've been an expensive bike new, about £900 and it looks like its not had much serious use, the chainrings look hardly worn. I reckon the only thing you might need to change would be the tyres, but even these look in good nick. If you stated what size bike you were looking for it would help

Will check it out but very interested in the current offer I received for £150 - if you guys think that bike is not too good, I will look into alternatives
Don't forget you will need to budget for shoes and cleats (or non-clipless pedals). Not sure how you will get on walking up and down drives, stairs etc. in them. That Triban bike is more of a racing bike, so hardly suitable for daily deliveries. It has no mudguards, so you are going to get wet(ter) and dirty whenever it rains.
With the greatest respect, I have difficulty understanding why you repeatedly post asking for advice and then ignore most of that which is given. I would suggest that you re-read and follow the advice given by the more experienced members (you can soon determine who they are by spending a few minutes reading their other posts - I am not one of them).
