I like this area for various reasons - I know its far from the city etc but it suits me. Now I know from reading the pin that this area has ‘tanked’ what do you think of this house? Is this tanked enough?
I do intend buying this year and not in a rush but I am fed up renting and fed up worrying about bank crashes and all that - enough - my nerves have had it…
So I like this house and others similar to it of which there are a few in the area. Do you think it is a fair price?
I know if I was buying I would get advice from surveyor and solicititor, but having worked with these in past I don’t have a lot of trust. Don’t intend to offend anyone here but below is a true snippet of a chat I had with a surveyor I used to work for:
Me ‘how do you test for damp?’
Surveyor ‘feel the curtains and sniff the air…ha ha ha’
Me ‘what about structural faults, what if house is built on sand etc.’
Surveyor ‘exclude everything…you can, always exclude foundations…’
Please help. Is it built on an earthquake, sandpit, bog, river, ghost-filled old graveyard, fairy ring, flood plane - in the path of a motorway or in an area marked out for a fracking frenzy?
