All is not lost if major problems have been identified in the report.
The severity of the problem must first be determined, the inspector should, with their experience be able to help with this. Sometimes a problem may in your view be a major problem, when in reality it is not and in some cases can be easily rectified without a great deal of expense. When in any doubt, contact your inspector.
When you have made your decision.
- Contact your legal representative and inform them, so they can act in whatever manner on your behalf.
- If necessary, request an extension to allow time for further searches to be carried out.
- If required, obtain quotes on major expense faults.
Never forget, whatever problems found by the inspector may affect you when reselling the property, unless they have been rectified at your expense!
Consider this: All buildings have problems to varying degrees, it is whether they are acceptable to you or not that is most important.
