Hi all,

Our survey report mentioned there was damp in the front room. We are having a quote for the damp. Would you buy a house with damp, right location and right price.

Thank you

Reduce your offer by whatever it costs to fix and then go for it!

Yes, definitely if you live the house.

I've just done it, but we were confident of the source of the damp and the costs to fix.

Just make sure you have good understanding of the problems. Surveys aren't always accurate.

Yes. But like sheep says; get a quote for the damp and reduce your offer. Maybe be prepared to have to meet the seller halfway.

What's causing the damp? That's what you really need to know, and how to fix it. Be cautious of taking advice from a damp treatment company.
