Our survey is back, some work I expected, some I don't care about as long term we would be fixing any way but some that I'm worried could be costly fixes.

So my plan is to get quotes to fix the bits I'm worried about but then what? If it's a lot of money am I within my rights to ask for a price reduction? Or am I stuck

If it's stuff that couldn't be easily accounted for - eg some technical matter an experienced surveyor could recognise but not a man on the street - yes, I think it is fair to renegotiate. If it is something very obvious - eg window frames are rotten and need replacing - then I would expect you to have accounted for this when you offered. Either way, the seller may rrguse to discount.

Mainly things I would spot and did (some are just stupid like the kitchen cabinets are old!) But just a couple I wouldn't know how to spot
