Has anyone had a house sale fall through because of a surveyors report? What would make you withdraw from a sale from reading a surveyors report? Would subsidence worry you if it happened a few years ago, was fixed and is now is OK? We're terrified in case this happens to us as we so desperately want to move out of London as DP is starting a new job in January.
Hi macca I am on the other side.I have had an offer accepted on a house where the one next door was underpinned in the 90s and today our surveyor is doing a more detailed report as often when a house is underpinned the neighbouring properties foundations can be disturbed.If the report comes back showing subsidence we will pull out.If it shows historic movement that has not progressed we may proceed with a further £ reduction.We don't want to do the work our selves .Does yours have subsidence?
