There's a terraced house for sale which has obvious damp and needs
work done to it. I'm not sure who I need to come out and have a look
at the place before I buy.
As I mentioned, the house requires obvious work so it's probably not
worth paying someone to write up a homebuyers report informing me the
house has damp, requires central heating, requires re-wiring, requires
plumbing etc as I'm aware it needs this work.
The house has *no*
obvious structural problems, at least there's no
obvious cracks anywhere. Basically I need to know is the house
structurally ok, and a vague indication as to what it's going to cost
to repair. In order to know whether it's worth buying at the current
So, who should I be getting out? A general builder, a damp
specialist, a surveyor?
