Thanks for your enquiry.
I am afraid to say that there is no liability on the past owner whaatsoever. the first rule about buying a house is that you buy it in its existing condition and it is up to a Buyer to make all investigations/survey before buying. I apprecate that this was a hidden defect, but even so, there is no liability on the Seller.
I am sorry this is not the Answer you were looking for, but if I have answered your question, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
yes i probably knew that anyway, I just thought I'd check with an expert.
