Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know what type of survey you had?
I only had the basis survey unfortunately... The house is only 20 years old so I was 'advised' not to have a more thorough one..
Its bad news I am afraid.
You have no claim against the previous owner as you had an opportunity to have a survey
Again the choice of survey is yours from the valuation survey to a full buildings survey
You only had the basic one and sadly therefore the survey company is not liable
This being the case I am sorry to say that there is no claim and you will have to pay for the repairs
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks for your answer.
