Hi, thanks for your enquiry. I am afraid that it is very unlikely that you will have any claim against your Seller. When buying a property, a Buyer purchases it in its existing condition and it is a case of "caveat emptor" ("Let the Buyer beware"). Hence it is up to a Buyer to satisfy themselves as regards ***** ***** and condition of the property and a Seller is under no duty whatsoever to comment or disclose anything relating to the state of the property-it is up to a Buyer to rely on their own Survey. Only if your Solicitor had raised a specific enquiry to the Seller's Solicitor querying the existence of asbestos and the heating system and the Seller had deliberately lied about there not being asbestos/that the whole heating system was installed correctly, would you have a claim against the Seller. I am sorry this is not the answer you were looking for but it sets out the legal position. Kind Regards Al
