Off to Bungay today, so of course I find out yesterday that my father needs a heart valve replaced (they wouldn’t put a stent in a year ago) and had the estate agent for the house I want to buy on the phone.
My solicitor had written to their solicitor about the damp concern raised by my survey. The vendor was confused since they were there at the time of the survey and told there was no damp (how I am supposed to know what a surveyor said I’m not sure). They suggested I either had another look, or a second opinion should be sought. Since I’m on holiday for the next almost two weeks I’ve gone with the latter, but it’s worrying all the same. I don’t want to alienate the person I am buying from, but equally I only have my survey to go on, that’s why you get them.
