I AM TRYING!!! :-D
So level 3, asbestos survey, roofer check, damp survey at the very least. Got it.
The most common comment from friends who know nothing about building surveys etc is - get those dreadful wallpaper removed, please. I mean they are not that bad, are they? I will remove them but probably not a priority.
How would an electrician do a survey if most of the cables are hidden inside walls etc? I don't need then to go round to check the sockets, my mate can do it. I looked at the fuse box etc, it looks fine. The owner says they have been doing yearly gas check, so will ask when the next one is due and ask to see old certs...
Gosh this is getting quite stressful!
@Dugtheslug, we think the house is solid brick, the EPC cert said solid bricks and cavity wall, so I am guessing the extension is cavity wall. The gutter defo needs a good clean when I saw it last week, but that's the easy and cheap. Might even ask to see if they would get it cleaned. After all, I did offer more than what they were asking and they are in a chain, I am not... (I won't put it like that of course!)
Sorry for the endless number of questions and thank you everyone!
