Help! My House Is Falling Down

Recommended Posts

I managed to catch most of the episode last night but missed the beginning. Did anyone see it? I was wondering if any of the people on the show had carried out full structural surveys before they bought their houses? I would guess not but would like to know for sure.

A structural survey was not mentioned as far as I can remember. they cant have had one done otherwise the problems would have been highlighted and no one in their right mind would have went ahead with the purchase. I think they got away very luckily with the work required, a quick jet of the drains, a patching up of the roof and some expanding foam injected into the foundations. Anyone who buys an old 16 room house in that condition without a survey deserves to get the shock of their life when the thing falls down (obviously not with anyone inside at the time).

That's what I didn't understand. When Sarah Boobies was on property ladder she always bereated people who bought without having a survey who then found problems later. I can't imagine she'd let them off easily, or atleast give several cautionary voice overs warning other people of the dangers of buying without a survey.
