Poor Kirstie

While see is a waste of carbon and water, she does have a point that the packs are worthless:-

1) who is going to pay £600 to be told that because of x, y and z your house is actually worth £10,000 less then you thought.

2) the people aren't there to do the reports.

3) As a buyer I'm not going to trust it anyway. I would want a proper report to give me proper ammo when negotiation actual price (oh and insured backup if the surveyor missed something important).

also how many desperate sellers will have that spare £600 to be able to put those houses on the market (if you can't afford your mortgage repayment you definitely cannot afford the pack).

I can see a fair few more forced repossessions because of the packs.

Sellers packs would have saved me several hundred quid and here's why they are a good idea;

Put down deposits on two houses in Telford. The survey showed that one had a mine in the garden. Now I know this isn't really a problem but I decided against buying. I lost the deposits, solicitors fees etc.

I was pretty pissed off that it didn't have to be declared and I had to lay out the deposits, solicitor and survey fees etc to find this out.

Now consider someone else comes along after I pull out and goes through exactly the same process to discover that after shelling out several hundred pounds there is a mine in the garden.

This could go on and on and we've all lost money totally unecessarily.

Sellers Packs are therefore good for the buyer.

I think the £600 will be taken on by Estate Agents offering a comprehensive package.

Yep, unexploded ordnance would put me off, too :unsure:

It's probably not that uncommon in some areas, Telford new town is built on a bunch of old collieries.

I believe it's the shafts you have to be worried about, ensure the vendor and EA doesn't shaft you :P
