Hello - I’m Jan and we’re in the process of buying a property in Brittany. Two of the reports seem to me concnering (though my French is schoolgirl and rapidly trying to improve).
From the boxes crossed on the the electricy diagnostic there seems to be
a problem with the earthing ‘mise en terre’ (2)
no protection against lightning strikes (3)
the rules regarding bathrooms and shower rooms 4)
evidence that some of the electrical installation poses a risk of direct contact with electricity. It appears to have live wiring which is unprotected. (5)
and there are items in the installation that are obsolete or in disrepair ‘vetuste’. (6)
From the parasite report
there is mention of larval infestation which seems very widespread.
And one bedroom has damp and fungal growth. I’m concnerned this might be coming through an unsued chimney.
How worrying are these problems? There’s a lot of pressure from the agents to sign the compromis by August 20 but I’m wondering about getting a full survey and also would like to find out the cots of remedying the electrical and parasite issues.
This is our dream house (and land!) but we don’/t have huge reserves to do extensive work so any advice would be most welcome.
