Well, we may have sold our French house. Fingers crossed. We have had the Diagnostic survey and the surveyor said there were a few issues with unearthed plugs and things like that. He said, however, that none of them were “obligatoire”, ie needing urgent attention. BUT, we have now had the completed report and it reads like a horror story!! We have been to our local electrical, plumbing enterprise (whom we have found excellent over the years) and they also seemed to think it was a horror story!!! They are coming to have a look for themselves and will do any work needed. There is also the fact that, as mentioned elsewhere here, we suddenly seem to have acquired 6 bedrooms instead of 5 and several additional rooms???
But my question is this. Can the potential buyers use this report as a bargaining tool to force us to drop the price still further? And if so, what should we do? I would be grateful for any advice on this.
