My mum thinks we are rushing it a bit, but if we love the house and its in budget then why not? Also she doesn't know I'm pregnant as I'm only 11 weeks, so she doesn't know we are keen to be sorted as soon as possible!

The only issue with this house is it has a small flat roof single story extension which I know can cause issues. So we are prepared the survey might turn up some nasties. However its a fairly modern one and the house was sold 2 years ago with it on so it can't have been a big issue then.
Oooh exciting! So, here are my new questions then ...
1. Why are they moving after just 2 years?
2. As it's such a short period of time, they may still have their own survey notes for the flat roof.
3. Maybe ask a builder to accompany you and get a rough cost on making it into a pitched roof, or something other than a flat one.
4. Get a ladder and check that roof!

That's all for now! Good luck

We were also curious on the move- they were renting in a different area but couldn't afford to buy there. But their daughter remained at school there, so now they have made a little money on the house they are moving back to be near the school. They've already found a house they want to move to. Unless they are very creative liars I'm happy with that explanation.

I'm hoping they do have their survey still from last time, I need to ask how old it is and what the roof is made out of etc. If it needs replacing soon then not necessarily a deal breaker (its not huge) but we'll have to factor it into the price.

Thanks for the advice!
