    I would remove the bath panel to see what kid of Nik the floor is in!! We left it a bit too long and found the floor boards were black and pretty rotten. Had the floor tiled so only a small bit was visible

    Good advice. We did the same (left it too long) and had to replace the floorboards and leave the walls drying for over a week before getting any work done. Might've had to do that anyway right enough.

    a previous owner had put in a diy shower cubicle, turns out the tiles hadnt be regrouted for a long time and it was leaking into the false wall behind, which was then leaking out of the light fittings in the hall below. we noticed this 2 weeks after moving in.

    Solicitor was a waste of air, and the house insurance refused to pay out as they deemed it to have been doing this since before we moved in, and that wed have to take it up with the previous owner (prick who refused to acknowledge any of the other issues hed left behind), so cost us over 2 grand to get the whole thing ripped out completely and a proper shower enclosure put in

    Was there any mention of this in the home report you would have seen before you bought it?
