Identify the issue and deal with it
A sale could fall through for a number of reasons, whether that’s finances, a change in circumstances or gazundering. But you need to find out why, says David Leake, of Housesetc, based in Goole, East Yorkshire. “Nine times out of ten, it’s a survey,” he says. And if it’s a recurring theme, for example damp, get reports done. That way, you can approach future buyers with all the information. And, he adds, it’s worth it for the sake of a few hundred pounds. “Don’t paper over the cracks. It will be discovered.”
