Hi there, The house im buying was all going smoothly until the surveyor tried to get into the property where he found there had been a burst water pipe upstairs coming from the boiler. Since then I have just waited and waited and now the estate agents are telling me all that is required is to get large dehumidifiers in the house for a week. The leak could of been going on for 2+ weeks. The floors are soaked. The small cupboard under the stairs is soaked with plaster coming off. small cracks are now visible on some walls and a lot of the walls are damp to the touch. Also it went into the kitchen but didnt bring any ceilings down but has probably gone down behind the kitchen cupboards etc.. Can anyone tell me the problems that are likely to result from this leak which has sat there over christmas wet. Im very concerned about buying this house now and am hoping the surveyor when allowed in will pick up on all the damage thats been caused. What price does anyone put on the damage water costs to the value of a house. He's not insured as he'd of gone through insurance by now instead of getting a contractor in.
