Just need to write this down…
After 12 months searching for a house to buy, in December we put in an offer on a 4 bedroom + study + 2 living rooms (big enough for the pool table that’s been pushed against a wall for 10 years) house here in Geelong, and the offer was accepted. Yay!
Today, with 13 days left until settlement, the real estate kindly opened the house for me to bring in a guy from Carpet Court, to get a quote on new flooring. What we found however was an inch of water in about 80% of the lower level of the house.
A pile under the kitchen sink had burst some time between probably Christmas and at least a week ago based on the mould / wetness evident even outside the house…
Now we have to wait for the vendor’s insurance co to assess the damage and perform repairs, to see if we’re happy to continue.
