Following receipt of your detailed Homebuyers Report on the above property and your e-mail below, the Selling Agents instructed a damp specialist to inspect and report on the dampness within the property in Basingstoke.  The damp specialist did indeed report significant dampness to internal and external walls, which confirmed your findings to the Seller and the Agent, and proposed rectification measures and initial quotation for the works.

However, despite the fact that it is the Seller's responsibility to rectify this problem, the Seller was not prepared to do so, which was not acceptable to us.  We therefore decided not to proceed with the purchase of the property given the high financial risk to ourselves in not only the damp issue, but also the considerable structural problems also identified in your report.

We would like to thank you for your invaluable investigations in this matter, which may well have saved us a substantial sum of money because should we have proceeded without your advice, it would undoubtedly have cost us dearly.

With kind regards,

Mr & Mrs Haywood, Basingstoke
