Hey, wasn't sure where to post this on AAM. Viewed a house today, with lots of land. First Question is: Which comes first - The Survey or making an Offer? Second Question: house needs a fair bit of work and is currently full of furniture and possessions - there is a bid on the house; but well below the asking. It seems like the house is being sold completely as is - but will cost quite a bit to get rid of all the stuff - several beds etc etc etc. We want to go in at full asking price and hopefully avoid bids against us - any suggestions how do we approach the family clearing out the house? It's to avoid time to clear it and expense to dispose of it ourselves. Third Question - a timber Chalet was built as a 'lean to' it's plumbed for water and central heating - but I doubt it has planning - is this an issue as a purchaser (It's rough enough inside, but could be salvageable if we decided to get Wwoofer Volunteers to work on the land) ? Many thanks.
