  • Yes. It can be more difficult to find a buyer, but the main concerns will be whether the issues have been resolved.

  • If the works been carried out and you have a certificate to prove this along with the guarantee, then I can't see a problem. Initially it may cause concern but your agent can answer any questions potential vendors may have.

  • Yes, however its current status will dictate the selling price though. If its correctly repaired then expect the current market price, if not, then expect a reduced price in line with the costs involved in making those repairs.

  • If your buyers have a mortgage their lender will have to ensure that the issue is not on-going and is historical. The lender's surveyor should clarify this for them.
