Have gone sale agreed recently and survey has shown up dry rot (and rising damp, but that seems to be less of a problem). I haven't got the report yet, but surveyor said over the phone that it was one of the worst cases he had seen.
Has anyone any experience in dealing with this? Obviously depends upon the extent, etc., but is it a case of walk away once you hear those words?
It will provide scope for renegotiation, but it seems to me that I would have to take a huge chance, given likely inability to perform opening-up works to identify the full extent of it.
