Research2 has found that more than three-quarters of Brits (77%) have found a fault after moving into their new home. The most commonly missed faults are damp or mould (24%), poor electrics (22%), poor plumbing (20%), cosmetic issues with walls, ceilings or internal fixings 19%), and poor or no central heating (18%). It’s important to have a survey before purchasing a property as the average cost of putting the defects right is around £5,000.
