Default What estate agents should tell you!

Hi,
Me and my girlfriend were going through the process of buying a home, we viewed it multiple times before and after our offer got accepted, unfortunately our solicitor came back and told us the house had been underpinned,

Should the agent be telling us while viewing the property? we are 1st time buyers and we didn't know what under pinning even was until we looked it up.

we have recently retracted our offer and walked away but still finding it it strange why the agent didn't inform us?

any feedback would be great

Hi Jamie,

Its possible that the estate agents werent aware of this so may not be their fault.

Although there are some shady estate agents that will sell a property for cash as there is no requirement to do a survey unless the buyer pays for one

Regards

Ged
