House rewire on a house we are about to buy
We are in the process of buying our first home and the offer has been accepted, our mortgage company is happy to give us a mortgage and the solicitors have taken the money to do the searches.
Now, we have had a gas and electrical test done. The gas came back fine, there was only a minor problem but this was fixed but the electrics will need doing to the poi t where the house will need a full rewire.
Whos responsibility is this to have this done? Even though we have had them tested would the vendor have to pay for this work? Can we ask them to bring the house price down for the work that needs to be carried out?
