Hello everyone, my family has put an
Hello everyone, my family has put an offer on a modest little studio apartment in Scalea, Calabria. (40 sq. m). A structural engineer just conducted a survey of the property, and the report came back that the electrical and plumbing needs to be rebuilt. No specific information was provided. Overall the building was considered to be in "good condition." My question is, is it normal for a survey to be so vague? And has anyone had any experience rebuilding the plumbing/ sanitation system when buying a property? I am hoping that the system is functional, but old, so that the work can wait until we have moved to Europe to do. Can anyone give me an idea how much money it cost to "rebuild" plumbing, in their experience? As the electrical is all outside the walls, my husband thinks he can work with that, but obviously plumbing is a scary prospect! I've already asked the estate agent for more detail, but am basically looking for any reassurance while I await his reply. Thanks!
