We like to think that once the summer is here, most of our problems dissolve in an unseen
universe and don’t come back before the winter. However, summer is the perfect time to buy
houses, is it not? You get to see a lot of houses for sale, and you get to decide. But before you
decide, here are some things you need to ask the previous owners about the house, or the
builder, if you are the first owner.
Firstly, one of the questions buyers don’t ask is the building itself. How is it built? Out of what is
it built? What about the piping. One very wise emergency plumber has opened my eyes; nobody
asks about the plumbing. What is there is something wrong with it, and will only going to find
out when you already own the house.
But he also told me some tricks you can do yourself, in order to find the truth about the house
you are about to buy. For example, try to flush the toilet. If it’s quick, you’re lucky, but if it’s
slow, you better have it fixed before you move in.
Also check to see any sign of leaking around the toilet and the basin. Rolled up vinyl, stains,
mostly black or white are signs of leaking, and you should fix that too.
