Should we have the Seller fix defects or do a price reduction?
Everyone wants to move into a house which doesn’t require you to do any work. It is annoying to have to organize tradesmen, supervise them and then pay them after it is all done. So the temptation is to have the Seller do all this. Let’s face it, they created the problem they should fix it.
On a matter, where we were involved, the roof needed repairing. The Buyers found out that it still had problems 3 months later when there was a heavy downpour. The Seller had disappeared and the plumber said he recommended doing more work but the Seller told him only to fix certain parts.
We recommend you always take a price reduction. This will allow you to ensure the work being done is what was agreed and that if the tradesman doesn’t do it correctly the first time then you have the right to force him to come back.
