Just saw this guys and had an update request.

Sale fell through as we were not budging on our tradesmen, and from what I can tell, it fell through again since. It’s been taken off the market now!

Since then, we are sale agreed and in the final stages of a purchase. 50% larger house and 25k cheaper. Closer to schools and city centre. Much nicer garden too!

Thanks for all the advice here everyone and apologies for not updating after it fell through.

If the problem is subsiding in the neighbours property which is affecting your drainage that's a complex fix. The neighbour will technically be responsible but that could be a huge financial cost. We just got subsiding fixed on a 7m long stretch of a building and the cost was around €25k. Because we discovered it during the purchase we got that price off the sale agreed price. Unless you can get access to check the drains I'd walk away. The sellers of our place threatened a few times to end the sale because it was taking so long but in the end the estate agent convinced them that any buyer would want the same checks and assurances. Get them on your side to talk sense into the seller to let you inspect everything you need to and if they won't walk away!

The OP pulled out of the sale. Look at comment above.
