By the way, its a good thing the way you are approaching this.
Eyes open, and willing to walk away if it makes sense to.

Thanks for all the advice. Going to look into insurance just in case and waiting to talk to my solicitor.

Such a dose as nothing really else on the market at the moment that we can afford like this house as kept being out bidded

We are hoping maybe only drains works need to be carried out and house doesn't need to be underpinned.

I don’t expect to get insurance. To be honest most of Cork you can’t get subsidence cover at all. If it wasn’t for the fact the house ticks all the boxes I would have walked at the mention of subsidence but willing to investigate further to see what the situation is.

We either decide to buy and get the price reduced or see if sellers have insurance and can claim for the works or walk. We have not mentioned anything yet as we had to think about what we wanted to do.
The part of Cork city I have the house, they nearky investigate why their isn't subsidence.

That’s so true. Once you hit the south side of city it’s more a case of houses that have been underpinned vs houses that need to be underpinned
