Very glad we went with a surveyor with local knowledge as the house we wanted to buy had ‘mundic in the foundations’.
We had never heard of this but we were informed that mundic can substantially reduce the value of the house.
This would have been a compulsory test if buying with a mortgage in Cornwall but we are cash buyers. In other words had we not had a survey we would he ended up in a real mess.
We have booked the mundic core drill test as per your recommendation.
