The stress of moving house has finally reached a pinacle today. We have had a letter from our buyers solicitor asking for the building regulations for the knock through we did from the lounge to the dining room. The builder who knocked through was a friend of OH's dad and he didn't get building regs out! He didn't finish the work in the house properly either and it cost us a further £600 to get the job finished back then. He was diagnosed with bowel cancer at the time so we didn't push the issue. However we now have to have an inspection by the council in which they will have to knock some of the plaster off the wall to check the steel joist is correct and if it is not we will have to have rip it out and replace it. Am I just stupid or should the f**king builder have known about getting it checked? We didn't know but we're not builders! I am not a happy bunny as we are supposed to exchange next Friday and I can't see that happening now! I Just want my new house!!!
