I inspected a house in Sydney, for Investment purpose, this house had a major fire 9 years ago. The owner got the house fixed but no reports/ any paper work is available as the work was carried out by his builder friends. The owner has passed away few years ago and the property is inhabited by his wife currently. As per the agent, only timber floor and outside walls are original rest all was changed after fire The outside walls are original brick but rendered to hide the black fire marks. I noticed two cracks on one side wall in the bottom section, not sure if they show structure problem. The agents story is that the owner didn’t have insurance at the time of fire so his friends helped in fixing the house, who were legit builders. But, since all was informally done there are no reports available to say that everything was done up to standards. Somehow this property is not generating much interest in market in spite of being in good location as comparing with other properties sold recently in vicinity. I am not sure what’s the implication of fire and why it is not getting much traction? If I think to move forward, what all checks shall I get done apart from normal building/pest inspection given the history of fire 9 years ago. Are there any long term problems for such a house?
