We are almost completed on the purchase of a 1900’s mid terraced house in Nottingham and the final search we received today says that the house is in a radon affected area “as between 3 and 5% of homes are above the action level”.
We are newbies but we will no doubt carry the responsibility to the sitting tenant to minimise any risks to them from Radon. However, it takes 3 plus months to test for Radon and if we don’t proceed then we will no doubt lose the purchase and incur costs which may not be so far away from the cost of rectification anyway.
Does anyone have experience of dealing with Radon, and what is the opinion about whether to continue with the purchase?
