Yes it did rather!
I will make an offer tomorrow first thing. I guess they may reject it but hopefully no-one else will come in better than me...
Good luck, make your offer and stick to it, its still a fairly quiet time of the year and you don't need to rush.
Remember it'll cost you the thick end of £1000 for the survey which can be viewed as 'dead money'.
The survey will probably frighten you to death but that's his job - make you aware of anything that could be a problem, then he has identified everything in the event of a future problem. Use the faults identified as negotiating ammunition, but you cannot say "I need to repaint it because I don't like the colour" - that's a personal choice and not one that should be used for negotiating, the fact you want tartan wallpaper is your 'fault' not the sellers.
