I have a place under contract and did a walkthrough inspection. When I got to the attic, I found that there had been a fire. Some rafters appeared to be pretty well charred, but everything is standing and has been for a long time. I don’t have records for when the place burned, but the interior has been totally redone years ago and the metal roof has been there a while too. There was a minor indication of charring in the basement. I didn’t notice any indication of movement at the walls.
I want this place. Is there anything that I should consider beyond the obvious? I may need to have some rafters reinforced and the like. My concern is that I may be missing something. Any input is appreciated.
