Older rowhome (about 100 years) with an unfinished basement (about 5 feet from floor to joists). For those familiar with Philly it is a “trinity” style construction.
The basement is accessed by a scuttle hole in the living room floor with a ladder (no stairs).
The upper floors are accessed by extremely narrow and steep circular (pie shaped) wood stairs.
The buyer is getting an FHA loan - are they likely to have a problem with the lack of handrails, and how would you recommend soving the problem if they are?
FYI - this style home has three rooms above each other (only one room deep) and was not constructed with standard stairs in mind and it might even significantly detract from the charm, and hence value, of the home to alter the stairs.
