I'm a first time buyer. Have had offer go through and valuation done. No issues with my property by surveyor has raised issues with connected property. Has anyone else dealt with this? What can be done?

    What can be done?

    Depending on type of the issue..
    -You can withdraw your offer
    -You can decrease the offer
    -You can ignore it and buy it anyway and then deal with it later
    -Also bank can withdraw their mortgage offer if it's a big problem which could lead to house damage in the future
