We all know we should get houses inspected before we buy them in case of any surprises like termite damage, but there's a scary story about home owners getting sick from previous drug activity in their home which is suggested meth tests might be next.
We had a rental property once that was a disaster. The first night we were in it there were heaps of cockroaches climbing the walls and flying across the room. We also quickly discovered it was very damp and cold. There was mould on the walls and in wardrobes. We thought the house had lots of character before we moved in, but couldn't wait to move out!
