Re: House/room tilting - how fixable is it?
Another thing to consider is financing: right now, lenders are pretty skittish. You'd be lucky to close with a loan for this house if the bank's inspector/appraiser indicates that there are serious structural problems.
It may be impossible to level some parts of the house if there were additions or modifications made after the house began settling. What often happens is someone adds on to an out-of-kilter house. Later on, you go to level the original house, and now there is no way the addition can ever be made level. Even in the level part, you may find that doors no longer close, cupboards and counters are all akimbo, sewer pipes run uphill, and possibly that the upstairs or attic floor has a big hump in it because an interior wall was added after the first floor had settled.
But like sabo said, anything is possible; how much money do you have?
