Sarah Beeny rescues families who have serious problems with their properties
Sarah Beeny revisits Paul and Clare Baker, whose house in Essex was cracking apart and infested with rats. Paul and Clare Baker bought their house in Essex as the perfect home for their four children, but peeling back the wallpaper revealed a terrifying crack all along the back of the property. It turned out their dream home was sitting on six metres of sludge and splitting in half. Sarah and her team discovered that the problems literally ran very deep, and they also tackled a rat infestation, sewage seeping into the ground floor, and black mould that made the children ill. A year on, Sarah revisits the family to see if they are finally free of their problems.
Sarah attempts to help Nick and Becky who purchased their 250-year-old cottage in the Northampton village of Earl's Barton three years ago. Since buying the property they have discovered woodworm in the rafters. Their stone walls are also being eroded by the weather and being destroyed by a swarm of brick-eating bees.
