    We completed the purchase of the properties back in December and realised there were straight line cracks pretty much in every room in the house (living room, kitchen, all the bedrooms). Neither we and the surveyor noticed that before.

    Our plasterer tapped those cracks, skimmed and painted. However those cracks are coming back only after a month. The master bedroom is particularly worse. These are all end to end straight lines.

    His advise is best to replace the ceilings as they could fall at anytime, most likely caused by the load, re-plaster over time since the house was built in 1960s. We did have the kitchen ceiling replaced and he said the old ceiling was so heavy when they were taken off. I would like to seek second opinions as this is worrying and we have just moved in today.

    Any advise is highly appreciated.

    Are you walking over the joists? Wonder if the boards need double nailing as well.
