Staircase levelling

Can a staircase be levelled out.
Move into new property and now think its too steep for our grandchildren.

Thanks for any advice

Unfortunately not. If you were to try moving it it would throw all the treads and risers off plum and level. You would also massively effect the structural stability of the staircase

You won’t be able to move a staircase without it causing damage to the stairs. There’s not really anything you can do about the pitch of the stairs without replacing the whole thing

No, as Nathan says the staircase is usually integral to the structure of the property.
In some cases you can redesign a staircase but it's a major job and you need a structural engineer or architect.
