Painting & Decorating Question

Peeling paint

We had our sons room replastered about nine years ago and we have just decided to decorate but we were filling a few holes in and sanding them smooth to start redecorating then all the paint has started to peel off the wall, it is just peeling off, it is like the paint has not stuck to the wall. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how we can correct this problem and stop it happening when we redecorate again.

Sounds like the plaster wasn't miss-coated first. You will have to scrap off all the loose paint before you decorate. All the bare plaster must have a miss-coat with a matt emulsion before you paint again.This should rectify the problem.
