help! hallway and bedroom floor is sloping

first off thanks for reading.

my husband and I bought an older home with the intent of renovating. we have finally made our way to the extra bedrooms in the home and in our main hallway our floor has sloped downward into one of the bedrooms. It's a sharp slope, the flooring in the hallway is laminate tiles and it splits right at on tile. the bedrooms are exactly across the hall from each other and they are not level with each other at all, what do we do? do we take up the subfloor and redo the floorjoists? we really have no idea and do not want to spend a fortune having someone else do it if we can possibly fix it ourselves

Welcome to the forums! First and foremost, find the cause of the settling. It is obviously from either the foundation sinking or the support lumber above the foundation being compressed or rotted. Is it on a crawlspace or over a basement?
