If the piano is as much as ¼ step flat, the pitch must be raised before it can be tuned. If the piano is as much as ½ step flat it will require two pitch raises before tuning.
Note: All manufacturers recommend a minimum of two tunings per year. This prevents the piano from dropping in pitch and maintains a reasonable tuning.
The older a piano is, the more likely it will need more than just tuning. Never buy a used piano without first obtaining an appraisal that includes the cost of all repairs, regulation, etc.
