In this article we discuss why you need more than just a valuation survey when moving or buying a home.
According to a recent This is Money article 4 out of 5 people don’t commission a full property survey before buying their new home. In the same article a case study describes a homeowner who was faced with a £30,000 repair bill for a dry rot problem that wasn’t picked up during a standard home valuation report.
How is a Full Survey Better?
Our full surveys are comprehensive. We look for specific defects that could threaten your investment. You will receive a full written report on all findings so that you can make an informed choice before signing on the dotted line.
Many people have used survey reports to re-negotiate the asking price or to pull out completely. The rest continue with their purchase with complete peace of mind.
Fortunately if you are reading this now, you are in a good position with your property purchase. We can carry out a full survey and uncover any hidden problems including dry rot, damp issues and subsidence. If the homeowner in the above article had of had a survey then she could have avoided the very unfortunate £30,000 repair bill.
