Why have a survey?

Do you know what you are buying?

Research has found that, on average, homebuyers, who don’t have a survey, spend over £5,500 on unexpected repair work, after purchasing a home. A survey provides a detailed schedule of condition and potential defects likely to affect the existing value and future saleability of the property you are purchasing.

Common defects detected in surveys include subsidence, damp, dry/wet rot, roof faults, and Japanese Knotweed. In addition to structural defects, a survey can also assist your solicitor in finding potential legal issues, relating to the property.
