Benefits of having a residential survey
Whether you’re buying your very first home or moving again, you must have a house survey done. You’re spending a lot of money on your new property, and a residential survey can help you find out about the condition of the building you’re investing in.
Read our guide: What is a Property Survey & is it Worth Having One?
Is having a survey necessary?
Being forewarned is being forearmed. Once you’ve made an offer on a property and it’s been accepted, a survey will allow you to make an informed decision about how much you’re willing to pay, by taking into consideration any problems that you may need to deal with once you own the property.
Evidence from the survey gives you a high bargaining chip which allows you to negotiate the buying price.
You can budget for any repairs you’ll need to make or ask the current owner to resolve any issues before you pay the full price and move in.
What is a survey likely to tell me?
If you don’t conduct a residential survey, you’re stepping into the unknown.
The last thing you want is to move in and discover you have £10,000 of repairs to deal with to make your house a liveable home.
Some homes have hidden horrors like damp, faulty electrical wiring, or crumbling walls.
You may not notice these flaws on your original tour of the property because you’re so smitten with its surface appearance.
When you have a qualified professional look in more depth, these problems may become evident. The survey will be able to identify any potentially costly problems that may not be noticeable at first glance.
