Surveys

headerBenefits of having a residential survey

Whether you’re buying your very first home or moving again, it’s vital that you have a house survey done. You’re going to be spending a lot of money for your new property and a residential survey can help you find out about the condition of the building you’re buying.

Is having a survey really necessary?

With the evidence from the survey, you have a great bargaining chip to negotiate the buying price, to allow you to budget for any repairs you will need to make, or ask for the issues to be resolved before you pay the full price and move in.

What is a survey likely to tell me?

Some homes have hidden horrors like damp, faulty electrical wiring, or crumbling walls, which you may not notice on your original tour of the property because you’re so smitten with its overall surface appearance. It’s not until you have a qualified professional take a look in more depth that problems may become apparent, so the survey will be able to identify any potential costly problems that may not be noticeable at first glance.
