Always know what you are buying
Buying a property is likely to be one of the most expensive purchases you will ever make, however many consumers continue to do so blind of the facts. It is vital to be fully informed about the condition of a property and the cost of repairs prior to exchanging contracts. Surveys are a ‘health check’ for buildings and can potentially save you thousands of pounds in costly repair bills.
Once the survey is complete you will have a clearer understanding of the condition of the property and if any repairs are required, you can also often re-negotiate the sale price to reflect the cost of the repairs.
We specialise in providing surveys for substantial, historic rural properties. Unfortunately we do not carry out RICS Homebuyer Reports nor any valuations under the Government Help to Buy scheme.
You should choose this survey if you are considering purchasing a large, old (pre-dating 1900) or run-down property, an unusual or substantially altered building or if you are planning major works. Our report is an extensive inspection which also aims to establish how the property is built and advise on future maintenance. It includes detailed information on the condition, visible defects, potential problems and considers environmental issues. The report will also identify issues that your Conveyancers may need to investigate further.
Our RICS qualified Chartered Surveyors, who have many years of experience carrying out a variety of surveys, can help advise you before you complete your purchase.
