Buying a home
Certainly you can look it over yourself and this can give you some idea of its condition, but there is no doubt that a trained eye will show you all the problems which you would not pick up on. A survey might seem an unnecessary cost at the time, but you will kick yourself if you have to pay out thousands of pounds later on for major repairs of defects you didn’t know about when you bought it. If major defects are uncovered you might even think again about your purchase, or you could be in a position to renegotiate the price.
A home is a massive investment and it is worth paying a relatively small amount for a survey at this stage as it could save you much bigger sums, and lots of hassle, later on.
Building Survey (formerly known as ‘Structural Survey’)
Building Surveys are formally known as ‘Full Structural Surveys’ and are in essence an extremely detailed report on the property. We examine the structure and condition of the building very closely, noting any defects they may find which will need your attention. A Building Survey is suitable for houses that are of a considerable age, may have become dilapidated, have undergone significant alterations or where major alteration work is planned by the purchaser.
Each Building Survey is priced per property, if you could please contact us and we will provide a competitive fee quotation.
VAT will be added to the above costs.
GP Property Advisors regularly work with clients, solicitors and property funds throughout North Wales and the North West of England.
