A survey is a type of ‘health check’ for a building and will identify potential problems with it. The results of a survey should help you to make a more informed decision about the building and offer reassurance and peace of mind. If you are unfamiliar with these reports, the technical language can occasionally be alarming. But you can relax with us; our expert surveying consultants can explain all the points.
If you are buying a property, you should have a survey done before you exchange contracts with the vendor. A survey can actually save you money, especially if serious problems are identified as you can often renegotiate the sale price of the property to reflect the cost of necessary repairs, or you may decide not to proceed at all.
