Why should you have a survey?
A survey should not be confused with a mortgage valuation report which will not give you an assessment of the condition of the property or advice about repairs and maintenance. On average, home buyers spend £5,750 on repairs once moved into their new home. This is often down to not having a proper survey carried out.
Your home is likely to be one of the most expensive purchases you ever make, so ensure you know as much as you can about its true condition before you commit to buy. Having a survey conducted by a qualified member of RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) will give you:
- Peace of mind that you know the property and the risks it may carry.
- Confidence that you can make an offer that reflects the true circumstances of the property.
- Reassurance that your surveyor is delivering a high quality, reliable and cost effective service based on RICS standards of practice.
- A clear understanding of your property thanks to a report written in plain English with simple colour-coding to illustrate the surveyors findings.
By commissioning a RICS Home Survey you can feel assured that the service you receive is impartial and reliable.
