Can You Risk Not Having A Homebuyers Survey Report?

For most of us, buying a home is the biggest purchase we will ever make – so it pays to get it right. All too often we hear stories of people who are looking to buy or sell a property and cut corners by not getting an independent professional to carry out a survey into its actual condition.

This is worrying to say the least as – according to research by the RICS – almost a fifth of buyers who didn’t commission a home survey were stuck with a house they would have thought twice about if they’d been aware of its true condition. What’s more, the average bill for putting these faults right came in at almost £6,000.Just because a house looks alright on first inspection doesn’t mean there aren’t serious and costly underlying problems such as structural defects, dry rot or even subsidence. Clearly, when buying a home, money is always tight. But does anybody really want to go through the stress and financial strain of buying somewhere riddled with problems that they have to spend potentially large sums of money to rectify? A home survey is a small price to pay to avoid this time bomb. A survey ensures buyers are informed about the condition of the property and armed with the necessary information to negotiate the fairest deal. When it comes to buying or selling to a property, forewarned definitely is forearmed.For more information call Boxall Brown & Jones on 01332 383838
