The Importance of a Survey
Essentially a Mortgage Valuation is normally required to ensure that the property provides enough security for the bank to safely lend upon, however in reality this is not a report on the condition of the property. The Mortgage Valuation is normally only done for the benefit of the lender and as such the buyer may never even see the report. A more thoroughly detailed survey is always recommended by a professional surveyor so as to avoid any potential costs should any repairs prove essential on a given property.
A Comprehensive Building Survey encompasses a thorough analysis of the structure and condition of the property, including looking at all visible and accessible areas of the property. This is then consolidated in a typed up report that also lists any immediate or problematic defects found within the property as well as advice on how to rectify these, including potential reparation costs. A Comprehensive Building Survey is essential as it brings to light any defects which the buyer may not have noticed upon a first viewing, potentially saving hundreds or even thousands of pounds on repairs.
The purchase of a property can be one of the most important investments we make in our lifetime, so it is essential that we enter into property negotiations knowing the full details on the condition of the property in question. This allows our clients to make a more informed decision as to proceed with negotiations, to negotiate for a separate price in light of any defects found within the survey, or even to choose not to purchase the property.
