The Importance of a Survey
It is normally a requirement to have a Mortgage Valuation when making an offer on a property, however it is commonly misconstrued that the Mortgage Valuation provides information as to the condition of the property in question. In reality a Mortgage Valuation serves only as a brief report designed to show that the property in question provides enough financial security for the bank to safely lend upon. It is conducted purely for the benefit of the lender and as such the buyer may never even see the Mortgage Valuation.
A Comprehensive Building Survey provided by Gowers Surveyors consists of a thoroughly detailed analysis of the property in its entirety, including the foundations, construction and overall structure of the property. The survey also looks at roofing, wiring, plumbing, potential damp spots and all visible and accessible elements of the property. The survey will highlight any immediate or problematic defects present within the property, providing advice on how these defects may be amended. Some reports will also provide detailed photographs and an approximation of the costs needed to conduct these reparations.
Purchasing a property of any type is often considered to be one of the most important investments we can make in our lifetime. Therefore a professional surveyor will always recommend a more in depth report is conducted, so as to avoid any nasty surprises later on in the purchase, where reparations and renovations are needed.
