Houses are complicated and expensive things to buy. There are lots of different components and if things are going wrong it can cost thousands to put them right. Before you buy a house, you need to know what you are taking on. A professional survey will tell you whether there is anything that needs to be sorted out and whether you are paying the right price.
Doesn’t the mortgage company sort out a survey?
A mortgage valuation is not a survey. All responsible lenders will tell you this. It is a brief inspection to tell the lender whether it is safe to lend the money. Even if problems are found they won’t necessarily be mentioned if they don’t affect the security. Every house needs a proper survey.
Don’t surveys just cover themselves with vague advice and caveats?
At Gowers Surveyors we are committed to helping you buy the house, fully informed and at the right price. We do not try to put you off unnecessarily. We are aware of this negative image in the profession and believe that spending longer at the house and talking it through with you before and after (often several times) will ensure that in the vast majority of cases you can proceed with confidence.
At Gowers Surveyors we specialise in high quality surveys. We’ll point out the good and bad, putting it all into context, so you can move forward with the purchase, with confidence. Call now to book.
