Building Surveys & Homebuyers Surveys

Building Surveys & Homebuyers Surveys

Large financial commitments are made when purchasing a residential property. A Building survey or Homebuyers survey will draw attention to several defects that you were not aware of, which may have future implications on finances and occupancy.

Some of these defects may require attention before occupation and may require considerable expenditure. Although a building or homebuyers survey will cost a few hundred pounds, the identification of defects normally enables the purchase price to be reduced by far more than the cost of the survey. 

Building surveys are normally for houses built before 1900 or where major building works have been carried out. Homebuyers surveys are normally suitable for most other properties and also contain a property valuation.
