I am well aware how expensive moving homes can be but missing vital points like home surveys can be a serious mistake to make.
Many homeowners when moving houses are trying to make as many savings as possible and quite often take short cuts that later come back to bite them. For example, house surveys are commonly skipped in the process of buying and selling when in reality, they are probably one of the soundest investments you could ever make!
With four in five homebuyers not bothering to get home surveys, are you going to be the next statistic facing huge repair bills?
Don’t Cut Corners
Like I have stated in previous blog articles, home surveys are incredibly important throughout the whole property market process. With misunderstanding being common practice on the property market and a lot of ‘cowboy surveyors’ actively searching for clients, finding the right home survey is the first step, with finding the right surveyor being the next.
One of the most common mistakes come from cash buyers, who without the guidance of lenders and mortgage providers, forget about surveyors and their purpose throughout purchases.

When Would I Need a Survey?
Needing a survey at your property depends on numerous factors. One example would be if you were buying an older property or one that had unusual design features, that you may decide to have a Building Survey carried out to make sure that the building is extensively searched, inside and out. Doing this will ensure that you get the advice needed on any repairs instantly and that you are making a confident purchase with this property.
Another option would be the Home Buyers Report that will reveal certain problems if you are just slightly unsure and need reassurance on the property in hand. Although it is not as intrusive as the Building Survey, you do also get a valuation at the same time to make sure that what you are paying, or about to pay, is accurate and true to condition of the property.
