Reasons to get a Home Survey !
When purchasing a new property a vendor is under no legal obligation to disclose faults or potential faults a property has and therefore can never be relied on. If you are getting a mortgage and a valuer comes around all they are doing is generating a valuation for the benefit of the lender to ensure that the property is worth the money it is considering lending.
There is no focus on how the property is structurally and there is no obligation on the lender releasing this information to you other than the valuation.
On average, home buyers spend £5750 on repairs once they move into their new home according to research by The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
This is where the home survey comes into play. When you purchase a new house you want to make sure it structurally safe and doesn’t require any large amount of work doing to it. A survey will show you any problems that you wouldn’t always spot with the naked eye. This really does offer you the reassurance when purchasing your dream home it’s not going to fall down drown you or shock you.
