What Can Happen If You Do Not Get a Survey

Buying property is, without a doubt, one of the biggest investments you will ever make. During these uncertain times, it only seems logical that you would want to protect this purchase by ensuring that the house is in good working condition.

All that you need to do is spend a relatively small amount on a survey and you can rest assured that you will be avoiding any potential expenses or general uncertainty.

Well, here are some of the potential dangers you can avoid, simply by getting a survey.

17% of customers, who didn’t get a survey, typically spend up to £12,000 – would you?

A survey inspects the property to ensure that any unapparent defects such as wet or dry rot, problems with the roof or any general anomalies are highlighted – so that you can make an informed decision. Many of which can get progressively worse and more expensive once you move in. These kinds of shortcomings typically end up costing 17% of new homeowners more than £12,000 on average, to make their homes habitable.

You can use the survey to renegotiate the price                 

Furthermore, if your survey finds any hidden damages or deficiencies, this can be used to broker the price with the seller. By using this invaluable knowledge and advice from an expert working in the field, you could potentially reduce the asking price by a significant amount.
