5. The Survey

5. The Survey

Your mortgage lender, if you have one, will arrange a survey of the property, to ensure that the price you are offering is realistic for their loan to you.
This will usually be a valuation report but you can upgrade to a Homebuyer’s Report which gives more detail on the condition of the property – usually at an added cost. You won’t usually receive a valuation survey but if you have upgraded and have received a Homebuyers, please bear in mind that this is a document that will point out the properties tiniest defects and flaws. These are often not of any significance but can come as quite a shock!!
If you want to go through the survey in our office then we are more than happy to go through it step by step to allay any fears you may have. If there are sections that need further investigation we can liaise with the seller and contractors to arrange a time for any quotes to be gathered. If there is anything adverse found after this, we are happy to negotiate further with the seller.
