Why have an independent building survey? Caveat Emptor!
We recommend you always have an independent building survey as this will highlight any property problems. Caveat emptor means buyer beware and is why you need to have a building survey to find out if there are any problems within the property; the estate agent certainly will not advise you of any.
Remember the independent building surveyor that you employ will be the only person working for you with your interests at heart. As they are independent surveyors they are not working for an estate agents, bank or building society.
Downsizing to a retirement bungalow
Your last house move
When you are looking for the house that's going to be the last move when you are retiring or even keeping active it is very important that you find the right property for you.
What do the circles and ovals mean in our building surveys?
Many photographs and surveying sketches
Other surveying articles that may be of interest
The following articles may be of interest to you, but don't forget that we have written articles on many different areas of property:
Bungalows are ideal
As independent Surveyors we have carried out many surveys on bungalows which are very popular when couples or individuals decide to downsize. A property search for bungalow can take some time as with any property to find the ideal property which meets most of your essential criteria and if lucky some of your desirable criteria.
A two bedroom 1930s semi-detached bungalow in Kent set in an area of similar properties as well as houses with the front garden given over to off road parking and in good internal decorative order after viewing was decided to be an ideal property to down size to. 1st Associated.co.uk was delighted to help with a full structural survey whereby the property in its entirety is scrutinised for any structural issues.
Always meet your Surveyor at the property
When you enlist the help of an independent Surveyor to help you with your decision to buy or not to buy a property we always recommend that you take the time to go along to the property to meet the Surveyor. A meeting with the Surveyor can help as you can talk to them about any property issues as well as pointing out your concerns and aspirations for the property and we felt our clients certainly benefitted from meeting us at the property as they were able to ask many questions relating to the property.
Specialist surveying equipment always used on every building survey
Negotiating to reduce purchase price
AFTER receiving the survey report, which highlighted a number of issues with the property, our clients got their solicitor to negotiate a reduction in the purchase price based on these problems found by the chartered surveyor in the structural survey.
Happy ever after
