Short Version - No sale No
Estate agents sometimes have a bad reputation. However they are often very good
at what they do and so good you don't notice they are doing it.
Estate agents sell houses and they work for the house seller (often
known as the vendor). They are very skilled at selling houses
and they usually give the impression that they are working for you. They usually operate on a commission, therefore you should appreciate
they have to sell to make a living.

Why we always recommend having an independent building survey?
Always have an independent building survey as this will pin point 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
Our photos and sketches and what the circles and ovals mean in our building surveys?
We use throughout our survey reports to make them as clear as possible many photographs. We also have our own unique set of survey sketches to make the property problem crystal clear. We literally have commissioned hundreds of our own survey sketches developed over many years depicting property issues.
We also use circles and ovals on our photographs and sketches to highlight certain areas like the sketch example below.
