Is a Property Survey Worth the Cost?

“Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions most people will ever make and yet many consumers are so blind to the facts. Serious faults are difficult to identify and costly to repair. By not being aware of them, consumers are risking a potential home buying time bomb. This can cause extreme stress and financial strain on homeowners who are often stuck with a property they no longer want but cannot sell.”

 - Peter Bolton King, RICS Global Residential Director.

Do I need a HomeBuyer Survey?

Homebuyer Survey Reports are the best way to avoid unexpected repair costs after you move in.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) estimate that home owners that bought a house without a homebuyer report spent an average of £5,750 after they move in on repairs. Prior knowledge of any major defects can be used to negotiate with the seller prior to completing the purchase

Legally you are not required to have a HomeBuyer Survey, but whether you are buying for cash or drawing down a mortgage, it is best to know what repairs may be required in the near future.
