A Surveyor

Surveyors are an incredibly important part of buying and selling a home. Sadly the biggest problem caused when buying and selling a home is that few buyers pay for a survey, believing that the mortgage valuation buyers must pay for to their lender is sufficient to find out if there is something wrong with the property: it absolutely isn’t!

A good independent surveyor is an invaluable resource for buyers. Let me ask you this, would you buy a car without a valid MOT? Would you service a boiler yourself (hopefully not, it is illegal!)? Then whatever you do, don’t pay out hundreds of thousands of pounds on a building that you haven’t had thoroughly checked from top to bottom!

Read the Top Five Things you need to know about when Choosing a Surveyor to ensure you choose the right surveyor.
