Don't make the mistake of assuming that your mortgage survey will uncover any potential structural issues in the property you're purchasing. Older homes, in particular, may be prone to problems such as damp, wood rot, or even subsidence. Addressing these issues can be expensive, and if left untreated, they can have a devastating impact on your home.
When buying a property, especially an older one, it's highly advisable to consider obtaining a detailed property survey from a chartered property surveyor. This proactive step can save you from costly surprises down the line and provide you with valuable insights into the condition of the property.
Both the Consumers Association and the Council of Mortgage Lenders strongly recommend that home buyers engage the services of a surveyor who is accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This accreditation ensures that the surveyor meets high professional standards and possesses the necessary expertise to perform thorough property surveys. Cutting corners on this crucial aspect of the home buying process is not advisable.
At Prospect, our property surveyors are RICS accredited and have undergone comprehensive training to identify various issues that may affect a property. They are equipped to detect problems related to subsidence, structural integrity, drainage, dampness, roofing, electrics, and more. We offer a wide range of RICS-approved property surveys, including the commonly sought-after homebuyers survey as well as the more extensive full structural surveys. Additionally, our property surveyors can provide the necessary RICS property valuations for shared ownership properties.
Don't take unnecessary risks when it comes to purchasing your home. Ensure peace of mind by seeking professional advice and obtaining the appropriate property survey.
