A new home is one of the most important purchases you will make in your lifetime. It could be the place where you bring your children up, where you have your happiest moments and where you find the most peace. But, all too often a new home can turn into a “home from hell”.
According to research done by the RICS, 1 out of every 4 home-buyers rely solely on the basic valuation report, which is carried out by their mortgage lender’s surveyor. Consequently 25% of these home-buyers end up with unplanned works, sometimes costing up to over £1,000 in repair work.
Did you know that you can appoint your own surveyor (who works for you, not your mortgage lender) to carry out a full building survey and ensure that you’re not hit with any unexpected repair bills?
