Buyers’ Guide – Survey


Make sure you have a survey – it could save you money in the long run by spotting any problems.

Top Tips for Survey

  • Once your offer is accepted, tell your mortgage lender.
  • They will complete a valuation to ensure the property is worth the money that they are lending.  
  • Instruct a surveyor to carry out a survey.
  • This will highlight any problems with the property, and you can find out how much these will cost you to rectify.
  • Use the information to renegotiate the sale price.
  • Or tell the seller certain repairs need to be carried out before contracts are exchanged.
