Remember, always get a survey!

Remember…always get a survey!  Hidden defects such as dry or wet rot, structural movement or dampness are some of the common defects our team often find. These can often get worse over time if left untreated and could be an expensive problem to fix once you have moved in.

We can highlight specific defects that may not be immediately obvious when you have initially viewed your dream property. No two properties are the same, and the knowledge and experience of our surveyors can help to identify issues and provide you with the whole picture before making that commitment.

Here are a couple of recent photos of retrofitted damp treatment that could be doing more harm than good. These are quite obvious to the naked eye, however we helped identify future issues, make recommendations for action and provide the buyers with confidence of the complete picture of the property they were buying.

Traditional properties often don’t like modern interventions. Like the pictures shown, these often mask a symptom rather than diagnose the cause. All homes are subject to some defects during their lifespan, so before making that investment. Remember, always get a survey.

Contact us to discuss the property you are purchasing and we will discuss the right survey for you.
