a comprehensive service to clients on all

still continues to trade under the name Daniells

If you need a mortgage for your purchase,
your lender is likely to require a valuation of
the property regardless of its age, condition
or value. Whilst this valuation safeguards the
interests of the lender, it does little to protect
the purchaser and may not show if a property
has hidden defects which can undermine its
value and cause untold problems in the future.
You should obtain a survey to provide you with
enough information about the property.
If you are a “cash buyer” that does not need a
mortgage it is equally important to arrange for
a survey to protect your interests.
All prospective home purchasers should obtain
a detailed survey report such as a Homebuyer
Survey and Valuation or the more in-depth
Building Survey. These surveys are aimed at
identifying defects which require repair in
order to prevent further deterioration and
possible associated damage.
The survey will also draw attention to defects
which can have a significant affect on value
and can form the basis for further negotiation
on the purchase price. Often, the cost of the
survey is only a fraction of the saving made
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors
Homebuyer Survey and Valuation is suited to
most residential property. Obviously the cost
of a survey will vary depending on the purchase
price and type of property, as well as the type
of survey required.
Following the inspection they will be happy to
discuss their findings with you and advise you
on the best course of action.
