Why should I get a surveyor to carry out a pre-acquisition on a house I’m buying?
A surveyor can provide an independent, professional opinion of the condition of the property, as well as identify any potential issues that may affect the value of the property. The surveyor can also advise on any necessary repairs and/or improvements that may be required to make the property safe and habitable. This can help ensure that the buyer makes an informed decision when purchasing a property.
Can a Surveyor help reduce the asking price on a property?
Yes, a surveyor can help to identify any issues with the property which may result in a reduction in the asking price. This could include issues such as structural damage, damp, or any other defects that may need to be addressed prior to purchase.
