Why Do I Need A Home Survey?
A home survey will provide you with positive advice and security on the most expensive purchase you are likely to make. It is important that an experienced and qualified surveyor gives advice with regard to the proposed purchase. We are also able to advise with regard to alterations, extensions, conversions, and planning issues. We specialise in older properties and the survey will cover areas which you are unable to inspect such as drainage and roof spaces.
Clients X recently proposed a purchase of a two bedroom terraced former Local Authority property in Swindon, the property had a roof conversion which had been undertaken without relevant Local Authority approvals. The clients thought they were purchasing a four bedroom property and following inspection it was found that the upper construction was illegal and structurally unsound requiring £20,000 worth of remedial works. This was on a purchase price of £100,000; the clients were totally unaware of the potential loss.
Client Y proposed to rent a 60,000 square foot warehouse adjacent to their existing building which had 2 years remaining on a 25 year full repairing lease. Following a Condition Survey it was found that a new roof covering was required amounting to £120,000 worth of work and the electrical installation was in very poor condition requiring replacement. In addition it was pointed out to the client that he would be responsible for carrying out internal redecoration and other repair works amounting to a potential loss in 2 years of £250,000. The client took advice to renegotiate the terms of the proposed lease and to attach a Condition Survey to prevent any liability at termination of the lease.
