A Building Survey is one of the most important documents that you need to have. It is a good idea to have a survey done prior to selling your house, this way if there is anything that needs to be done it can be done sooner rather than later, this will save you a lot of wasted time and people offering you less than your asking price. It is also great for buyers so they can see straight away that you have nothing to hide!
The building survey will give you a complete report on the construction and general condition of your property. We would suggest that all residential properties that are for sale have this survey done, whether the property you are buying or selling is 1 year old or it is 150 years old, you can never be too safe.
The main reason for a building Survey, is so you can be assured that you will not have any expensive repair bills to pay for, the only thing that the report does not include is testing for services, water, mains etc.
Make sure that you shop around for your building survey. There are a lot of companies who specialise in these matters available on the Internet; this is sometimes a good idea because these companies don’t have the overheads that others do, so they are able to do the same job cheaper.
