Getting a property survey quote online is the first step to understanding the details of your new property. Surveys are not primarily to give you worries about the condition of your new home, but to give you a full understanding about the structure and condition of the building.
Buying a house is stressful enough as it is, so why not let someone take an unbiased view and bring their findings to you? Often it’s a simple act of reassurance about your investment, and often gives you ideas of how to improve your new home once you’re there.
From a financial front, surveys can bring up faults that were not made clear from the outset, and can give you the chance to change your offer accordingly.
Your mortgage lender will arrange what’s called a Property Valuation, however this is mainly to reassure themselves about their loan to you – and often they make the assessment with a short drive-by visit.
