Do I Need a Survey?

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

You've probably heard home surveys mentioned throughout your purchase, but do you really 'need' a survey? We explain the benefits.

When explaining the importance of a survey, we like to use the car analogy. Would you buy a car without taking it for a test drive? The answer is most likely no. So why would you buy a house without looking at the details?

Buying a property is most likely the biggest investment you will ever make and a survey offers the opportunity to have an expert on your side to help you understand the finer details about your future property.

We are aware that when investing in a property you’re already facing large expenses in order to cut through the red tape and you may be thinking you can save money by going for a basic survey. This is an understandable viewpoint; however, this could cost you much more in the long run. By investing in a full survey you will be made aware of any major defects in the property before you buy. This means that you could ask for money off the property to compensate for works required or it may make you aware that the property is not a sound investment. A survey can cost you hundreds of pounds, however it also could save you thousands. Don’t try to cut corners when buying a property. Let us help you choose the right survey and let our experts take care of the rest.
