An unnecessary risk...
As this video explained back in 2013, more and more families are deciding to forego a full building survey in order to preserve funds for their house purchase. Four years ago, 20% of those who didn’t take a survey and proceeded with their purchase subsequently discovered faults that would have been identified.
As Raphael Stipic, a leading building surveyor in Cambridge, observes, a full building survey is a wise investment. ‘It’s important to remember that a mortgage valuation is not a survey,’ he says. ‘We therefore encourage clients to commission a building survey before buying a property, irrespective of its age. In the last twelve months alone we’ve saved our clients significant sums by uncovering defects and issues which have affected the value - and therefore the sale price - of the property. In some cases, our clients have even walked away from the deal having read our survey report.’
To book a full building survey, call Raphael Stipic at Anglian Home Surveyors on 01223 661439.
