A survey on a property can save a lot of extra hassle in what is already a traditionally stressful situation. There’s a common misconception that a survey may delay procedures when buying a house, but in reality, it will give you all of the information you could need in order to make the best decision possible when you choose to move. As if that wasn’t enough, it could also prove more financially beneficial in the long run. In short, a call to an AJ Walton property surveyor in Newcastle can save you money.

What is a property survey?

A property survey will give you a detailed breakdown of the condition of a property, inside and out. If there are any issues found by your AJ Walton professional during a property survey in Newcastle, they will give you an itemised list of the points that need addressing. These can include:

A thorough analysis of the safety of the property’s wiring

A list of major or minor repairs needed to the interior and exterior

Subsidence or other structural concerns such as deteriorating wall integrity.

Why is a survey necessary?

The most pressing reason to commission a property survey is that it will help you to be prepared, ruling out the discovery of any nasty surprises once you have moved into what seemed like your dream house.

How you act on the results is down to you, however, and it may be that you choose to leave some of the most minor issues found to be fixed at a later date when they’re more pressing. A survey shouldn’t dampen your excitement for a property, but it will help you make the choice to buy with all the facts in your hands.

  • You have any questions about the integrity of the property.
