The importance of building surveys, according to Newcastle Building Surveyors

Searching for Newcastle building surveyors?

Before buying a house, a fifth of the public has been found to engage the services of a chartered surveyor to carry out an assessment of the property and its condition.

A building survey can highlight issues with a house that may have previously gone unnoticed, issues that could end up costing a lot of money and time to fix in the future. A building survey then gives buyers the chance to get ahead and make an informed decision with peace of mind.

But why is a building survey necessary?
Building surveys are commissioned as a way of making sure that buyers have all the facts before they go to sign on the dotted line of a contract.

If you’re unsure about the quality or integrity of a property then a building survey will uncover any issues and help to rule out the possibility of discovering major issues further on down the line. Nobody likes a nasty surprise, especially when it comes to buying a home, and a survey will help you to avoid this stress, as well as giving you the opportunity to make repairs at your own pace based on the importance and severity of the work that needs to be done.

AJ Walton, Newcastle building surveyors, recommend a survey if…

  • You are worried in any way about the building’s integrity or construction
  • A building contains any old features, such as a thatched roof or timber frames
  • There are any visible problems or issues with the building
  • A building is listed
