Whether you are a buying a home to live in yourself or a property as a buy-to-let landlord, it is important to have the right level of support and assistance for this important step. With years of experience providing surveys and valuations for modern homes, flats and historic buildings in the area of Ipswich and further afield, Chiltern Associates provide client with all the information they need in order to proceed with their property purchase.
A mortgage valuation is very basic, with just the basic information for the lender. Chiltern Associates strongly advise on getting a more in depth and thorough survey when considering a house or flat for purchase. Purchasing a property is one of, if not the single most important investment of your life, so you need all the information to hand from an independent locally based professional practice.
Two independent research studies have shown that even the most basic survey from an independent chartered surveyor can save you thousands of pounds, by flagging up hidden defects that an untrained eye would miss, our experienced surveyors will highlight all potential issues, giving you the tools to negotiate the price of the property. It will also put your mind at rest when worrying about a crack you can see or a damp patch. Saving you both time and money.
Chiltern Associates offer a range of different surveys ranging from the valuation to a RICS Home Buyer Report to a full building survey. Each will consist of a highly detailed report that will highlight any potential problem areas or immediate problem areas, and provide essential advice on how these issues can be fixed.
Home Buyers Surveys are suitable for more modern properties, whereas Building Surveys are usually carried out on older properties that require a more in depth analysis of potential problem areas that need more extensive refurbishment or renovation.
The RICS recommends, as do we, that all pre 1900 properties be the subject of a building survey.
