Detailed Explanation of Your Survey
We feel it is a critical part of surveying to explain, in detail what the report really means to the client. After each survey is sent to a client we call them to discuss the issues, evidence of them and what they may mean when it comes to the purchase of the property. This level of explanation is something that many larger firms do not have time to offer but without such detail you may find yourself missing something important.
Our area of expertise encompasses the whole Suffolk area and we have specific experience surveying properties throughout Framlingham, we ensure that our clients receive all the information they need promptly and with minimal delay. It is important to take a number of local factors into consideration when surveying a property, which is why we focus on establishing long lasting relationships throughout Suffolk in order to provide our clients with the very best service available.
It is important to remember that purchasing a property is one of the most important investments we will make in our lifetime, so it is essential that we have all the information needed and ready to hand when entering into negotiations. Generally a Mortgage Valuation is required when purchasing a property and this serves as a brief report purely for the benefit of the lender to ensure that the property provides enough security for the bank to lend upon. It does not detail the condition of the property and in some cases the buyer may not even see the Mortgage Valuation before it is sent to the lender.
In order to avoid any potentially nasty surprises with regards to the condition of the property in question, we therefore always recommend that a more in depth and detailed survey is conducted before any property negotiations are made.
Chiltern Associates offer three main services designed to give clients all the information they need when purchasing a property; HomeBuyer Reports, Building Surveys and Valuations. Each service is designed to suit the client’s individual needs. Our HomeBuyer Report provides an in depth analysis regarding the condition of the property as well as any noticeable and immediate problem areas. Our HomeBuyer Report is ideal for more modern properties and will include advice as to how any potential problems may be rectified.
For older, historic and listed properties it is advised that you request a Building Survey. Covering all aspects of the property as well as looking at any visible or drastic alterations that have been made to the property, a Building Survey offers professional advice on restoring and maintaining both older properties and timber framed properties. Specialist conservation advice is provided for listed properties as we have specific experience in addressing potential issues present in older properties that may not exist in more modern homes.
Our Valuations service is prompt and reliable. The service can be tailored to suit the specific needs of your situation, such as divorce cases, probate and other matters with complete discretion provided by our professional surveyors. Having valued a number of local properties throughout Framlingham, our team have specific experience with a variety of different properties and can give you specialist advice.
