Speak to an Expert
We feel it is very important to not only get a property survey but to also understand that survey. This is why we always make time after a report has been sent to discuss all the details with the client. It is during this process where we go over any issues found at the property, the reasons and evidence behind them and what they may mean for the property purchase itself. This is something that some larger practices and bank services simply cannot offer and as a result leave buyers in a risky position.
