Martin's Blog - Swat up on Surveys
Not having a survey done on a property you intend to buy could spell disaster. A professional surveyor can uncover hidden problems or faults with a house that you don’t have the knowhow to spot. If you are taking out a mortgage to buy a home, the lender will insist that a basic survey is carried out - so they know what they are getting as security. Even if you’re not borrowing money, you should still get a proper survey done. The cost is a small price to pay compared with the bill you could face if you buy unaware of serious defects.
