What is a Home Buyers Survey?
Previously known as a Homebuyer's Report, the Level 2 Survey and Valuation Report aims to give you professional advice from one of our Chartered Surveyors to help you to:
Make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying the property.
Take account of any repairs or replacements the property needs.
Consider what further advice you should take before exchanging contracts.
Why do you need a Home Buyers survey?
By covering crucial aspects of your home, the homebuyer report provides you with visibility on any underlying issues to the property. This will help avoid unexpected and expensive costs down the line, allow you to negotiate a better price on the house or even reconsider buying the property at all.
