A Few FAQs....
No. If you need a mortgage to buy your house then a lender will need you to pay for a mortgage valuation report. However, this is not a survey and should not be mistaken as such. A mortgage valuation report is just that - a valuation of the property for the mortgage lender to confirm that the property is worth the amount that you want to borrow. However, this report will only highlight obvious defects. For a full survey the surveyor works for the buyer and will conduct a more detailed examination into the property's structural integrity, repairs, maintenance and condition.
When going out to tender for a building, development or renovation project or even a small extension, it is important that you are able to compare the quotations on a like for like basis from the contractors you ask. Merely providing them with a set of plans will not suffice as it could be interpreted in different ways.
It is our belief and experience that the more information you can provide to the builder about EXACTLY what you want the builder to include in his quote the more accurate the quote will be and the less scope you give the builder to find 'extras' to add to the bill at the end. this is a very short answer to a complicated question and for further advice please contact us by telephone.
We accept appointments from Building Owners proposing to undertake construction work coming under the Party Wall etc Act 1996 or on behalf of adjoining owners to safeguard their interests when such work is being carried out that could affect their property.
