The Homebuyer Service - explained

It comprises:

  • an inspection of the property
  • a concise Report based on the Inspection
  • the Valuation which is part of the Report.

The Surveyors main objective in the Homebuyer Survey is to give clients considering buying a particular property the professional advice which will assist them
to make a reasoned judgment on whether or not to proceed with the purchase
to assess whether or not the Property is a reasonable purchase at the agreed price
to be clear what decisions and actions should be taken before contracts are exchanged.

The Homebuyer Service therefore covers the general condition of the property and particular features which affect its present value and its future resale. The report focuses on what the surveyor judges to be urgent or significant matters. Significant matters are those which typically in negotiations over price would be reflected in the amount finally agreed.
