Why Do i need a survey?

Is your new home up to scratch?

It’s not a legal requirement to have a survey on a property you are buying, and at a time when you’re about to buy a property, it may seem like an unnecessary expense. However, a survey could save you money and stress in the long run.


Save on money and stress

In simple terms, a survey is a health inspection on the property, and if it reveals any issues, it puts you in a position to ask the seller to repair them before you progress with the purchase.

Alternatively, you may choose to renegotiate the final sale value to account for the cost of repairing them yourself – or you may even elect to pull out of the deal entirely.

At Beal’s we offer 3 types of survey…

TYPE one

Building survey

This is a more in depth report suited to larger or older properties and contains more detail in relation to the nature of construction, identified defects and specific remedies. Again it is a visual inspection of all exposed and accessible areas, including the roof void.Tests on service installations are not undertaken, although we can advise on the need for such tests by suitably qualified specialists should our visual inspection reveal the need to do so. Accessible drainage chambers will be inspected.

The report can be tailored to suit your particular needs and can include a valuation if required. These reports are often used as a checklist for defects and in order to obtain quotations from building contractors.

Type two

Homebuyer report

This is a popular report laid out in a standard format prepared by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and involves a thorough visual inspection of all readily visible areas, including the roof void. It is intended to provide a professional opinion as to whether the property is considered to be a good purchase at the agreed price.

The report is in logical headed sections and includes matters that we believe should be referred to your legal advisers for further investigation.

The report is a general guide to condition and value and is not suited to more individual, larger or older properties.

Type three

Valuation report

Clients may wish for a valuation report to confirm that an agreed price is a fair reflection of market value. Whilst such reports comment generally on the condition of a property, they do not constitute a survey and are commonly instructed for probate or matrimonial
