Home Survey Leeds

For most people, buying a home is one the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make. Every home owner could benefit from getting an expert opinion on the condition of your property. Whether you plan to live, rent or sell a house, you’ll definitely benefit from using our home survey Leeds team.

Why Is It Important To Use Our Home Survey Leeds Team?

When you’re looking for a house, one of the main contributors to your final decision is the price. When you finally settle on a house that you like and agree a price, you don’t want to find hidden or unexpected costs. On average, home buyers spend around £5,750 on repairs once they’ve moved into a new house. This is not the kind of surprise that anyone wants when they’ve just bought a house. This tends to happen when a trusted home survey isn’t conducted before buying a properly. If you’re considering buying a new home, we’d recommend you contacting our home survey Leeds team so they can make sure you won’t end up with those kind of surprise extra costs.

The main benefit of getting a home survey is to ensure you know as much as possible about the condition of a property before you commit into buy.

A lot of people think if they get a property valued, they’d be getting the same insights as a home survey, though this is not correct. A property valuation is seen to benefit for your lender rather than yourself. Our home survey Leeds team would highlight any potential problems that might be wrong with the property. This is to give you piece of mind when moving into your new property.

Our surveyors work to the highest industry standards and are always regulated to ensure your full protection.

Choose The Right Survey For Your Property

The type of house that you own can determine the type of survey you get.

Depending on the age and condition of your property will determine which report is best for you.

Your probably wondering what type of survey is right for you? The options are:

The Homebuyer Report

The Homebuyer Report provides you with a lot of necessary information about a property. This includes:

  • Any major problems with your property
  • A valuation and an insurance reinstatement value.
  • The Surveyor is non-invasive. Meaning that they won’t be looking behind furniture or pulling up floor boards so the report that gets drawn up is limited.

Recently there was a new level of survey introduced called a “Homebuyer Report without a valuation”. It is still under development, but it includes everything that the Homebuyer Report just without the valuation.

Building Survey

A building survey is expensive but defiantly be worth the investment:

  • The price of a building survey depends on the size of your home. It can range from under £500 right to £2000.
  • At the end of the extensive survey, you’ll be given a detailed report that will underline everything for you.
  • If you are looking buildings that are very old, listed, unusual timber framed, or they have thatched then the building survey can be valuable.
  • If you are considering doing some serious building work, then it’s a really good idea to have a building survey.
  • When conducting a building survey, the surveyor will look at absolutely everything from behind the sofa to under the floor boards.
  • It will also include any advise you might need when it comes to the timing and cost of any potential repair that might be necessary. It will also state what could happen if the repairs weren’t done.
