Home Buyer Survey
Are you wanting to know more about a Home Buyer Survey or a Structural Survey?
Home Buyer Survey or Structural Survey?
Are you undecided about which type of survey is best a home buyer survey or structural survey? Definitely a structural survey. Why?
Do you want peace of mind that you are not buying a problem property? Then a structural survey rather than a home buyer survey, which is far more in-depth, is what we recommend. A structural survey unlike a home buyer survey will include costs for any building work that is required to make good any property defects. These costs can be used to negotiate on the purchase price and help to save you money. With a home buyer survey your Surveyor will generally not meet you at the property whereas with a structural survey you can. To meet your Surveyor at the property is invaluable as you will be able to talk through any concerns or get advice on future extension plans.
A structural survey is always best
I called 1stAssociated regarding a survey on a ground floor apartment I was interested in buying. I had concerns as my partner has breathing difficulties and I had seen some internal dampness in the back bedroom when I viewed the property. I was sent an example survey and given a great quote and I was also advised the Surveyor would be more than happy for me to attend the survey so I decided to go ahead. Everything was arranged very efficiently and after meeting the Surveyor at the property, who was fantastic, I received a full structural survey report. Due to the finding of the structural survey I will not be going ahead with purchasing this property but am at present looking at another property, which I will definitely ask 1stAssociated Surveyors to survey.

We booked a structural survey on an 1800's terrace we were interested in purchasing. We received a fantastic report, which was so easy to follow and understand and even included anticipated costs for the work required. This really helped us when we were looking for quotes from builders. We are please to say we will be purchasing the property and will be recommending 1stAssociated Surveyors to our friends and family. Thanks again!

We booked a structural survey on a 1930's/1950's semi detached property we were interested in buying. We met the Surveyor at the property, which was very useful as he highlighted problems we were not aware of. Due to the internal and external cracking in the property we are undecided as yet as to whether we will be going ahead. The Surveyor advised he is more than happy to discuss any concerns we may have by phone so we may well call him. Overall we found the survey report easy to understand and everyone involved very helpful. Thank you
