Damp and Timber Specialists for 50 years

Is getting a homebuyer survey worth it?

Whilst a homebuyer survey is not a legal requirement, it is usually recommended by solicitors and will give you peace of mind that there are no serious structural or damp issues with the property you are looking to buy. 

According to RICS, the average new homeowner can expect to spend a significant amount on hidden repair costs. Getting a homebuyer survey will ensure that you don’t end up walking blindly into a costly mistake. You can also use the results of a homebuyer report to renegotiate the price of the property, if the repair work required is significant.

It is worth noting that a mortgage valuation is not the same as homebuyer survey, and is highly unlikely to show up any hidden structural issues that could become apparent once you move in.

A homebuyer survey is never a bad choice and can save you thousands further down the line. Prokil has over 50 years’ experience providing damp and timber services throughout the South. Our specialists are fully certified to carry out your homebuyer survey, and can be trusted to produce a comprehensive and detailed report.

Because damp and rot can penetrate deep into a building’s structure, the signs are often impossible to spot by naked eye alone. A homebuyer survey must be carried out by an expert who has the knowledge and equipment to diagnose any issues hidden within the walls, floors, drainage and ceilings of the property.

The specialists at Prokil have performed surveys on thousands of properties across the South. We have access to state-of-the-art tools and know how to identify even the most well-hidden signs of damp and timber rot, giving you peace of mind that all potential problems will be detected before you move in.
