What is a residential surveyor?
Have you ever bought a domestic property? If so, you will know how important it is to commission a residential surveyor to assess its condition before you commit to buying. Without a survey you run the risk of finding out your dream home is really a nightmare in disguise. Wood worm, building movement, Japanese knotweed in the garden – these are all things to look out for when buying a property. Residential surveyors are specially trained to carry out property visits and identify defects such as these, helping homebuyers to protect their investments and even negotiate on price.
