How can you help?
During your own building inspections you may have noticed some areas of concern. Please note them down so we can pay them particular attention. Especially if you have future plans for the home, we will be delighted to give you advice and ideas from our experience as renovators and restorers.
What if a major fault or defect is detected?
Don’t despair! Firstly it is very rare, and really – most faults can be fixed. Secondly, after an accurate assessment of the problem and the cost of rectification are established, you may be in a position to negotiate through the agent with the vendor.
Sadly, some inspectors seem to be ‘panic merchants’ and don’t take the time to give the intending buyer a calm rational explanation of the facts. Many a sale has fallen through unnecessarily and a real ‘dream home’ lost.
All houses, especially older homes have many minor faults and while these are noticed, we find it unproductive and unnecessary to list them. We’ll happily give you advice on repair and any preventative measures required to protect your investment.
How soon will you have your results?
Instantly. If you join us on the inspection, we will give you a verbal report then and there. If you can’t be there we will personally phone through the results as early as it suits you. Your typed (confidential) report will follow via email to you or your solicitor as you direct.
