Home surveys

A home survey is an inspection by an expert home surveyor of the house you’re buying or selling to determine its condition. Whoever instructs the survey (usually the buyer) will get a report at the end with the results. Property surveys aren’t essential but can be recommended as it’s a great way to know the condition of the home you’re wanting to buy.
