Sometimes on specific occasions when humidity, settlements or any other kind of building problems are found in a property when having it inspected, a list of works to be carried out with a rough budget for them can be included in the Building Survey.
Clients may then use this information in order to do a counter-offer on properties, some of mine did get substantial discounts on their final sale price.
A survey is very convenient and important for potential buyers to know if properties are sound and/or if they need any repairing works and how much they will amount to.
So why not using the Building Survey and the repairing budget to try and get price reduced?
A Building Survey and possibly also other fees or works may end up being a way to save money.
