Buying a house is likely to be the most expensive purchase you will make, so it makes sense to do everything you can to avoid pitfalls and mistakes.
Getting a pre-purchase report from a building surveyor is a good idea. But keep in mind that these reports are based on an inspection of the property and don't tell the whole story.
We hold information about properties that may not be immediately obvious. So checking our records may answer important questions - even those you hadn't thought to ask.
For sellers, getting a report before marketing a property can ensure buyers don't unearth any unexpected issues. Even better, sellers can share the report with prospective buyers and potentially speed up the sale process.
We have a number of reports available about properties - check out the LIM pages on our website for more information.
