RECENT SURVEYS July 2018

The properties listed below have a variance of maintenance problems associated with them. From the drains up which would have cost the purchasers a small fortune should they not have had a full stuctural survey on them. One comment recently,  I am glad it was raining when you went because when I went I was wearing rose tinted glasses, can’t say I was that happy that it was raining! I was a little surprised when carrying out a survey on the edge of a town to find it had a septic tank, one I feel needs to be connected to the mains.

From my experience even the new houses need a good survey and buying a brand new house is not the way to solve maintenance problems.
