Using a RICS chartered Surveyor is beneficial for several reasons, especially when it involves one of the largest purchases you’ll ever make. Home buyer surveys can offer you some peace of mind before your completion date and ensure you know the true condition of your new home. Let’s take a look at all of the top reasons that using a chartered surveyor for your home purchase is a great idea.

They have expertise and knowledge that you just don’t have.

As highly trained individuals, Chartered Surveyors know what they’re doing when it comes to property, building, and land. They hold in-depth knowledge about the property laws and regulations in your area, as well as the industry standards that are expected for a home. This can be invaluable when you are dealing with property issues that can become complex over time. You need to know that the home that you are moving into is meeting the law and regulations for safety and for structure. Your surveyor will be able to tell you whether or not your property is ready for you to move into, or whether or not you should be waiting.

They can help you with the property valuation

Childhood surveyors know what they’re doing when it comes to property valuation. Not only will you get an accurate assessment of the value of your property, but this will be helpful for both sales tax or purchase insurance. The expertise of a chartered surveyor here shows that you received a valuation that’s accurate based on the market conditions as well as the specifics of the property. If you know that you can get your home valued properly with a chartered surveyor at your side, you’ll know that you’ll be able to avoid cutting any corners.

Chartered Surveyors can help with building surveys

When you buy or you sell a property, you may need a chartered surveyor to work with you to conduct a thorough building survey. This survey identifies any defects, problems, or structural issues that could change the value of the property or prevent you from moving in in the first place. From here, your chartered surveyor will work with you to make informed decisions to avoid costly surprises in the future and answer any questions you might have about the property itself. 

Get support with project management

Did you know that Chartered Surveyors are involved in project management for all development and construction properties? If your particular surveyor is on your side with your project, you’re going to ensure that the planning, design and construction phases of your home go off without a hitch. They are able to oversee all of these phases to ensure that your project is completed on time, but also within budget and to the required and lawful quality standards. You need your home to be ready for you to move into, and a property surveyor can help you with that.

Home buyer surveys can give you peace of mind

If you are considering renovation or property development, Chartered Surveyors are able to offer you valuable advice on the planning, regulations, construction costs, potential project management, load, and feasibility of the project in general. With their input, you’ll be able to navigate any complexities of the property development cycle and you’ll be able to do it successfully. This is something you absolutely need before you buy a house, because if you are buying something blind, you might find it difficult to manage realizing that your home is not up to regulation.

Managing your land and your property

Did you know that Chartered Surveyors are involved in the management of both land and property? This includes anything from rent reviews, maintenance inspections, facilities management and lease agreements. With their expertise, you’ll be able to maximize the value of your asset and ensure that property management is efficiently done.

An environmental impact assessment can be completed

Chartered Surveyors conduct environmental assessments that enable the evaluation of the effects on the surrounding environment. This is an essential thing for compliance with environmental regulations, as well as ensuring sustainable development practices. With an environmental impact assessment, you can ensure that your home is up to environmental regulation and standards.

They hold professional ethics and standards

There is a strict code of ethics and standards that have to be adhered to in the property business and chartered surveyors are a part of that. Working alongside a chartered surveyor ensures that you feel confident about the service and advice you are receiving. You need to rely on the advice you are given by a chartered surveyor so that you can ensure that your home purchase is an easy one.
