What can we help with?

Can I use the survey findings to renegotiate the price?

A property survey provides much useful and often unexpected information about urgent remedial work that may need doing. Since the purchase price was agreed ‘subject to contract and survey’, you are perfectly entitled to go back to the seller and negotiate a discount to remedy property defects flagged up in the survey. While there is no obligation by the seller to engage in a renegotiation or to offer to fix the issue before exchange, they may be motivated to do so to keep the sale on track.

Do I really need a property survey?

At Cosey Homes, we advise every homebuyer to have an independent survey carried out before they buy. A survey can help you find out whether the property is as good as it looks, and whether there are any issues with the building that you should be aware of. Regardless of the age of the property, a survey can often save buyers thousands of pounds in unexpected repairs later on, and equip them with sound reasons to renegotiate the purchase price.

Is a survey really necessary for a new build home?

While it would be wonderful to think that new build homes are sold in perfect condition, this is often not the case. Neither are you necessarily covered under the 10-year NHBC warranty, since the builder will have to accept responsibility for any building defects found. An independent RICS Condition Report (Level 1) or HomeBuyer Survey (Level 2) is your best reassurance that there are no major problems with the construction or materials used in the build.

Which survey do I need for a listed building?

If you are buying a period home or listed building, or indeed any home built with non-standard materials or methods, a RICS Building Survey (Level 3) is the right choice. Unlike a mid-range HomeBuyer Report (Level 2), this full Level 3 investigation provides enough depth and breadth to take the unique features of a historic character home into consideration, including specific repair and maintenance recommendations that are sympathetic to the building.

How to choose the right survey for your needs?

Not surprisingly, many homebuyers are confused by the different kinds of surveys and reports available. We completely understand that you need professional guidance and will be delighted to talk you through all the options including the pros and cons of each different survey, so you can make the best decision for your purchase. Cosey Homes is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), a leading industry body whose code of conduct and industry guidelines we comply with.

How long does it take for the report to arrive?

At Cosey Homes, we are acutely aware that our survey results are eagerly anticipated, which is why we aim to email the finished survey report to you within 5 working days after the date of inspection. We take great pride in delivering customer service excellence in everything we do, and will work as quickly and efficiently as we possibly can to give you the answers you are looking for. If you require a hardcopy of your report, this can also be arranged.
