There are also additional reports we can help with:
Watsons can provide a valuation of your property which may be needed for a variety of reasons, including secured lending purposes, sale, probate, litigation, property development or taxation. With our property expertise and local knowledge, you can be sure that the valuation you receive is a true reflection of the current market.
Both a valuation of your purchase and a Rebuilding Cost Assessment for insurance purposes are normally, but may not be, included in RICS HomeBuyer Reports. We also provide property valuations for mortgages and any other purposes.
Our valuation survey incorporates the following factors:
- Shared ownership.
- Social housing.
- Rent review.
New Build Snagging
If you’re buying a brand-new property, we can assist with a snagging, or Schedule of Outstanding Work report, once the sale has been completed
“It is your housebuilder’s responsibility to check and fix any cosmetic defects before you complete on the sale, but it is unlikely they are going to pick up on everything.”
A snag is a small defect or problem that remains in your property after the building work has been completed. It is typically something that is damaged or broken; not fitted properly or looks unfinished – think of a scratch on a window or a missing hinge on a door.
Specific Defect Analysis
Our Specific Defect Analysis focuses solely on major issues. It is particularly intended to investigate possible causes for a particular issue, as well as implications and recommendations as to remedial work. The Specific Defect Analysis will be a relatively brief document which confirms the surveyor’s findings and outlines the remedial work(s) that will be required. Whilst this report is particularly useful for establishing the extent of a specific issue without having to undertake a full Building Survey, it cannot be seen as a substitute and will not cover any defects outside the scope of the client’s instructions.
Get the right advice…
We cannot emphasise enough the importance of having a survey carried out. While this may add to costs, it really is an investment for the future, and can avoid the need for significant unexpected expenditure at a later date. At Watsons we offer a personal service tailored to the individual needs of our clients, and have the expertise you need to be confident that you’re receiving the right and best advice. The recent expansion of our surveying services into Sheffield, Derby and surrounding areas in the North East, means we can bring high-quality surveying to more customers than ever before along the East Coast.
