A building survey can prevent a buyer from being burdened with the troubles of the seller. An expert valuation removes uncertainty.
Comparing the actual property to the information and promises provided by the estate agents, owners and developers, is one of the services of Survey Spain Network of Surveyors and Valuers. The lawyer will ensure that all the paperwork is correct, but there will still be problems if the property is not described accurately or has major defects. Works can have been carried out that don’t show in the paperwork and maybe do not have the appropriate licenses, etc. Equally, there may be structural or other building problems, which do not become apparent until after you have purchased. These matters can be found by inspecting and measuring during a professional survey of the property by Survey Spain. Also, it is vitally important that you discover if there are squatters or a tenant within the buildings, no matter how informal a tenancy, as you may not be able to get them out for up to 5 years. Survey Spain, when carrying out their Building Surveys and Property Valuations, check on these matters, as appropriate to the locality in which the property is located.
Our current market valuations are fully researched so that a buyer knows how the value of the property being considered compares with the alternatives available.
