HOW TO BE A SMARTER HOUSE BUYER
One of Yorkshire’s top surveyors shares his tips, trade secrets and opinions in a book for buyers. Outspoken and highly qualified, Jon Charters-Reid is never short of sound advice or strong opinions on his specialised subject: Property.
You might think that surveying is all about older properties, but you’d be wrong. You can find some serious defects lurking in many a new building.
My own firm is finding as many defects in new homes as we do on much older properties. I’ve seen new-build homes without a damp course and with drains attached at the wrong sloping angle. If you buy a new property insist on a professional snagging list.
This will explain what the builder will and won’t put right. Be careful about buying a property with a snag list that protects the builder with too many get-out clauses......
Buying a new home or selling your own existing property can seem daunting – after all, they say it is one of the most stressful things we ever do!
But it can also be one of the most exciting times too!
This FREE guide from Charters-Reid aims to take the stress and hassle out of the process. By following this step-by-step guide with Jon Charters-Reid we hope you’ll find buying or selling a pleasure and very soon be relaxing in the new home of your dreams…
