We understand that moving home can be a very stressful experience. Finding a new home, finding somebody to buy your existing home, agreeing a sale price, organising contracts, dealing with agents, meeting deadlines and arranging the removal operation etc. If you’re in a chain then the process can be even more stressful and anxious. It is critical therefore that this process flows as smoothly and as timely as possible.
We carry out a lot of building surveys and a small, but not insignificant number of these inspections result in the sale falling through. A further number of these inspections result in unforeseen delays that put the chain under strain. The reasons for this are often the same, and often the vendor is unaware of the problems until the survey stage of the process – well on in the transaction, when the consequences of the sale falling through are more significant.
