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