Property Valuation Sussex

A property valuation report can provide you with an accurate market valuation of any kind of building or premises. This is an important part of buying property, firstly because it provides you with the peace of mind on your investment, but also to offer the security for a mortgage company to grant a loan.

The advantage of having a firm of chartered surveyors carry out your report is that you will receive a completely impartial written report that offers commentary on the major issues that affect the value. We also include an opinion on the market value. It can additionally lead to more detailed surveys if any serious defects are uncovered.

Building Reinstatement Valuations Sussex

Many buildings – both residential and commercial – have insurance, but it’s not always the case that they are insured correctly. This can be a big problem if you do come to make an insurance claim. If the building is under-insured this could cause problems with the settlement of the claim, and leave the claimant with a financial shortfall that they would have to cover. Alternatively, if the building is over-insured it could mean you are paying too much on your insurance premiums.

During a building reinstatement valuation we will assess the building reinstatement costs for insurance purposes. If you need an up-to-date building reinstatement valuation, the team at Southdown Surveyors would be happy to help. We have extensive experience carrying out these valuations and can provide you with all of the information that you need.

My wife and I used Southdown Surveyors during a recent potential house purchase. We had agreed a price on an older, character property and felt it best to fully assess the area and the property. We are both mightily pleased we engaged Southdown’s help as they flagged up some very serious, unseen defects in the property. As inexperienced first time buyers we would have been left having bought a seriously defective property with largely no sell on value and a huge bill simply to make habitable.

Southdown Surveyors were extremely professional, diligent and very helpful. They provide a thoroughly detailed breakdown of the property they survey, from little things like nearby trees that might invalidate house insurance to highly detailed information on the structure and wellbeing of the property.

I think in some cases there might be a tendency on the house buyer’s end to avoid engaging a full survey but with what we have experienced I would strongly advise anyone looking to buy a property to engage a thorough, proper survey. The outlay in doing so is relatively minimal and when you are making such a large financial, and life investment, having professionals on your side, and ones who will help you as Southdown Surveyors did for us, is absolutely invaluable.
