What to do if your house has a bad survey?
Posted on 20th June 2022
If you're buying or selling a house, it's likely that you'll have to get a property survey done at some point.
This is to check that the property is in good condition, and to flag up any potential problems with the property.
If your house has a bad survey, don't panic!
There are steps that you can take to fix the problems.
In this blog post, we'll discuss what to do if your house has a bad survey.
The first thing that you need to do is identify the problem. Is there something wrong with the property itself, or is it just a case of poor maintenance? If it's the latter, then it's likely that the problems can be easily fixed. However, if there are structural issues with the property, then you'll need to get professional help to fix the problems.
Some things that can be flagged up in a survey are:
- Cracks in the walls
- Structural problems
- Poor maintenance
Once you've identified the problem, you need to make a plan of action. If the problem is minor, then you may be able to fix it yourself.
However, if the problem is more serious, then you'll need to get professional help. Make sure that you get quotes from different companies before you decide who to hire.
Once you've made a plan of action, it's time to get to work! If you're fixing the problem yourself, make sure that you do a good job and that you follow the instructions carefully. If you're hiring someone to fix the problem, make sure that they are qualified and that they have a good reputation.
Once the problem has been fixed, it's time to get your house re-surveyed. This will show potential buyers that the problem has been fixed, and it will give you peace of mind knowing that your house is in good condition.
