I’ve only gone and bloody done it (after about 6 years of reading the Pin). So would appreciate if anyone has a personal recommendation of a surveyor.
See thread below for info on surveyors and solicitors
get a structural engineer or a qualified architect, or preferably both if you are spending a significant sum.
I used Kevin Woods. I was happy with him.
Thanks - will have a look at the surveyors mentioned.
Very calm and happy with the decision now. While I’m 100% sure we’ll have overpaid compared to next year and the year after, we’ve got the perfect house in the perfect location and I was happy to pay a bit extra to secure that. And to never have to look at myhome ever again.
Congratulations. I agree it is worth paying a bit extra to get the home you want. If nothing else think opf the wages you would have to pay yourself to continue trawling websites and viewing houses.
You will… just to see… just a quick look…
Thanks! Not to mention the insane rent we were paying just to live in a decent family home while our deposit sat in the bank.
No way. That site is dead to me now. Now the PPR - I’m sure I will have a little peek at that now and again.
I still look everyday - sadly
rule of thumb for when to use either, rather than a surveyor?
When you are planning on putting in a non obvious extension.
