‘Overlooked’ issues buyers fail to consider at property viewings – ‘will cost to rectify!’

Damp is something that people tend to fear and find very off-putting. Although it is not always visible, you can sometimes pick up on damp due to a musty smell. A trained surveyor/damp specialist will be able to confirm any suspicions potential buyers have about damp in a property.

The property pros urged: “If you find any of these signs, make sure to ask about the cause as it will cost to rectify. It’s sensible to ask whether these will be fixed prior to sale. Once an offer has been accepted, always instruct an independent house survey, so they can conduct more thorough checks.”

5. Confirm land boundaries 

Although estate agents are responsible for making sure all property details are correct, it is always worth asking for more information about the land and boundaries included with the property. Too often there are grey areas in relation to parking spaces and gardens. Make sure you are asking the right questions, and get all responses in writing.

If you are lucky, a boundary agreement may already be in place. This should be in writing and signed by the seller and their neighbours. Working out an exact boundary line is trickier and means obtaining as much information as possible from the title plans, registry documents and any other documentation that may be available.
