26 Dec Survey Fees – do you get what you pay for?
With most things in life you tend to get what you pay for. This is as true for home Surveys as it is for second hand cars. Pay a little more than the minimum and you will probably get a slightly better product or service.
Whilst most Surveyors should have a good level of technical knowledge those who quote the lowest fees will probably be inspecting two or three properties each day. Certainly this is the norm for those Surveyors who are also working for your mortgage lender.
At Edwin Lake we have made a decision to spend more time at each property, more time producing each Survey Report and more time talking to our clients if needed. Together with the costs associated with RICS Regulation we will probably not provide the cheapest Survey quote but we shall do our best to meet your expectations and provide really good value for money.
