Damp & Timber Surveys for Homebuyers

When purchasing or re-mortgaging a property, your bank’s surveyor will usually undertake a homebuyer’s survey on the property. A damp & timber report is included in the survey and is often required as part of the mortgage process.

A homebuyer’s survey will highlight obvious problems with a property such as penetrating or rising damp, and timber maladies including dry rot, wet rot or a beetle infestation. If the surveyor does uncover a problem, they will often recommend a further survey and report is carried out by a specialist remedial company before exchanging contracts.

Broadoak Basements have over 20 years of specialist experience providing quick and effective remedial work to clients based in the North West. We can send out one of our expert technicians to thoroughly inspect the property, provide a full report and identify the best course of action to rectify the problem.

Amateur mistakes are common in diagnostics, resulting in unnecessary and costly work that fails to address the problem.
