2020 has proven to be an exceptionally busy year for our survey and valuation department.
The stamp duty holiday has fuelled a rush in property transactions, which have required professional survey and valuation advice prior to exchange and completion. The current buoyant conditions have creating a rising market and sales have regularly been agreed at premium levels. With the future of the housing market less certain and property prices widely expected to either level out or dip in 2021 as a result of the economic effect of the coronavirus, re-introduction of stamp duty land tax and the impact of BREXIT; it has perhaps never been more important to ensure that any property being purchased is of sound construction, without significant hidden repair costs and that the agreed sale price is reasonable.
