    Pre Purchase Damp Survey

    Are you buying a property? Have you considered a pre-purchase damp survey?

    Many new homeowners call us when they move the furniture and find damp issues.

    Here at South East Timber & Damp Limited, we recognise that when you are buying a property you need to be made aware of any issues in regard to damp and/or timber, along with the severity and costs to resolve. 

    We can provide you with a COMPREHENSIVE survey from just £234.00 inclusive of VAT.

    However, new homeowners often call us requiring an urgent assessment of damp and timber issues they have discovered in their new homes.

    At the point of purchase, they chose not to get a damp and timber survey done. Upon moving into the property there are some signs of issues and costly remedies have not been budgeted for.

    Put your mind at rest

    We can offer you a “Pre-Purchase Damp Survey” to come in and complete a full inspection of the property you are looking at buying for any timber and/or defects.

    You will receive a full report of any issues and a cost to rectify if required. It is then your choice whether to proceed or not.

    Are you Selling a Property?

    Many house sales fail due to late findings of damp or timber issues in a property.

    We get frequent calls from desperate vendors looking for an urgent assessment of damp and timber issues. They tell us that a building survey has identified damp issues, and the buyer is considering pulling out of the sale due to the cost of rectifying.

    Pre-Sale Damp Survey

    We can offer you a “Pre-Sale Damp Survey” to come in and carry out a full inspection of your property for any timber and or damp defects.

    You will receive a full report of any issues along with a cost to rectify. It is then your choice whether to get the work done or keep this document to show prospective buyers of any issues. There may well be none; in this case, we give you a clean bill of health.
