It’s safe to say 2016 wasn’t brilliant for the property market. Rising prices was enough to put anyone off even thinking about trying to get on the property ladder. That’s why Trafford Chartered Surveyors believe the Government’s Help To Buy scheme is the perfect solution. It is set up in the hope of getting more people owning their own homes in 2017.
Of course, what you will need before you purchase is a trustworthy surveyor; someone who can tell you whether the house you’ve found really is your dream home, or is the stuff of nightmares.
How a Chartered Surveyor can help
You may think a chartered surveyor is a person who simply looks for hidden defects in buildings. This is only partly true as a minority of chartered surveyors do this. Consider this: who manages large country estates on behalf of rich families? Who estimates and controls the costs on building projects such as the Channel Tunnel? Chartered Surveyors. But again, only a minority will do these tasks at any one time. Eventually, you come to realise that a chartered surveyor does not exist as a job; it is a profession. The title itself describes a general set of skills with a qualification.
Quantity surveyors manage and plan all costs associated with all types of construction projects, from onset through to completion. They work on both new builds and refurbishment projects. A quantity surveyor’s role has changed significantly in recent years, creating a more strategic job.
