How Long Does a Survey Take?

If you are in the process of selling a property, you may already be familiar with home reports and surveying. If a buyer, or prospective buyer, asks you for a report or for survey results, it is now law in Scotland that you provide them with their request. Therefore, there’s never been a better time to start looking for local RICS qualified surveyors. But how long does the process actually take?

Good Surveys Take Time

Ultimately, the length of time it can take for a report to be filed will vary. There are a number of different factors involved, and these will largely revolve around whether or not additional or extensive research is required. Don’t worry! At Home Report Scotland, we will always endeavour to keep you informed on when you can expect your full report to be filed and delivered. That way, you won’t have to keep your buyers waiting too long, and you can move ahead with the sale as soon as possible.

How Long Does a Survey Take to Complete?

When it comes to the length of time a surveyor takes to complete an inspection of a property, this, too, can vary. It depends on the size and age of the property. Our Surveyors are fast, friendly and fair! They will make sure that however long they are at your house, they have all they need to provide a professional Home Report.

Again, don’t worry. We will make sure you are fully advised on what to expect each and every step of the way.

Speedy Surveys and Home Reports

A good survey is one which lays all the facts about a property out for all to see. There is never any doubt left remaining. Therefore, we believe that good surveys will take all the time they need to be completed. There is no way for you to ‘hurry’ surveys along, and even if this is something you wished to do, we would advise against it. For a sale to complete properly, and for you to get full access to details on property value, you are going to need a report that backs you up every step of the way.
