Home Owners

Avoid costly mistakes: maximise value

Your home and property are among your biggest assets. Care is required in ensuring they don’t become a liability. Our job is to ensure you don’t run into unexpected trouble.

There are three main times when our assistance will be of most value:

  • before purchase
  • when making improvements and/or subdividing
  • before selling

Before purchase

It seems unthinkable that a house may not be within its legal boundaries, or that the title may be incorrect or come with certain limitations. However, in our experience this can happen. It can be unpleasant and stressful to discover you may have expensive changes to make once you’ve bought a property.

A Pre-Purchase Survey/Report will make sure you don’t get any nasty surprises with encroachments and are aware of any issues that could have financial implications later on.

Improvements and Subdividing

If you’re engaging an architect, the first thing they will need is a site survey. With any building work it is important to ensure you stay within your boundaries and comply with any council requirements.

Our Advice

Contact Valley Surveying for peace of mind when buying property; to maximise your property’s value when making improvements; and before you eventually sell.
