  • Valuation report - next step?


    First time buyer here - buying a Victorian terrace .I've just received my copy of the valuation report, and it specifies more detail than I realised it would. The report basically points to excessive moisture in some plaster in some places and dampness to the solid kitchen floor - but considering the age of the property, I expected as much. He goes on to suggest further investiagtion by a specialist

    My dilemma is whether or not I need a further survey - would it offer much more than has been pointed out? Would the next step be a damp specialist to quote on remedying the issues?

    By-the-by - he noted the electrics needed doing and that the roof was reaching the end of its econmic life - again as we expected

    Any advice would be appreciated

    It certainly may be worth considering a specialist report on the damp issues - it may be worth finding out whether this is a minor issue or a symptom of something major.

      agree with Brian here and bearing in mind the other issues you pointed out it may be worth considering getting a full structural survey carried out on the property as there could be other problems yet to be uncovered.
