Found your dream home? Make sure you look at the property with an eagle eye.
Gorvins was featured in the Daily Mail this week, speaking about the deceptive ways in which a vendor may conceal problems with a home that might hinder a sale.
“The problem is that while issues such as subsidence or visible damp may be detected by a chartered surveyor, there are still many things that a canny vendor can do to cover up a problem”
The article goes on to list the more common ‘red flags’ a home buyer should beware of, such as; the smell of wet paint indicating damp or cracks may have been concealed, furniture or picture frames in unnecessary or unconventional places potentially covering damages to floors/walls and windows being left open even on a cold day to hide ventilation issues.
