    A cautionary tale about cheap surveys

    We recently had to clear up on behalf of a client who had opted for a survey from one of our cheaper surveyor allies. 

    The surveyor had not bothered to move the remains of a bed in an otherwise empty house to get in to the attic. It took us about 30 seconds.

    The roof had a number of snapped rafters as an original slate surface had been replaced with heavier concrete tiles. Expensive

    The surveyors had not opened the drain cover as it was supposed to be corroded in.  Again it took us about 30 seconds.

    The drain was of course blocked due to a problem with the channel.

    The surveyor offered some advice about dampness. The suggestion was completely unnecessary and put everybody in the house at risk of burning to death as the suggestions severely compromised the fire protection of the property. In this case particular important, as it was three stories plus cellar and likely to be in multiple occupation.

    We were able to advise the client against that course of action saving potential prosecution/ closure by the Environmental Health Officer.

    By doing only half a job and not stopping to think about the content of the report they were naturally able to be much quicker and cheaper.

    Not so cheap in the long run!
