Buyer Beware applies to YOU and means the property is sold “as is” or subject to all defects. We sometimes refer to this as caveat emptor.
It is vital that YOU carry out searches, inspections, and survey to ensure that you are aware of any defects.
From completion you will take the property subject to the same.
The Seller should not misrepresent but they are NOT required to check things for you and only have to answer what you ask.
If you don’t ask and check things (searches, survey & inspection) then on your head be it.
Conveyancers do NOT attend the property or concern themselves with its physical condition. You have a survey for that very purpose.
Your Conveyancer is looking at legal issues only.
We NEED you to tell us about any alterations and you MUST have a survey. Do NOT rely on a lender valuation.
