Know Everything about the Property You Are Buying: Hire Kennedy Setouts & Surveys for a House Buyers Survey in Melbourne

Imagine this scenario: you spend months looking for the perfect dream home for yourself and your family, eventually finding a home that is a perfect fit. Because you are afraid of the house being snatched off the market by someone else, you make an offer quickly. Your offer is accepted, you close on the house, and you celebrate. Happily ever after, right? Not quite yet.

Next, you decide that you want to make some improvements in and around your house. Perhaps you want some outdoor living space and are thinking about adding a deck or patio. Maybe you just need a shed to store your lawn mower and some other gardening tools. Or maybe you just want a fenced in yard where your kids and your dog can run around. It’s only after you start planning your outdoor improvements that you realise your house is surrounded by drainage easements, leaving little to no space for the things you want to build.

Some variation of this story has been experienced by countless home buyers over the years. The issue is hugely frustrating because it feels as if you should be allowed to do whatever you want with your land. The worst part is that the whole situation could have easily been prevented with a timely house buyers survey from a reliable Melbourne property surveying company.

Avoid Confusion with Your Property: Conduct a Home Buyers Survey in Melbourne

At Kennedy Setouts & Surveys, be offer house buyer surveys in Melbourne. These surveys—also known as title re-establishment surveys—will map out the exact boundaries of the property you are thinking of buying. They will also include critical need-to-know details about easements and covenants. If the local government or some other entity has restricted the land that you are allowed to use on a piece of property, you need that information before you purchase the property.

A title re-establishment survey will give you that information. It will help you determine whether you will be able to build fences, sheds, decks, additions or any other new structures on a residential parcel of land before you buy it. If you cannot improve the property due to easements and other impediments, you may choose to reconsider purchasing the house and the property on which it sits. In other words, a house survey in Melbourne can be a vital due diligence step in the buying process.

A home buyers survey in Melbourne can also tell you if the seller is misrepresenting the boundaries of their property. Over time, it’s easy for boundary lines to become muddied. Stakes and other property markers get knocked down or moved, and before long, the property owners on both sides of the line think they own more of the property than they do. A title re-establishment survey can restore clarity by finding the exact boundary lines that apply to a particular parcel of land.
