Concerns over agents' obligation to reveal property...

There have been concerns raised over new trading standards...

Surely, the best way that agents can ensure they are meeting their obligations in respect of informing prospective purchasers about potential defects in the property is to recommend that they obtain a good quality and detailed survey prior to making any buying decision. Making this recommendation to clients at an early stage would go a long way to demonstrating that they are complying with the guidance. I understand why agents have traditionally been reluctant to encourage buyers to obtain a survey, but the world is changing now. Certainly, speaking for the members of the RPSA, we like to approach our surveys in a positive way and see them as helping the selling and buying process, rather than hindering it. By conducting a thorough and detailed inspection the surveyor can, in most cases, explain the background and the nature of any defects in a calm and jargon free way, and avoid constant references to further investigations. Good quality reports, including lots of photos and clear, concise information, help validate a buying decision and ensure that agents are assisting buyers in making informed choices.
