Why does the surveyor need to be local

It is important to get a surveyor to attend the property who is local to your area.

A local surveyor will have extensive local knowledge of the area and will know if there are any issues that occur on properties locally. A local surveyor will also be aware of the market conditions in the area and it is more than likely that they have surveyed properties of a similar condition before.

It is also more efficient to work with a surveyor who is local to Consett or who is used to completing surveys in Durham as driving for several hours to complete a survey can delay the report turnaround.
