Longer waits for sur­veys

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

BUY­ERS and sell­ers will con­tinue to ex­pe­ri­ence lengthy waits for val­u­a­tions, sur­veys and con­veyanc­ing, ac­cord­ing to the Con­veyanc­ing Al­liance Group.

The com­pany says an in­creas­ing num­ber of po­ten­tial trans­ac­tions are be­ing hin­dered by the delays as mar­ket ac­tiv­ity in­creases.

John Philips, sales di­rec­tor at Con­veyanc­ing Al­liance, says: “The good news is that most agents, par­tic­u­larly in the South-East but also across the coun­try, are likely to have seen an in­crease in busi­ness ac­tiv­ity par­tic­u­larly since April and May.

“The bad news is that this in­crease is test­ing the re­sources of all those in­volved in the prop­erty process, es­pe­cially around the de­liv­ery of sur­veys and val­u­a­tions, and in the con­veyanc­ing mar­ket.”
