Homebuyers are often asked by their potential mortgage lender for a tree survey. Surveyors are experts in their own field and are not keen to comment on trees and an assessment by a qualified Arboriculturalist may be requested if they believe that trees could be compromising the integrity of a building.
As Arboriculturalists, we will visit the property being considered for a mortgage, consider the behaviour of the trees which can be seen on and off site and consider other factors relating to the potential for the trees to cause harm to the property.
Purchasing a house is a particularly stressful time for a buyer. We guarantee to visit the site and provide a mortgage report within 5 days of the instruction date. As part of our service, we would be more than happy to meet the prospective purchaser on site to discuss any potential tree maintenance or safety issues that may concern them. We will always be honest with our clients, giving them our best possible advice.
