Before making a Real Estate purchase in Portugal, conduct a House Survey with Kleya!

As Kleya is a Buyer agent, we created the House Survey in order for our clients to make the best informed decisions before purchasing  a property. In this survey we inspect the state of the property and include a final report with all the positive points, defects found and improvements to be foreseen. This survey is done in extreme detail and will support the client in making a decision and in negotiating the price of the property. 

one of our most recent property survey was conducted for a client who wanted to know if it was a good deal and exactly in which state the property was in terms of usage. The property was located in Lisbon, Kleya inspected the common parts of the building  to see if the maintenance was being done correctly, for example checking if the elevators were inspected in due time, if the building was clean and in good condition. Then we inspected the apartment, checking the general condition first and then in a more detailed manner.

We analysed the quality of the doors and windows, the condition of the electric systems (such as electric windows and air conditioning)  and appliances, quality of the floor, the state and energy efficiency of the heating system for both water and central heating, quality and level security of the entrance door, state of the electrical installation, checked if there were any infiltration problems or any other marks that may indicate humidity problems, acoustic insulation level, solar orientation and thermal insulation level, phonic insulation level, and any kind of problem that may exist or may arise in the near future.

After conducting the inspection, Kleya prepared a report that contained all the relevant topics and everything that was seen as important during the inspection, for example in this case there were several windows that did not work and that would have to be either repaired or replaced. The report also included a market study so as to indicate the property's market value, this helps the client to understand whether they are making a good and fair purchase. Included in the survey is also improvements to be made such as: painting, replacement of doors and windows and the replacement of infrastructures to increase the energy efficiency of the apartment and decrease the energy bill.

A very important aspect of Kleya's Survey, is that it's conducted impartially and without concern of pointing out problems that may prevent the purchase or sale of the property because they are defective and/ or are very costly defects. 

Our client felt more comfortable in making an informed decision, aware no only of the market value but also of the elements that still could be negotiated before moving forward with the Promissory Agreement.
