Pre Purchase Survey of House

Cox Consulting recently conducted a survey of a property I was interesting in buying. James inspected the entire property thoroughly, and produced a report which outlined the condition of the interior and exterior of the property. Areas which were in need of repair or attention were highlighted to me, James outlined the work that would be required to remedy any areas of concern, and provided projected costs for this work.  The report on the property was detailed, easy to understand, highlighted potential areas where costs might be incurred if I purchased the property, and helped greatly in my ultimate decision on the property.
