SAMUELS ESTATE AGENTS, 38 LONGBROOK STREET, EXETER, EX4 6AE
TELEPHONE :01392 494999
The information given in these particulars is intended to help you decide whether you wish to view this property and to avoid wasting your time in viewing unsuitable properties. We have tried to make sure that these particulars are accurate, but to a large extent we have to rely on what the seller tells us about the property. We do not check every single piece of information ourselves as the cost of doing so would be prohibitive and we do not wish to unnecessarily add to the cost of moving house.
Once you find the property you want to buy, you will need to carry out more investigations into the property than it is practical or reasonable for an estate agent to do when preparing sales particulars. For example, we have not carried out any kind of survey of the property to look for structural defects and would advise any homebuyer to obtain a surveyor’s report before exchanging contracts. If you do not have your own surveyor, we would be pleased to recommend one. We have not checked whether any equipment in the property (such as central heating) is in working order and would advise homebuyers to check this.
You should also instruct a solicitor to investigate all legal matters relating to the property (e.g. title, planning permission, etc.) as these are specialist matters in which estate agents are not qualified. Your solicitor will also agree with the seller what items (e.g. carpets, curtains, etc.) will be included in the sale.
Please be aware that all measurements within these particulars are recorded with a sonic tape, and whilst every effort has been taken to ensure their accuracy potential purchasers are recommended to satisfy themselves before entering a contract to purchase.
AGENTS NOTE MONEY LAUNDERING POLICY
Samuels Estate Agents are committed to ensuring that it has adequate controls to counter money laundering activities and terrorist financing activities, in line with the Money Laundering Regulations 2007. Any prospective purchaser will be required to show proof of funds and identification. We ask for your cooperation on this matter in order that there will be no delay in the transaction.
