When you buy a property, mortgage companies require you to have it surveyed. The surveyor will inspect the property for any defects and report back to the mortgage company on the condition of it and make recommendations on any work that may be required to bring the property to a specific standard. This information will also give you an idea about how much money you may need to spend on the property to get it to your own standards, before you commit to buying the property.
The decision that you make on buying the property often rests on how much it might cost to bring it to the standard that you and the mortgage company require. So by spending a few hundred pounds on having the property surveyed, you could save yourself thousands later on.
But when you buy a property that consists of land with a pond or lake in it and that pond or lake is either overgrown or silted up, most people will think along the lines of “We’ll have that cleaned up once we move in” without considering the cost of doing the work.
Overgrown, silted up ponds and lakes are an eyesore and are not good environments for many kinds of fish and other wildlife, however, a clean and clear pond or lake is a beautiful environment for both wildlife and yourself.
The problem is, without having the pond or lake surveyed before you buy the property you could have a nasty shock!
The cost of clearing and/or desilting a large pond and lake can easily run into the thousands, and without hiring a specialist lake surveyor prior to commiting to buying the property, you will have no idea how much it might cost to clear it and bring it back to its former glory.
