Benefits of having a Property Inspection
By having the home inspected from top to bottom allows you to place the correct value on the property you are bonding, but more importantly allows you to assess the health of the house.
This will enable you to also evaluate the home owner insurance for the house without paying for unnecessary claims which may be due to no maintenance on the property ie. roof leaks, damp, plumbing issues which were not seen at time of purchase by the home owner.
Not only does this evaluation of the property protect the banks interest in the house but also protects the new home owner from any unforeseen circumstances before the purchase of the property as hefty repair bills may cause the new owner unnecessary financial strain at the beginning of the purchase of there house amongst other initial expenses that have already been outlaid.

LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION: ANCHOR PROPERTY GROUP
I refer to the above and confirm that I recently required the services of an expert in the building industry.
I was in the process to defend a claim against a client of mine who is a Builder and was sued for a great amount of damages.
Since I am not an expert and we could not use our own client for the purpose of expert evidence, I approached ANCHOR PROPERTY GROUP, and more particularly Mr. Alun Ferreira for an expert opinion and report and also to be a witness in the matter.
I wish to state unconditionally that Mr. Ferreira’s report, and his presence in the court case definitely contributed to the fact that we eventually reached a very good settlement which I believe was in favor of my Client saving him approximately R160 000.00.
The service was professional and reports were timeous, and therefore they are highly recommended. I specifically appreciated that he was honest at all times, and even now and again did not hesitate to point out the shortcomings in our case.
I trust the reader will be encouraged to make use of the services of ANCHOR PROPERTY GROUP as building experts and for any building projects.
