Paul Shearman, mortgage, protection and general insurance proposition director of Openwork, said: “Home buyers often remain unaware of potential problems with their property until after completion, which in the case of structural defects can cost thousands of pounds to rectify.

“Our survey proposition will help our advisers overcome this problem by giving them greater control over the buying process while ensuring their clients have the best possible information when making what is one of the biggest financial decisions of their lifetime.”
