Why do I need my own survey?

With such a big investment involved, it’s crucial to find out if there might be any unpleasant or costly surprises after you move in to your new home, and if so, what you can do about them. Having a professional Survey and Valuation carried out is a way to minimize your risk before committing yourself legally to buying a property. In some cases the surveyors report may enable you to renegotiate the price.

What if I already have a Mortgage Valuation Report?

It is still advisable to arrange a Survey, as the Mortgage Valuation Report is prepared for the Lender, not for you, the Borrower. You can’t rely upon it to answer the questions which concern your personal interests.

What choice of surveys do I have?

There are two types of surveys which are specifically designed to help home buyers: a Building Survey (formerly called a structural survey) or The Home Buyer Survey and Valuation.

Building Survey

A Building Survey is suitable for all residential properties and provides a full picture of their construction and condition. Please download our PDF for a full overview.
