It is vital that you get professional advice when purchasing a property. Whilst your lender will require a mortgage valuation, this is for their benefit only and is to protect their own interest. It is becoming increasingly common for lenders to obtain a drive by or Automated Valuation which means that the subject property is not even inspected internally. We would always recommend a survey be carried out when buying residential property.

A thorough survey will give you the information you need to proceed with confidence, and will highlight any defects that you may not have been aware of. We offer the full range of Surveys giving you confidence that the property you wish to purchase has been professionally inspected by a Building Surveyor.

• Condition Report

• Homebuyers Survey, With or Without Valuation

• Building Survey

The Building Survey is the most detailed and thorough of the three surveys. We would recommend a Building Survey for older properties (over 120 years old), properties in significant disrepair and properties with many alterations or signs of defects.
