What is a survey?
A survey is a report about the property's overall condition. This report can tell you if there are problems with the property’s structure, repairs or alterations that need to be made or any other risks associated with the property.
Do I need a survey?
Surveys are optional; but they can help avoid expensive and unwanted surprises. Buying a home is one of the biggest purchases you will ever make, so why take the risk?
A survey will make you aware of any matters that might need attention now, rather than discover problems that are time consuming and expensive to resolve after you move in. It will also give you comfort that the price agreed represents market value.
There are different types of surveys we can help you with:
- Property valuations
- Condition reports
- Homebuyer reports
- Building surveys
- Tax valuations
- Matrimonial valuations
- Probate valuations
Our Surveying Service is run in partnership with a major national firm of Chartered Surveyors and will provide you with vital information regarding the condition of the property and its value.
If you are applying for a mortgage, your Mortgage Consultant can usually organise a survey to be carried out alongside the mortgage valuation. Please speak to our dedicated Mortgage Consultant or call our Survey & Valuation team directly on 01525 218619.
