Property Surveys

Whether you have found a property you like or are still looking, we advise you to get several quotes from local professionals for your survey work.

Both you and your mortgage lender need to know whether the property is actually worth the amount of money you have agreed to spend on it. As well as what is known as the basic valuation, there are two main types of survey: the Home Buyers Report and the Building Survey. All lenders require a basic valuation, but it is strongly advised that you also have an independent and more detailed survey conducted, as the basic valuation will only show up any obvious problems that you will probably have noticed yourself.
