Why do I need a property survey?

A home is the most expensive purchase most people ever make, therefore it is essential to ensure you know its true condition and obtain independent advice before you proceed with your purchase.

Many are  under the misconception that a mortgage valuation is a survey, when in fact it is only at best a very short report based on a brief inspection these days is often no more than a mere drive by inspection or even an automated remote valuation with no inspection at all!

RICS Level 2 Homebuyer Survey
The RICS Level 2 Homebuyer Survey is the most popular type of report and is a general assessment of the overall condition of a property, commenting on items that affect value but not minor repairs. It is based on an inspection of approximately 1.5 to 3 hours, uses Condition Ratings to access the overall condition and can provide both a valuation and buildings insurance calculation at additional cost.

RICS Level 1 Valuation Report
A short report providing an independent and justified valuation with limited comment on quality and condition. Based on a limited inspection of approximately 30 to 45 minutes, plus subsequent research prior to preparation of the report.

Property Condition Report
A brief report on the overall condition of a property in as far as it affects value, with no advice on repairs or other associated matters. Based on a short inspection of approximately an hour. No valuation or buildings insurance calculation is provided.

Expert Witness Report
A detailed, in-depth unbiased analytical report on a variety of matters aimed at providing formal dispute resolution between two parties undertaken upon a jointly appointed single expert witness basis.
