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 a very short report based on a brief inspection and could be a mere drive by inspection or even an automated remote valuation with no inspection at all!

Residential Reports

We are pleased to be able to offer a wide selection of residential survey reports to suit every need and with reports starting from as little as £350 +VAT, they are excellent value too. Browse our selection below to find the right report for you.

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 20 to 30 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.

RICS Homebuyer Survey
The RICS 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 2 hours, uses Condition Ratings to access the overall condition and provides both a valuation and buildings insurance calculation.

Principal Elements Report
A Principal Elements report is similar in detail to a building survey but is limited to the main structural elements of the property, which does not include the fittings or services and does not include a valuation.
