A property survey should be a priority for you to protect your investment.
A mortgage valuation is not a survey as it belongs to the lender. Instructing your own RICS survey will highlight potential problems for you and your legal advisors, providing confidence in your purchase.
A basic report which includes an inspection of the property, highlighting urgent repairs via a clear traffic light system but excludes: professional advice from a surveyor e.g. ongoing repairs and maintenance, valuation and re-instatement costs.
As per Condition Report but also includes: speak to the surveyor before and after the inspection, professional advice from a surveyor concerning ongoing repairs and maintenance, market valuation and re-instatement costs.
As per Home Buyers Report but also includes comprehensive report on construction and defects and professional advice from a surveyor concerning ongoing repairs and maintenance. Excludes valuation and re-instatement costs.
A specific report on Valuation only. There are many reasons why you might need an independent valuation of a property, such as right to buy, staircasing, help to buy scheme, matrimonial and probate matters.
