We are highly skilled in undertaking surveys and valuations on all kinds of residential property, from the smallest studio flat to the largest mansion. Every purchaser needs to know the true condition of the property they are intending to purchase and know its true value.
A survey should always be undertaken and the results considered before you enter into any kind of contractual agreement. This way, if the survey highlights defects or problems with the property, you are in a position to re-negotiate the asking price or if the property gets a clean bill of health you know your proposed investment is safe.
If you are having a mortgage, the lender will send a valuer to value the property. This is not a condition survey and you cannot rely on this quick inspection to purchase the property. This is simply for the lenders’ purposes to ensure they are not lending more than the property is worth.
You can then take into consideration any repairs which may have to be made before you are bound to the sale. In fact, your lender may insist on repairs being completed before release of full mortgage funds.

- RICS Condition Report.
- RICS Homebuyers Report and Valuation.
