So that you can be fully informed of the condition of the property before you purchase, our members undertake home surveys. A buyer would be unwise to rely only on the lender’s mortgage valuation.
We recommend that depending on the circumstance and type of property any prospective purchaser should commission a Level Two survey such as a Home-Buyer Report or Home Condition Survey, or a Level Three survey such as a Building Survey.
Our surveys can empower you as a purchaser by providing you with greater knowledge about your perspective property.
There may be some expensive repairs to carry out, identified in a survey that a mortgage valuation wouldn’t necessarily pick up.
