Why a survey?
The valuation is NOT a survey
Surveys are for your benefit, whereas valuations are for lenders to decide whether a property is safe to lend on – Valuation aren’t a substitute. Mortgage offers are made without any inspection of the property.
Lower the purchase price
Use the survey to renegotiate the price of the property with the seller if you find problems.
Avoid paying on average £5,750 in unexpected repair bills due to not getting a proper survey done. A RICS report shows 17% of new owners end up paying more than £12,000 to make their homes habitable.
Get peace of mind
Learn the true condition of the property before buying. A survey will highlight current and potential problems.
Compare Survey Types
RICS Homebuyer report
- Level 2 RICS survey
- Cost effective
- Easy to read traffic light scoring system
- Highlights problems that could impact the value of the property
- Advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance
- Gives optional valuation
Most likely to be recommended. This is an extensive and detailed inspection to help you better judge the cost of future maintenance, repair and restoration works. This is most suitable for conventional properties in a reasonable to good condition built in the last 150 years with traditional materials with no obvious defects.
RICS Building Survey
Most In Depth
- Level 3 RICS Survey
- Most detailed inspection available
- Better for older properties
- Will uncover hidden structural defects
- Ideal if you plan significant building works
- For properties with major previous building works
Most expensive and detailed survey and is essential for larger, older or unusual properties, as well as if you’re planning renovation works. Unlike with the other survey types, the surveyor will get into the attic and look between floors (if possible), as well as above ceilings to find any hidden issues.
