Unsure if you need a survey?

Anyone buying a house should certainly consider getting a survey.

Some mortgages are offered without a surveyor inspecting a property, with the mortgage decision being determined by an automated or desktop method.

A mortgage lender’s valuation report is purely for the lender and not the customer, it is not a survey. Many lenders no longer offer surveys for their customers.

A survey can sometimes seem like an additional, unnecessary expense, but it is better for customers to know about the problems upfront rather than uncover expensive surprises after they've moved in.

"Richard delivered an excellent service. He sent the home valuation report ahead of estimated time. He called me before visiting the property to check if there was anything we would like him to look at. And when the report was back, he quickly answered all the questions we had. Thanks to his knowledge, my next steps are now clear."
