The importance of getting a home survey

Home buyers are often confused about their lender’s valuation. Many still believe their valuation is a survey and is being done for their benefit.

Increasingly, lenders take a risk-based approach and might well use an automated valuation model which can result in nobody physically visiting the property.

To demonstrate the importance of getting a survey, we’ve shared a short film produced by the RICS explaining how an RICS Home Survey from an RICS qualified professional will ensure you know as much about the condition of the property before you commit to buying.

We carry out two types of surveys:

  • Full Building Survey
  • Basic Building Survey
