Our advisers may suggest you book a survey based on the condition of the property itself, not the cost of the survey. We think money spent on a decent survey can possibly save you a fortune in the future.

What is a Building Survey

This is the most comprehensive survey and is suitable for all residential properties. It’s very extensive and in some circumstances worth the extra money but it does not usually include a valuation. Although this survey can’t look under floorboards or behind walls it should include the surveyor’s opinion on the potential for hidden defects in this area.

Homebuyers Report

This will help you find out if there are any structural problems, such as subsidence or damp, as well as any other unwelcome hidden issues inside and outside. The Home-Buyer Report doesn’t look beyond the floorboards or behind the walls. Some home-buyers’ reports include a property valuation too. Be sure to confirm this is included before hand to avoid additional costs.

About Home Surveys & why you need one


If you’re a seller

If you’re a seller, it may be worthwhile to have a survey done yourself. If there are any problems with your house, this will give you a chance to fix them; or if your property gets the all clear, the report can be used to show buyers what great condition your property is in.
