A high quality RICS approved report, carried out by one of our RICS accredited local surveyors. The RICS Homebuyer (Survey & Valuation) is an informative, reliable and cost effective report, providing clear and concise advice regarding any serious problems or specific risks a property may have. The Report is suitable for simple, traditional properties that appear in reasonable condition and includes an opinion of market value. It identifies what the Surveyor considers to be the most important issues and applies a condition rating to the defects identified.

 

People buying standard types of houses or flats often feel that the cost of a report is just another expense on top of all the others. The Homebuyer (Survey & Valuation) seeks to address this issue by providing buyers with useful information at a reasonable cost. The lender's valuation is not a report on condition and is prepared for the benefit of the lender. It is unwise to rely on a mortgage valuation and we always advise buyers to obtain their own independent advice as it's often beneficial in the long run.
