But why get a survey?

To ensure it's a dream home and not your worst nightmare.

Your home is probably your most expensive purchase - you need to know its true condition before committing to buy.


Use the survey to negotiate the house price.

Home buyers who gamble by not getting a survey are regularly faced with £0,000s worth of unexpected repairs once into their new home.

Now is the time to find any problems and use them in negotiation on the house price.

A mortgage valuation is NOT a survey.

A mortgage valuation is just for the benefit of the lender (tells them whether or not the property is reasonable security for your loan). 

Where as a RICS Survey benefits the buyer and will highlight potential problems.
