The basic mortgage valuation is only to establish if the property is acceptable for a lender within the lenders specific criteria. It does not necessarily comment regarding defects which may be present.
A survey will report upon the general overall condition of the property thus warning of potential maintenance and repair costs.
The cost of your survey can often be recovered through re-negoatiation of the purchase price using the survey report.
We provide a copy of the report to all clients' solicitors upon request.
Identified defects may require consideration immediate or future expenditure or in the extreme make the property un-mortgageable. Suddenly a modest investment in a survey report becomes money well spent in protecting your biggest asset. On average we estimate that our property survey reports save clients around £10,000 on the purchase price.
