SHOULD I HAVE A SURVEY OR VALUATION DONE?

 

You are about to make one of the most important financial decisions of your life. By obtaining a survey you can ensure you are in the know about your property and there are no surprises after you move in.

 

A survey might appear as an additional unnecessary cost, but it is better to be aware of any matters that might need attention now, rather than discover problems that are time-consuming and expensive to resolve after you move in.  It will also give you comfort that the price agreed represents market value.

I am having a mortgage – does my lender do a survey/valuation?

No. All the lender needs is a valuation of the property, so they are comfortable that they are not lending you more than the property is worth. Although you may be paying for it, this valuation is carried out for the benefit of the lender only. It is not a detailed inspection, and it will not necessarily alert you to faults or potential issues with the condition of the property unless it affects the mortgage ability.

 

It is often possible to request a detailed survey to be carried out at the same time as the mortgage valuation. Find your local office and speak to one of our Mortgage Consultants, or to speak directly to CICEK HOMES Survey & Valuation
