Mortgage Valuation

This is not a survey but a Valuation Report. It gives advice regarding the Market Value, taking into account many factors likely to materially affect value. This is not a comprehensive report and is usually carried out for the Lender. As such, we would advise most clients should commission their own, more detailed, survey.

RICS Homebuyer Survey and Valuation

A popular and concise report that enables you to make an informed judgement as to whether to proceed with the purchase and whether the proposed purchase price is fair and reasonable.

Pre Purchase Survey and Valuation

Delivered to hundreds of clients, and covering an inspection to the same level as The Homebuyer Survey and Valuation but a more comprehensive report delivered in an easy to read style. It gives a general overview of the property, a clear recommendation as to whether the client should proceed and a Market Valuation of the property. You will be given advice over such matters and actions requiring further investigation or execution prior to exchange of contracts as well as defects requiring urgent action – a useful aid to negotiations. The condition of the property is reported in detail together with any matters that the Clients solicitors should investigate further or action prior to purchase. An insurance rebuilding cost is also provided.

Drone Inspections

Drone inspections of upper areas not visible from ground level available, subject to local weather conditions.

Schedule of Condition/Dilapidations

Full written and photographic schedules to record the condition of commercial property at either commencement or termination of lease. The negotiation and settlement of Dilapidations Claims is another service that is provided.

David. Many thanks for the highly detailed report on the cottage. We were impressed by its range and depth. Sadly we will not be proceeding but will no doubt require such an efficient survey again. October 2020

David – many thanks for this report. I have read through the report quickly and, as you suggested, passed a copy to my solicitor. Thanks also for the dimensions at the rear: very helpful! October 2020
