We always recommend that you buy a property only after an independent property condition survey over and above any basic valuation survey required by a mortgage lender.

Having direct access to your surveyor for guidance in relation to any defects and potential remedial costs; and having the ability to guide your surveyor to concentrate on a particular area of interest is invaluable.

Furthermore, you can control the timings in relation to receipt of the completed report.

We have worked closely with surveyors over the last ten years and would be delighted to recommend a tried and tested firm.
