Buying a residential property, whether as a home or as an investment is an expensive purchase.

Did you know that a mortgage valuation is only commissioned to satisfy your Bank or Building Society of the financial viability of the transaction? It doesn’t provide adequate advice and reassurance to you as a purchaser.

Choosing Countrywide to undertake a survey on your behalf might save you thousands of pounds, but more importantly we can give you peace of mind about your new property. The following information about the different surveys we offer will help you choose the right service for your needs:

RICS HomeBuyer Report

This is our most popular survey and is available on most conventionally constructed properties that are in reasonable condition. It will provide you with the following:

  • Clear ‘traffic light’ ratings about the condition of the different parts of the building, a review of the services connected, garden areas, garage and outbuildings including advice on repairs and on-going maintenance.
  • A summary of risks about the condition of the building, the grounds of the property, and to people.
  • Identification of issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions.
  • Our surveyor’s professional opinion on the ‘Market Value’ and building reinstatement costs for insurance purposes.
  • A summary of the legal issues that need to be investigated before completing your purchase.

RICS Building Survey

This is our flagship survey and is ideal if you are purchasing a larger, older or unusual property, or one that has been altered or extended. It’s also suitable for properties in poor condition or if you are planning to carry out major alterations. It will provide you with the following:

  • A more thorough and extensive inspection and a detailed report covering a wider range of issues.
  • Detailed description of the construction of the property.
  • Description and advice on the visible defects and potential problem areas.
  • An outline of repair options and indication of the consequences if matters are not dealt with.
  • Additional advice on energy efficiency.
  • Identification of legal issues that need to be investigated before completing your purchase.
