Why you should get a survey before you buy

In the UK, property transactions abide by the principle of caveat emptor, translating to – the buyer to detect faults or defects within a building before committing to the purchase.

Should you choose not to have a professional survey, perhaps thinking that a quick glance over the building by someone with an untrained eye will be enough and save money into the bargain, you could be making a big mistake. It is not uncommon for new homeowners to have to pay substantial amounts to rectify major building issues such as damp or roof problems that they had not anticipated. A professional property survey would have identified these and other types of issues, while the cost of remedial work could have been negotiated off the original purchase price, potentially saving you large amounts of money.

Why a mortgage valuation report is not sufficient

Many property buyers believe that a mortgage valuation is all that’s required for their peace of mind. However, this is not the case. A mortgage valuation is designed for the benefit of the lender, to ensure that the property in question exists and is worth the amount being borrowed. A mortgage valuation will not give any information regarding the structure of the building or any legal issues. You will need to commission a surveyor’s report.

Which property survey is best?

There are many different types of property survey, and the right choice will depend on the age, condition and method of construction of the building. Of all the RICS property surveys, the RICS Building Survey is the most thorough investigation and report. If you are thinking of buying an older/period property or a building that will need major renovation works, this is likely to be the best solution. However, if you are considering the purchase of a well looked after modern home or a new-build property, a RICS HomeBuyer Report may suffice.

Able Surveyors has a team of expert surveyors who are happy to discuss the property you are looking to buy. We will recommend the most appropriate survey for your requirements. In the meantime, why not use our comparison table to gain a clearer insight of what each type of survey contains?

I can't say enough good things about Able - not just on the survey quality, but also on the excellent communication. They knew I was in a hurry, and they made sure they gave me the earliest possible slot (about a week after paying). On the day, the surveyor kindly called me and spent half an hour talking through what he found, to put my mind at ease. The next day, I got a summary of the survey. And a couple of days later, the full survey report. It was incredibly detailed, and answered all my questions. It also listed the costs of each repair. A few weeks later, and after the searches came back, I emailed Able with a list of questions. A couple of hours later, the surveyor personally called me and spent an hour going through each point step by step. At no point did I feel rushed, and he spent time reassuring me about each item I was worried about. All in all, dealing with Able was the best experience I have had in the home-buying process, and I would be delighted to use them again if I ever buy another place.

One of the best people you want to use when considering buying a property. Communication was second to none and the report provided was detailed and gave me the assurance I was looking for. Very reasonable price for a first time buyer.

I am happy with service they provided. I was in dark regarding a house that I am going to buy but they stepped in and shed some lights and gave me some insights about the condition of the property. They are resposive nd helpful. I am happy with their service and also I have to mention that their price was reasonable.

My second time using their services, this time with surveyor Jack. As always: professional report, prompt response with follow up call. Honest (refunded unnecessary part of the survey). Got returning customer discount. Absolutely nothing to complain. They are ABLE, as the name says.
