What Survey should I get?

There are in reality four types of surveys commonly carried out on residential properties.


The first is a Valuation. This is a survey which gives advice on the value of the property. We will advise in broad terms, on any major defects that are apparent that have a significant effect on value. This type of survey will only report in a very summary manner (ie. on roofs, walls, floors, structural stability and dampness) and will not provide any detail. If you require advice on the condition of the property you are buying this is not a suitable form of survey to rely upon.


The second type of survey is a Condition Report. This type of report is similar to the HomeBuyers Report but does not provide the additional maintenance guidance or valuation contained in the HomeBuyers Report. It is intended to be more economic than the HomeBuyers Report and by enabling the surveyor to report in a set format reducing the time required to produce a report, whilst still giving you a detailed report on the condition of the property.


The third type of survey is a HomeBuyers’ Report. This is by far the most popular type of report commissioned by buyers. It is intended to be more economic to buy than a full survey (also known as a Building or Structural Survey) by enabling the surveyor to report in a set format reducing the time required to produce a report, whilst still giving you an in depth assessment of the property in question.

In our experience the cost of a HomeBuyers’s Report is normally some 2/3rds the cost of a full survey and should generally provide all the essential information you require. The advantage of this form of report is that it is cheaper than a full survey. 


The fourth type of survey is a Building Survey, also known as a Structural Survey or a Full Survey. This includes a full inspection of all accessible parts of the property and reports in detail upon everything that can be seen. The report can be produced as a preset format or in a bespoke style to suit your requirements and those of the property in question and the report will deal with all parts of the building and covers defects or maintenance issues in detail.


If you are unsure which type of survey is right for you, give us a call and we'll happily go through your options to make sure you chose the right survey for your needs and budget - 01704 872 035
