A Few FAQs....
YES - In fact the older the house or property the more reason there is for having a full building survey.
Buying a house or flat is one of the most expensive outlays most people make during their lives. Every house and flat is different in both construction and condition and many properties have been altered and extended over the years. The report will cover all these areas with appropriate advice. Unknown defects and problems can also be expensive to resolve. A proper survey is a good independent written record of the condition of the building at the time of purchase.
No. If you need a mortgage to buy your house then a lender will need you to pay for a mortgage valuation report. However, this is not a survey and should not be mistaken as such. A mortgage valuation report is just that - a valuation of the property for the mortgage lender to confirm that the property is worth the amount that you want to borrow. However, this report will only highlight obvious defects. For a full survey the surveyor works for the buyer and will conduct a more detailed examination into the property's structural integrity, repairs, maintenance and condition.
