Buying property is a long-term financial commitment and probably the biggest purchase you'll ever make, so it's definitely worth investing a relatively small amount of money to ensure it is a good sound investment. Having a property survey can save you money in the short and long-term. The outcome of a survey can allow you to budget for any repair work that's required, and can also used to negotiate on the asking price.
For peace of mind and before proceeding with your purchase, choose the survey that's right for you.
A 'valuation' or valuation report are normally carried out by your mortgage lender and will only check to confirm the valuation of the property and whether it's suitable for a mortgage. What it's not is a detailed inspection of your property that can save you time and money.
