A Mortgage Valuation Report

Mortgage Valuation & Pre Purchase Survey

A building engineer will visit the property and carry out a inspection to ensure that the property is in a reasonable condition, and worth the purchasing price. This is the usually the cheapest type of survey, and it will not highlight any defects which aren’t immediately obvious.

Building and Property Survey:

Pre Purchase | Building Engineers Survey

This is a second tier survey which is more in-depth than a Mortgage Valuation Report. When an engineering consultant is engaged to carry out a Property survey, they will make an overall assessment of the condition of the property.

They will also report any problems which may require urgent attention or repairs.
After completion you will receive a comprehensive report which includes an approximate calculation of the rebuilding costs of the property. This report highlight’s immediate problems which have been found which would affect the value of the property in the future.

Property Snag Lists

A snag list is a list of construction and finishing details that require finishing in order for works to be accepted as complete. Prior to accepting any building as finished or complete, it is recommended that the works are snagged.

We undertake detailed snag lists as requested. All unfinished works on a room by room basis. The list also includes external works that may be required.
