Why do you need a property survey?

A survey will help you to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying a property. Before you are legally bound to proceed with a purchase, you can gather information regarding the risks by asking chartered surveyors, Osborne Irish Associates, to answer the following questions for you:

  • What is a reasonable price to pay for the property?
  • Are there any serious or urgent defects or specific risks with the property?

Arranging your own survey is the simple, cost effective way to avoid unpleasant and perhaps expensive surprises after moving in. In some cases, the surveyor’s report of the building may allow you to renegotiate the price of the property.

With my mortgage valuation report, do I still need a survey?

Even if you are looking for a mortgage and, as a result, may be paying for a mortgage valuation report, we still recommend that you arrange a survey by your own surveyor.

The mortgage valuation report is prepared for your lender, not for you, the borrower. It answers only the lender’s questions about whether the property offers suitable security for your loan. You cannot rely on it to answer the questions that concern your personal interests or to give you details of the condition of the property. Also, some lenders do not provide a copy of their mortgage valuation report.

We visit customers to carry out our surveys across a vast service area. This includes Bristol, Bath, Weston-super-Mare, Chipping Sodbury, Clevedon, Stroud, Portishead and all surrounding areas across Somerset, Gloucestershire and South East Wales .
