Valuation Survey

A Valuation Survey is the most basic survey and simply assesses the value of the property. The surveyor is not commissioned to undertake a detailed survey and therefore condition will not be reported.

A valuation is not a full survey and is unlikely to go into detail about the state of the property. There may be structural problems that would cost a huge amount to put right that simply won’t be picked up. The majority of home buyers rely on the lender’s mortgage valuation alone, but the Council of Mortgage Lenders strongly advise that you get a more detailed survey done before you purchase a property

A valuation is usually arranged by a Bank, Building Society or Finance Provider, when they are considering providing a mortgage. The aim of the report is to inform the lender of the value of the property and to ensure the mortgage is appropriate.  It is a slimmed down report and will not have the detail that would be found in a HomeBuyer Report or in a Building Survey.

A valuation can also be instructed by a homeowner for probate, tax, matrimonial or other financial reason. If you are looking to value a lease extension this is a different type of valuation.
