Different types of surveys

Property Surveys
  • Condition Survey

The Condition Report is the most standard of property surveys. It will be an outline survey of the building, highlighting any defects or urgent problems with the property, or even any potential dangers the property poses. This can be enough to ensure that you make a well-informed decision on whether you purchase the property or not.

  • HomeBuyer’s Survey

A Homebuyer’s Survey will help you make a well-informed decision about purchasing a property in London. It can help assess whether you’re paying a fair price as well as minimising the risk of unexpected issues and costs arising in the future.

  • Building Survey

RICS Building Survey is the most detailed of our property surveys. The Building Survey gives you a thorough assessment of the structure, condition and construction of a property, as well as technical advice on any repairs needed.

Do you need a survey when buying a house?

While it’s not strictly required to conduct a survey when buying a house, it is highly recommended to do so. A property survey is an assessment of the land and buildings on the property, which can help uncover any potential issues or defects that could affect the property’s value or safety.

Chartered Building Surveyors in London can reveal important information such as the exact boundaries of the property, any easements or rights of way, the location of underground utilities, and any encroachments or zoning violations. It can also identify potential hazards like flood zones, unstable soil, or underground water sources.

Getting a survey can provide you with peace of mind and protect you from future legal disputes over property boundaries or other issues. Many mortgage lenders require a survey before approving a loan, and it is often included as a contingency in the purchase agreement.

In summary, while a survey may not be required by law, it is a crucial step in the home-buying process that can help ensure a smooth and safe transaction.

Do I need a Party Wall Surveyor?

A Party wall is the shared wall between two properties, in which both owners either side of the wall are responsible for.

You may need the advice from a Party Wall Surveyor if you are planning any of the following:

  • The construction of a new wall at the boundary of two properties
  • Cutting into a Party Wall (for example, removal of a chimney breast or insertion of a steel supporting beam)
  • Knocking down or rebuilding an existing Party Wall
  • Knocking down or rebuilding a boundary wall under a Line of Junction Notice
  • Excavations within 3-6 metres of a neighbouring property’s foundations
