An accurate property survey will give you advice on the property, its construction and any potential environmental issues. This can be crucial information when buying or selling a property as it highlights whether the purchase is a worthy investment.
There are a number of property surveys to choose from. These include:
Each home survey will include a different type of investigation and will be suited to different property types. The Level 3 Survey, for example, is the most thorough and will include a detailed report on both the interior and exterior of the home. To help you compare surveying quotes, we've outlined each survey type below.
Now known as a RICS Home Survey Level 2 Report, the HomeBuyers Survey is recommended for most buyers and modern property types. Our home buyer survey quotes will help you find a reliable surveyor to inspect the property and produce an accurate report. The average cost of a Level 2 Survey is £500 - this was calculated for a property valued at the average UK house price of £267,000.
This inspection efficiently covers the entire property - both inside and outside. Areas of the home will be given a condition rating of 1, 2 or 3 and the report will cover all obvious defects and anything that could have a detrimental effect on the value of the property.
Some of our surveyors may also be able to offer a valuation alongside the level 2 home survey if it is requested when further discussing your quotation and personal requirements. This additional service can cost around £50 extra. If you require a valuation for your mortgage agreement, check with your lender beforehand to ensure they accept this type of report.
A RICS Building Survey, or Level 3 Home Survey, offers an in-depth and detailed report on the construction and condition of the building. The inspection will be very thorough with surveyors reviewing internal and external factors of the property, as well as hard to access areas. This type of home survey will cost an average of £800 in the UK, though it could be as cheap as £630 and as expensive as £1,200.
Compare My Move recommends this kind of survey if you’re buying a large home, an older build house, a thatched cottage, or a period property that you plan to renovate. Our building survey quote could save you headaches in the long run and ensure you make an informed decision.
It’s important that you know the building is safe and that any changes you plan to make can be safely carried out. The qualified Chartered Surveyor you find through Compare My Move's level 3 survey quotes will happily discuss their findings with you.
A RICS Valuation Report will provide you with the true market value of your property or the property you plan to buy. It can cost £320 for the average property in the UK valued at £267,000. However, our research found that costs can be as low as £160 and as high as £600.
A valuation is suited for all property types and will let you know that the building is worth what you’re paying for. All of our valuations are carried out by RICS registered valuers which means your valuation is much more comprehensive and impartial compared to others.
It should be noted that this isn’t a property survey and won’t include a conclusion on the property’s condition but will provide a highly accurate valuation. Some lenders will include a valuation for free or they may start the pricing as little as £75, as long as you choose one of the surveyors they recommend.
