Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do You Need a Home Survey?

You don’t legally have to get a survey when buying a house, but it’s highly recommended and can save you a lot of money further down the line. Did you know that a quarter of homebuyers who didn’t have a survey are hit with unexpected bills for property repairs, which equate to a whopping £3,676 on average!? 

By enlisting the help of our RICS residential surveyors, you’ll eliminate the risks of any unexpected costs and financial loss from issues that arise once you sign on the dotted line, which you could be liable for.

What Are the Benefits Of a Home Survey?

There are a whole host of benefits when it comes to home surveys, and they often end up paying for themselves! A house survey can help you:

  • Avoid unexpected costs in the form of repairs
  • Negotiate a fair price for the property at hand
  • Get a full understanding of the property’s condition, good or bad
  • Prepare for future works on the property

How Much Does a Home Survey Cost?

The cost of a house survey starts at approximately £400, but the cost can vary depending on:

  • The value of your property
  • The number of bedrooms
  • If your house is old or has a listed status
  • If there are any special features present
  • The type of survey conducted (a level 3 survey will be more expensive than a level 2 home survey, as the survey goes into more detail, for example)

In a recent study, it was found that surveys that highlighted an issue with the property led to an average discount of £5,744 on the house (which is far more than the survey itself!) – so they certainly pay for themselves.
