Residential Property Surveys

In East Belfast and North Down

Generally speaking there are three types of house inspections and surveys available to someone considering buying a property. The simplest is a walkthrough valuation as carried out for a mortgage lender and the most complex is a building survey (formerly called a structural survey). The RICS HomeBuyer report is designed to fall between the two and gives an overview of the condition of each element of the property.

Why a valuation is not a survey The importance of getting a home survey

Watch the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors video:

The RICS HomeBuyer report identifies

  • Cracking, damp, woodworm, rot etc.
  • Safety issues
  • Highlights matters that in the surveyor's opinion are serious and/or urgent
  • Includes a recommended rebuilding cost for insurance
  • Can be delivered electronically or/and by post
  • A valuation can be provided as an extra

The cost for our house or property surveys is typically between £325 and £425 including VAT depending on the size, condition and location of the property and whether there are extensions and outbuildings.

In the case of a relatively young property it may be more cost effective to have the same detailed inspection but a simpler report of about three pages. As this saves considerable time it can be provided for about £325 depending on the house.
