The best way to reach an informed decision on such an important investment as a home is to have a professional survey and valuation of the property which interests you, before you decide to go ahead and commit yourself.
Commissioning your own survey is the simple, economical way to avoid unpleasant - and perhaps costly - surprises after moving in.
Even if you are getting a Mortgage Valuation report, it is still advisable and prudent to arrange a survey by your own surveyor, as advised by Which? magazine and the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
If you have a particular concern - perhaps whether the property is suitable for a disabled person - the surveyor will keep this in mind during the inspection.
