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.

Richard gained his honours degree at Oxford, before proceeding to secure a PostGrad in Building Conservation and the Historic Environment and a Masters in Business Administration. He qualified with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors back in 1995.
Richard's broad career to-date means that he is also qualified to advise on and undertake construction management, project design, specification writing and contract administration. That broad range of skills makes him a dependable professional and a valuable property consultant for any project or investment, large or small.
Richard and his team can also help if you are looking to move to the area, but are too far away to make viewing multiple properties practical. Richard himself can carry out 'viewing inspections' on your behalf, inspecting the property and providing you with a comprehensive bank of photos and a short report to help you make the right choice.

A famous landmark is Chichester Cathedral which was founded around the 11th century. Its spire was initially built of the weak local stone and collapsed and had to be rebuilt during the 19th century. In the southern aisle of the cathedral there lies a glass panel in the floor which enables visitors to see the remains of a Roman mosaic pavement.
