A mortgage valuation is for the benefit of the lender while a survey is for your benefit.
A RICS Home Survey will highlight potential problems and getting one done can help you avoid the average £5,750 repair bill that homebuyers face once they have moved into their new home.
RICS Condition Report (level 1)
This report focusses purely on the condition of your property by giving ratings to the different parts of the building and flagging up any areas that need attention.
RICS HomeBuyer Report – Survey or Survey & Valuation (level 2)
The report gives you more detailed information and provides the choice of either a Survey or Survey & Valuation.
RICS Building Survey (level 3)
This survey offers an extensive inspection of property condition and gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property. It includes a description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws and an outline of repair options.

"I would highly recommend John German Lichfield who dealt with my simultaneous sale and purchase very efficiently. The team are very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They held my hand all the way through what was a very stressful time and reassured me when needed. The whole process from putting house up for sale to actually moving in to dream home was less than 3 months in total. Cannot rate highly enough!"
