Which survey is right for you?

Buying a residential property, whether as a home or as a business opportunity can be a significant financial commitment. Ensuring the property is of a suitable type and condition makes sense and may help to avoid a costly decision.

Did you know that a mortgage valuation is only commissioned to satisfy your bank or building society of the financial viability of the loan decision? It does not provide adequate advice and reassurance to you as a purchaser.

Choosing Scargill Mann & Co to undertake a property survey on your behalf might save you many thousands of pounds whilst providing you with peace of mind about your new property.

    RICS HomeBuyer Survey

    A HomeBuyer Report is a survey suitable for conventional properties in reasonable condition. This will help you find out if there are any structural problems, such as subsidence or damp, as well as any other unwelcome hidden issues inside and outside.

    RICS Homebuyer Report

    A detailed report provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property’s condition highlighting a range of issues which includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options. Included with the RICS Building Survey are advice sheets on how to deal with some of the more common problems that have been found at the property.
