Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Chalfont St Peter you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Chalfont St Peter that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise.
