Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a survey valuation of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.


It is paramount that when buying a property in Truro, or you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us on 0333 344 3234 and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
