Property Valuations


A property valuation is an inspection of a property carried out on behalf of the mortgage lender. A valuation is not a survey. It's a limited inspection to identify problems that affect the security of your mortgage lender's loan. You should not just rely on the information provided by a valuation when deciding whether or not to purchase a property.

It is not a survey or condition report. You should have a survey carried out on the property you intend to buy, and carefully consider its results before entering into a contract to buy it (or making an offer in Scotland).

A private property valuation will not be shown or sold to other parties.

Costs: from £200 upwards.
