Buying a house is a big financial commitment, so you don't want to be caught out by not having a clear understanding of exactly what you're buying. House purchases don't come with a refund policy but you can take action to protect yourself by getting a survey allowing you to make a well-informed choice.
Independent surveys are the only way to get a true picture of the property you're considering buying. Unlike a mortgage valuation which is prepared only for your lender's information, surveys provide you with the fullest possible picture of your new home, identifying defects which could be costly for you to put right.
