  • I presume you mean what happens when a surveyor visits your property. The simple answer is it depends on the degree of survey comissioned. A simple mortgage valuation the surveyor will walk around the property looking for any obvious issues and will take around 30 min to an hour- it is basically a valuation not really a survey. A homebuyers report is more in depth and will take significantly longer and will involve looking in the roof, damp level checks etc. Whilst a building condition report will take upto a half day and is best viewed as a full mot on the house.

  • The surveyor will inspect your property for any defects, the more expensive the survey booked the longer it will take and the closer and more in depth will be the search for defects. Then based on what else has sold in the area in recent times, taking into account and works needed to be done they will also provide a valuation.
