For Sellers

Many homeowners forget that a residential survey will undoubtedly increase the odds of selling your home for the best possible price. By anticipating the needs and expectations of the purchaser, you can maintain control of the process and deal with any complications before they arise.

Our surveyors will act on your behalf to provide an unbiased report on the property. Identifying any potential issues or defects that may affect the potential market value of your home.

By dealing with any issues that arise from the appraisal and/or disclosing the findings of the survey to the buyer, you can potentially reduce the chance of any unwanted or expensive surprises later down the line.

Private Valuation

Completed via a physical inspection, these reports provide an independent assessment on the current value of the property.

When providing these valuations, our surveyors will consider the age, size, and condition of the home (as well as several other factors) before comparing these to similar properties that have sold in the local area. Because of this, our Private Valuations are suitable for a wide range of purposes including:


  • Help to Buy – For homeowners looking to redeem their Help to Buy equity loan. Learn more here.
  • Shared Equity – For anyone looking to sell or ‘staircase’ (buy more shares in) their shared ownership property. Learn more here.
  • Probate IHT – A requirement of the probate process to value the assets of the deceased’s estate. Learn more here.
  • Reinstatement Costs – Outlines the full costs involved in rebuilding your property in the event of major loss due to an insured peril such as fire, flood, impact damage, escape of water, etc. Learn more here.
  • Secured Lending – May be required if your lender asks you to find a valuer when your property will be security for a loan. Learn more here.
  • Capital Gains – Required whenever a residential asset is being sold or disposed of and can be retrospective where a ‘base date’ is required for the calculation. Learn more here.

And Much More…

Remote Valuation

As our latest service, Remote Valuations represent the fastest way to obtain an independent valuation of a residential home. This is because no physical inspection of the property is necessary at any stage of the process.

Instead, our surveyors use a combination of comparable properties (that have sold in the local area) and information available via a range of commercial/government funded websites to provide an indication of the market value – adjusting for any differences in age/size/type/condition etc of the comparable properties. Avoiding the hassle or inconvenience typically associated with a physical inspection.

Home Condition Report

A Home Condition Report represents one of the most cost-effective solutions to those who require a general overview of the property but are limited by their finances. By utilising a traffic-light based system, any identified issues or defects will be allocated one of the following condition categories:

This information is presented alongside details on the general construction, as well as any other potential risks or serious defects that should be considered. All of which is presented a straightforward and digestible assessment.
