What types of survey are there?

An independent professional survey should be an essential tool in the purchasing process, regardless of whether you have specific concerns regarding the property you are thinking of buying. Many structural problems and other building issues may not be immediately obvious to the layman, requiring specialist analysis to disclose the full facts. Cosey Homes offer a wide range of surveys, reports and property valuations that are designed to provide you with this valuable information, presented in an easy-to-understand format.

What can we help with?

Why is a mortgage valuation not enough?

A mortgage valuation survey is carried out on behalf of the lender and is solely for the benefit of risk assessment. It will not give you any information about the condition of the property – for your own peace of mind, an independent home survey is highly recommended.

Which survey should I choose?

Choosing the right survey for your property and your needs can be a confusing decision. The team at Cosey Homes are happy to bring their professional expertise to help you advise on the pros and cons of each type of survey, helping you make the best decision for your purchase.

Will gas and electrics be tested during the survey?

No, they will not. Chartered Surveyors are not qualified gas or electricity engineers, meaning we are unable to test services by law. We will conduct a visual inspection and usually recommend further investigation by a qualified professional.

What is gazumping?

Your purchase only becomes legally binding when contracts are exchanged. Until then, it is possible for another buyer to come along and make a higher offer, which the seller is perfectly within his legal rights to accept, pushing you out of the process. This situation is known as gazumping.

How will I receive the survey report?

Once the survey report has been written and checked for quality control, you will be sent your copy as a PDF document via email. Where required, we can also send a hard copy in the post to you for an additional fee.

How long until I get my report?

At Cosey Homes, customer satisfaction is key, meaning we will endeavour to work as swiftly as we can to deliver your report. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to receive your report within 5 working days from the date of the survey visit.
