Don’t take the risk when buying a property, ensure you know its true condition before making the purchase. Instructing Prospect’s team of Chartered Surveyors and Valuers will ensure you buy with confidence and could potentially save you thousands of pounds.
Not all property faults are visible to the untrained eye and a variety of underlying issues, from hazardous electrics to rotting windows, often go unnoticed. Surveys are recommended by the Consumers Association and the Council of Mortgage Lenders; they are not something that you should cut corners on.
Our service is delivered to ensure that as prospective buyers, you are fully aware of any underlying issues with your proposed property.
Prospect residential Surveyors and Property Valuers are trained to identify issues with:
All of Prospect’s professional Surveyors are RICS accredited, with a wealth of experience in residential valuations and surveys. We comply with RICS best practice and hold £1m Professional Indemnity Cover. The reports are presented in a clear, easy to read format and highlight any significant defects or problems that require urgent attention.
If you are buying your property through another estate agency, you are able to use Prospect Surveyors and Valuers for your survey. However, if you’re buying with Prospect, we work with a team of independent, accredited Surveyors and Valuers, so you can be sure we have your best interests in mind.

This will be recommended if the property is unusually built, run down, or if you are planning a major renovation. It will provide a full list of any remedial work that should be undertaken and which would affect the value of the property.
A Home Buyer Survey includes an inspection, report and valuation. It is recommended for houses, bungalows or flats that appear to be in a reasonable condition, or are of a traditional construction. This type of survey will highlight any issues or defects that may affect the value of the property if not dealt with.
In addition to these types of surveys, we can also provide:
