When your client purchases a property, their chosen mortgage lender will carry out a basic valuation, either in person or via a desktop valuation to check they’re happy to lend the agreed mortgage figure on the property. Many buyers are potentially unaware of the limitations of this basic valuation and may benefit from a more thorough survey of the property before they commit.
What Surveys/Valuations do Sort Move offer?
· Basic Valuation – Useful in various circumstances, for existing owners when they’re wanting to find out the value, or during the process of Probate for example.
· Homebuyer Report/Level 2
