Why is an Independent Surveyor a Good Investment?

Buying a property, even as a private dwelling, is one of the largest investments many people will make in their lives. As of February 2016, the average price of property in England and Wales was £190,275, rising to £530,368 in London. One of the most powerful tools to aid somebody looking to invest in property is the knowledge and experience of a Chartered Surveyor. Depending on whether you require detailed information on the condition or value of a property, there is a choice of surveys within the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) suite to suit your requirements.


Despite the variety of information available to homebuyers and investors prior to making such an investment, only 20% undertake some form of independent survey before purchasing. With any other investment, such a low proportion of investors completing even the most basic of due diligence before investing would be concerning. The average cost of a home survey outside of London is £400, which is roughly 0.25% the average property value.
