Home Buyers Surveys In Rickmansworth by Woodward Chartered Surveyors

Woodward Surveyors offer home buyer surveys in Rickmansworth for clients thinking about buying a new home in the Rickmansworth area of Hertfordshire, situated north west of London.

Our survey for home buyers in Rickmansworth is a service we feel is the best mix of the older RICS Homebuyer Survey and Valuation Report but with updates and some of the features of our Building Survey, so the report loses none of the value for money of a Homebuyer survey.

The Rickmansworth Home Buyers Survey Report

A Rickmansworth home buyers survey is a report that is designed to assist any potential buyer of a residential property to make a reasoned and informed judgement on whether to proceed with a purchase.

A home buyers survey's purpose is to report on matters of a significant nature that may substantially affect the property's value, which is what most home buyers are looking for. It is more of a surface examination of a property, rather than "invasive" survey i.e. the surveyor does not lift up floorboards or similar. It is not suitable for all property types, sometimes only a building survey is recommended.  Our team are on hand to help you decide which survey is best for you.

In the video we cover the differences between a survey from a mortgage lender and an independent survey provided by Woodward Chartered Surveyors.
