Why do you need a RICS Home Survey?

Because forewarned is forearmed. Choosing the right survey and an RICS surveyor will help highlight any serious problems and put you in an informed position before you commit to the process of buying a property.

Don't rely on your mortgage company.

Your mortgage lender’s report is an opinion on value of the property and is not a survey of it’s condition. Only an RICS Home Survey will tell you the actual condition, which can be vital to avoiding a nasty surprise later on or invaluable to negotiating the right price for your purchase.

Choose the right survey, save money.

Many buyers think that they need a Building Survey (now called Level 3), but don’t know that often a Level 2 is more appropriate for their property and cheaper too. Typically, Level 3 Surveys are required if you are buying a large, older or run-down property, or if the building is unusual or has been altered. Otherwise, a Level 2 is appropriate and cheaper. We are happy to advise on this

Delays can be costly.

All too often, vendors get frustrated by delays in their house sale and collapse the deal if the buyer isn’t showing signs of moving forward. With one of the largest teams of residential RICS Surveyors in Greater Manchester, we can usually book your appointment in quickly and we have a 24 hour turnaround on issuing the reports to you.

Book your survey with us.

We can talk to you about the type of property you are buying and advise on the right type of survey for you. We can give your vendor confidence by booking the appointment in straight away and with our large team of RICS Surveyors, we can usually get to jobs in the same week.

Receive your report fast

Within 24 hours of the survey taking place, your surveyor will send you their report with a clear “traffic light” rating system highlighting any areas which require attention. If repairs are needed, you may need to re-negotiate the purchase price of the property. Our sales administration department can offer you guidance as to whether this is necessary.

Talk to your surveyor

Very occasionally, we have clients who want to understand more about a particular observation in their report. No problem, our Surveyors are normal people who will be happy talk to you about what they have seen and why they have reported on it in the way they have.

Move in or walk away

Your report puts you in an informed position. Is this a house purchase you should proceed with, at a price you are happy with, or do you need to renegotiate or even walk away. Once you have bought the property, it is your responsibility, even if you think the vendor should have told you about an existing problem.

Mr Murie and his team priced me with a quote quickly. I was very happy observing his professional way of working. He knew exactly where to look and where to take photos. The report was professional and very detailed.

The communication we received was very quick and friendly. Once we had decided to proceed with the Survey it was completed very promptly and we received the results back after a few days. It was reasonably priced and we would definitely recommend Edward Mellor Survey.

Really fair price, report was very thorough and great value for money. Sana even called on the day to check if there were any areas of concern I wanted special attention paying to. And the turnaround time was great too.

Amazing Company, we instructed for a HomeBuyers report and we got a date for a week after the instructions, we were told the report would be with us 3-5 working days after the inspection took place to which I thought was very reasonable but we actually received the report the very next day. I cannot recommend this company enough brilliant customer service and a brilliant report and very reasonably priced. Thank you so much !

Sales commission is the fee charged by the auctions team for successfully selling the property. It is invoiced after exchange of contracts and usually settled by deduction from the deposit paid by the purchaser. The rate of commission is agreed between the seller and auctions team and shown in the Agency Agreement which sets out the fees and terms of business that apply.

The property will be marketed to over 300,000 potential buyers via our bespoke email campaigns and on top of this, our dedicated 26,500 followers on Social Media, nearly 17,000 of these on our auction Twitter alone, will have unlimited access to browse it digitally. We pride ourselves on giving you the best platforms to expose the property to the maximum number of potential buyers, ensuring that the best price is achieved, in a quick time frame and with complete transparency. Of course we are on Rightmove, and auction specialist site, the Essential Information Group, but it is our unique positioning in the auction world as estate agents who started to do auctions that sets us apart.

Reasons to choose auction include the speed and certainty that it offers; there is no faster way to sell and success rates through to completion are far higher than through estate agents. Other attractions are that it delivers a legally binding sale with contracts exchanged on the fall of the hammer, so neither party can pull out of the sale or try to renegotiate the price. The competitive bidding process aims to drive the price up so the property achieves its best possible price on the day too.

If you have a quick look through our current auction catalogue, you’ll notice we sell a property much every type of property, in any condition, anywhere in the UK. From family homes, plots of land, refurbishment projects, shops, hotels, blocks of flats, city centre apartments and more much – you name it, we’ve mostly likely sold it.

Our selling fees can vary depending on the location, condition and value of your property. We recommend that you discuss this with our valuer at the appointment stage.
