What type of property survey should you have?

If you are taking out a mortgage the lender will insist upon carrying out a valuation inspection. Although you will bear the cost of this it is just a valuation for the lender's purposes and not a survey. The two most common types of property survey are an RICS Homebuyer Survey and Valuation, often referred to as a Homebuyer's Report and a Building Survey. The Homebuyer's Report will be suitable in most cases. The exceptions are properties that are more than 150 years old, that have been substantially altered or that have known structural problems. If any of these exceptions apply a Building Survey, previously known as a Full Structural survey, will be more appropriate.

Properties to the south of the area are generally the most sought after. Highbury is flanked by 3 tube stations; Arsenal Station is located next to the site of the old football stadium, Highbury and Islington to the south and Holloway Road to the west. All are located in zone 2 of the underground with average commuting times to the West End of approximately 15 minutes.
