To ascertain an accurate value estimate your surveyor will take into account knowledge of Newton Longville and other considerations relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on materials used and draw upon key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no costly legal problems like no laws are broken by use of property. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Newton Longville environmental issues like pig farms, which will also be factored in.
