As RICS Accredited Surveyors in Cornwall – Roskilly Surveyors are best placed to offer a variety of surveys to property owners and potential property owners in Cornwall.

Our surveys will let you know precisely what you can expect when buying a property and what the potential risks associated with it might be. These reports are reliable and cost effective, potentially saving you a great deal of money when you buy.

Not a Mortgage Valuation

Please remember that your mortgage valuation is only really sufficient to tell a lender if the house you are buying is sufficient security for the sum loaned. This means that it is not letting you know important things like the actual condition of the property and what potential work it may require. This is the kind of thing that it is very important for you to know when buying. So we offer valuation as well as a survey in one of our RICS level 2 packages.

The information that our surveys can provide is useful when buying and also for when you are selling, as it will highlight areas that may be used by buyers to bargain down sale prices. It is also useful of you are considering staying in a property (or renting it long-term) as it will highlight potential costs in the future.
