To find out how we’re currently managing physical property valuations, read our Coronavirus FAQs.

A mortgage valuation helps us make a decision on your application. With exception to remortgages and additional borrowing, when you apply for a mortgage, we'll ask you to choose from two levels of inspection and report. Unless we tell you otherwise you will have to pay the cost of this. Once the valuation has taken place the fee for this is non-refundable. In Scotland the seller of a property has to get a Home Report, which contains a property valuation. We may accept the valuation if the surveyor is RICS accredited.

To help with your decision to buy it is important that you understand the property’s condition and any issues that may affect its value. If you want a more detailed report than the level 1 or level 2 valuation that we offer, you may wish to consider a full building survey. You will need to make your own arrangements to get one. To do this you can use, a RICS accredited surveyor, they can be found at www.ricsfirms.com.

A building survey will give you a customised report based on the agreement between you and the surveyor. We will still need to complete a mortgage valuation, which you will need to pay for. We need this to help us make a decision on whether we will lend you the money to buy the property.

Valuation Schemes

What it is

Mortgage Valuation(Level 1)

A basic property valuation for the Bank that is purely to help us make a decision on whether we will lend you the money to buy the property.

It is used for lending purposes only, so if you require a more detailed inspection, you may wish to consider a level 2 valuation or arranging for your own building survey.

Survey and Valuation(Level 2)

This is a survey for you, detailing the essential things you need to know about the property (it is a contract between you and the surveyor).

A valuation is also provided that helps us make a decision on whether we will lend you the money to buy the property.

Building Survey

This is the most detailed type of survey available and you can tailor it to meet your needs.

We cannot arrange this type of survey for you and can't recommend a surveyor, but can provide details to help you find an RICS accredited surveyor.

We will still need to arrange a separate Mortgage Valuation for lending purposes and you will need to pay the fee for this if applicable.

Valuation Schemes

How it's done

Mortgage Valuation(Level 1)

We will decide if we want a surveyor to visit and assess the property, or we may use a combination of historical and market data to compare your property to others in the local area.

Survey and Valuation(Level 2)

A surveyor will visit to assess the inside and outside of the property.

Before this happens, the surveyor will send you the terms of their agreement for you to accept.

Building Survey

You will need to arrange this type of survey yourself.

Usually, once instructed, you will discuss matters with your surveyor to agree what will be covered by the report and any concerns you may have about the property. An internal and/or external inspection of the property will follow, based on your requirements.

Valuation Schemes

What you get

Mortgage Valuation(Level 1)

If a surveyor has visited the property you will get a copy of the report. It will give very limited information about the property.

If a surveyor has not visited the property, there will be no report to provide. Instead we will tell you if our assessment of the value means we will not lend you the loan amount requested.

Survey and Valuation(Level 2)

The survey gives you guidance on the essential things you may need to know about the property, such as defects and problems that are serious or that may significantly affect the value.

Building Survey

A customised report based on the agreement between you and the surveyor.

Valuation Schemes

What it means for you

Mortgage Valuation(Level 1)

Defects that could affect your decision to buy may not be identified, and it should not be relied on for your buying decision.

Survey and Valuation(Level 2)

It does not give a full structural assessment.

Whilst it may give details of issues with the property, it may not go into the level of detail you require.

You will not get a copy of the basic valuation report provided to us.

Building Survey

As this is a customised report you get to choose what is included within the report.

We will still need to arrange a separate Mortgage Valuation for lending purposes and you will need to pay the fee for this, if applicable.
