Hi Ruby

It involves a qualified surveyor coming and spending at least 2 hrs at ur home checking on all sorts of things like subsidence, Damp & Timer probs, roof issues,electrical probs, plumbing etc. I take it u r selling ur home to someone who is obtaining a mortgage then, cos it is ur purchasers choice to either have a basic valuation for mortgage purposes or the more in depth Homebuyers report ( There is a third option of The Full Structural survey aswell)

Hope that helps
