When I asked my solicitor - who is on the Pepper Homeloans conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Pepper Homeloans will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Pepper Homeloans will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller. or Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Pepper Homeloans you could contact your them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors.
