    Valuer requesting a second specialist report?? 9th Aug 18 at 2:37 PM
    Hoping Iím not the first to experience this...

    My partner and I have recently applied for a mortgage, and our valuation came back at a £0 market value as they requested we have a specialist survey carried out to check for damp, rot and timber infestation - and carry out remedial work under guarantee - prior to receiving our mortgage offer.

    Fair enough.

    Had the survey completed - all fine with no remedial work required! Fantastic I thought...

    The valuer has come back to say they want us to have yet another report on the property!?

    I canít understand this. Has anyone experienced this before and if so how did you have it resolved? Very frustrated at present!

    Do you mean another report on damp, rot and timber infestation, or another report on something else?


    If it's another report on damp, rot, and timber infestation, you need to ask the valuer why the current report isn't acceptable.

    For example, I guess it could be because the specialist survey you had wasn't done by somebody with acceptable professional qualifications/membership.

    If something like that was the problem, you'd need to get another survey and follow the valuer's requirements more precisely.

    They want the same survey done again. What I can!!!8217;t understand is why, as the company we used have the required qualifications/memberships etc.
    On their initial valuation they didn!!!8217;t specify any areas in which they found any cause for concern, so I don!!!8217;t know why they aren!!!8217;t appeased by the report we have already had carried out - which states clearly there is no sign of damp, rot or timber infestation and no remedial work required.
    Seems very odd to me...

    So as I say, if the valuer hasn't told you why the survey/report isn't acceptable, you need to ask the valuer the reason.
