Still, good advice.
Unfortunately most insurance companies require surveys from NAMS or SAMS accredited surveyors. I can obviously do my own, have worked with a close friend for years who is a very good surveyor, but I am not acredited by NAMS or SAMS so I still pay for them.

there is however absolutely NO need to be surprised by what a surveyor finds. You can also work out a cheaper deal to do an "insurance only" safetya and value survey if you are comfortable in what you've seen and inspected.
