Providing quality service, fast turnaround time and connecting buyers to local Surveyors is key to our business model.
What is the Price of a Home Buyer Survey?
We use a fixed price model of £599 including VAT for a standard Level 2 Home Buyer Report. That includes the visit arrangement, site visit (min 1 hour), the report and a follow-up phone call if requested by the client.

How much does a Surveyor get per survey?
All payments are taken online and paid to the Surveyor, less commission, weekly. For a Home Buyer Report the Surveyor will receive £500 per survey. For a Full Structural Survey Report the Surveyor will receive £800 per survey.
We have made the conscious decision not to offer Level 1 Condition reports as they consume too much time to prepare and do not pay the surveyors enough for their time and effort.
Surveyors are responsible for their own tax contributions.
What is the commission used for?
The site commission is used to cover transaction charges, website developers, maintenance, SEO, PPC and essentially national and international scale.

Is there Artificial intelligence (AI) behind GetHouseSurvey.co.uk?
Powering GetHouseSurvey.co.uk is what we call our Surveyor Assignment Machine, or SAM. SAM takes several factors into account when offering and assigning jobs to surveyors. Factors include location of property, areas covered by the Surveyor, previous Surveyor feedback rating, previous Surveyor turnaround time as well as many more.
Why would / am I being offered surveys outside of areas I said I cover?
SAM is always trying to learn and ensure we meet customer’s needs. If we have low coverage or cannot assign to the local Surveyor, SAM will make a second-round offer to surveyors on the periphery to try get a match.
Accepting offers outside of your areas boosts your Surveyor rating and improves the chances of getting first round offers in the future.
How many Surveyors are on-board?
Limited places are available country wide to ensure adequate coverage but maintain high quality service and value for the professionals that are part of the team. We are already recruiting around the country. However, we need more Surveyors to have quality coverage. Sign up today to find out more.
How much does it cost to sign up to the platform as a Surveyor?
To sign up to GetHouseSurvey.co.uk as a Surveyor it will only cost £25 per month on a subscription basis. Getting one survey alone from the platform will instantly cover your years subscription. We offer a 30 day free trial before the subscription begins to give us time to establish an SEO presence in the areas you cover.
Why is there a subscription cost as a Surveyor?
The biggest issue we foresee is those Surveyors “committing” to participate but failing to actually be active on the platform. This has a negative impact on both the buyers looking for a quick response and the Surveyors that are actually active on the platform.
