The Cambridge has become the first lender to support Legal & General Surveying Services’ new digital survey platform, SmartrSurvey.
SmartrSurvey provides customers with a full, easy to understand report along with documentation and photographic evidence allowing them to act upon any defects found in the process.
Tracy Simpson, head of lending at The Cambridge, said: “We are delighted to be the first lender to support this innovative solution from Legal & General Surveying Services.
“At The Cambridge we’re always keen to introduce new initiatives to the property buying process to benefit our customers.”
Richard Fisk, operations director at Legal & General Surveying Services, added: “In an ever changing world where property valuations for mortgage lending are becoming more automated, it is imperative that customers who are buying properties are fully informed.
“Having a survey provides the vital information they need to buy with confidence and helps avoid unexpected household maintenance bills.”
