A mortgage valuation is not the same as a home survey, and is for the benefit of your lender. It provides information for your bank to understand whether the property will act as viable security for the loan you've asked for.
The aim of an independent property survey (Level 2 or 3) is to identify any potential areas of concern that you may not be aware of and could be costly to put right. The last thing you want is for any major expense you were unprepared for to suddenly crop up not long after you have moved in.
Of course all properties require maintaining in their lifetime, but commissioning a home survey can give peace of mind that something unexpected doesn’t crop up that you had not budgeted for which could have been identified prior to purchase.
