There are growing concerns about the role of valuation surveyors in the downturn.
Peter Redfern, of Britain's biggest house builder Taylor Wimpey, told the Daily Telegraph that he was "concerned and frustrated" that valuers are not judging home
He said that these valuations then become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
He also said that some lenders have put pressure on valuers so they limit the size of the mortgage.
