Explanation:
or more extensive - Utredning. I'm not sure I get the angle, but I take it that you refer to all the various things that you have to deal with when selling a house..

Besiktning, Slutbesiktning


Explanation:
When selling/buying a house, the buyer has the opportunity to call on an independent inspector to chech for any errors regarding the buildings condition. When building a new house, a "Slutbesiktning" is standard procedure in Sweden.
Mats is correct but to clarify the context, use the above "Besiktning".

Värdering


Explanation:
När jag sålde mitt hus, gjordes en opartisk värdering av en besiktningsgubbe som satte ett slags marknadspris.

Att det sedan blev rena kriget vid budgivning är en annan sak...

it depends on what you mean by "survey"


Explanation:
If what is really meant by survey is "appraisal", then Hans is right, but otherwise, I think that Mats is more on the right track.
When a survey is performed (which the lender and/or buyer usually requests), a surveyor will come out, often with a previous survey to asess it's correctness. He will make a physical verification of the boundary lines and any existing structures, and will issue a survey.Alternately, a surveyor could conduct a cursory comparison of an existing survey with the property, and would then issue a location improvement certificate.

agree  Hans-Bertil Karlsson: Depends on which country... In Sweden I have never heard of the survey you talk about but maybe in US...

  -> That might be true. A survey is not the same as an appraisal or an inspection though, as suggested here.
