We are a team of fully trained professionals on hand to offer our expert opinion and advice on the condition of a property. Our experience has given us an in-depth understanding of a wide range of properties and surveys.
We will present our findings in a report that’s tailor made to your property and requirements. We will offer our advice to our clients in a friendly yet efficient manner, delivered with an efficient, flexible and professional service.
Our RICS homebuyer report is suited for properties that are built within the last 120 years, remain in a good condition and haven’t had any extension or reconstruction work carried out. This report is essential to assess the condition and structure of the property you’re about to buy.
A RICS regulated chartered surveyor will carry out a thorough examination and search for areas of concerns that will affect accessible parts of your property, structural damage, damage to timbers and a valuation of the property.
When required, we will offer our professional and expert opinion on the condition of your property and provide advice for any repairs you may need, including an estimated cost for the repairs. We will talk you through our results, offering help whenever necessary.
If your property is a listed building, older than 120 years or has significant reconstruction work or damage to the condition, you will need our RICS building survey. This survey is a lot more comprehensive than our homebuyer report as it offers a thorough examination of the interior and exterior of your property, including looking under floorboards and in the attic.
During our building survey, we will be able to assess the history of the property by looking at the materials used to build the house as well as the condition of the property. We will also examine the condition of outbuildings such as garages.
We will highlight our findings with evidence in a report that’s easy to read, with an explanation from a RICS chartered surveyor. We offer our expert and professional advice on how to fix repairs and damages.
