First established in 1873, Cheke & Co have 175 years of combined experience as a team of RICS registered chartered surveyors.
We are proud to offer our homebuyer report and building survey across Essex, some parts of Greater London and the Suffolk borders. Carrying out 1,300 surveys each year, it’s safe to say we have an in-depth understanding and knowledge of property surveying.
Cheke & Co have many customers who continue to use us as we always deliver a high standard of service on every job.
You will need our RICS homebuyer report when the property you’re buying is modern, in good condition, hasn’t had reconstruction or extension work, and was built with commonly used building materials.
You will be assigned one of our qualified and professional chartered surveyors to carry out an in-depth examination of the property to search for hidden damages and defects. We will gather our findings and present them in a jargon-free report.
We will talk you through the report and explain what the damage is and how to go about repairing the damage.
When you’re buying an older house, you will need our RICS building survey. This survey is more comprehensive than the homebuyer report as this is made for older, listed buildings that were built using unique materials.
Our report will be able to tell you what materials were used to construct certain parts of the property whilst searching for any internal or external structural damage. We will put our findings in an easy to read report using plain English.
We will offer our expert advice and opinion on the damage and defects we find during our survey, explaining anything you don’t understand.
