Established in 1991, we are Crowes Property Surveys. Our surveys are carried out by chartered property surveyor Tim Crowe, who is accredited and regulated by RICS and the Surveyors and Valuers Accreditation Scheme (SAVA). We are based in Surrey and provide our services in and around the Surrey area.
We are proud to provide a RICS Homebuyer Report and a RICS Full Building Survey to make life easier when it comes to buying a house. Our findings will be presented in a jargon-free easy to understand report with photographic evidence of every issue that we find. A RICS chartered surveyor will talk you through the report and help you with any areas you may be confused about.
Our Homebuyer Report is an in-depth survey suited for modern properties that haven’t had any major reconstruction work done. A RICS regulated surveyor will carry out an in-depth examination of the property’s condition and structure.
We will search for any issues that could cause a problem in the future, as well as pressing immediate causes of concern. We have over 25 years’ experience of surveying properties, therefore we have gained an extensive knowledge of the industry over the years.
We use a simple ‘traffic light’ rating system to give your property a condition rating of 1, 2 or 3. If you receive condition rating 1 then there’s no need for repairs and a 3 means there’s major areas of concern that need urgent repair.
Our Full Building Survey is suited for older properties that were constructed with unusual materials and have had major construction work done or plan to. A RICS regulated chartered surveyor will carry out the survey, looking for minor and major construction and structural damage.
This survey is the most comprehensive, offering a more thorough examination than our homebuyer report. A chartered surveyor will look behind furniture and under floorboards.
Similarly, we will present our findings in an easy to understand report. We will talk you through our results and explain anything you may be unsure about.
