Read about our Verification Process
Excellent. Professional. Courteous. Thorough. Prompt.
Kirk-Brown Limited were fantastic, great communication, easy booking in process and the report itself was easy to read and understand
Absolutely superb. Efficient, thorough and reliable.
From initial quote to completing the home buyer survey, Cliff and Helen were very professional and responsive in answering all our queries. He advised us to get a home buyer Level 2 report based on the type of the property. We preferred to have the survey done as soon as possible and he managed to schedule us in for an early date. We received the survey report a few days after. The report came back with an issue in the roof and chimney flashing and was described in the report. He kindly recommended a roof contractor to the vendor to get the roof fixed for us. We would recommend Cliff to any home buyer. Thank you once again, Cliff and Helen.
The company got back to me straightaway when I asked for a quote. They were the best value for money so I went with them. I had a home buyers report completed. It was very thorough and the report was well laid out and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend them. I've put 5 stars for on the day but I was not present as its a house purchase and I have not had any adverse feedback from the vendor so feel that's justified.
Excellent service. The Report was very informative. Good value for money. Would recommend. Customer service was brilliant - nothing too much trouble. Very friendly.
We were very pleased with our choice of surveyor. Email responses were quick and friendly. The report itself was very thorough and explained, in simple terms, any adverse issues with the property. This was so much better than reports i have seen prepared by other surveyors. Very pleased with the service and was good value
Brilliant customer service and easy to use. Very good value for money
Superb service, friendly, carried out a comprehensive and clearly reported survey.
Cliff and Helen were excellent, came back within minutes and had the most competitive quote. Despite being the most competitive, you would think their service would cost a lot more based on the experience received - first rate.
Cliff was friendly, helpful, informative and put everything into laymana??s terms for me to hell my understanding.
Would definitely recommend him for anyone in the area.
Professional & efficient service which I consider to be great value for money.
Was quick to respond initially and communication was via emails (my choice) which were always responded to in a timely manor.
Carried out inspection as booked & managed to get completed report to me earlier than I expected.
I would reuse this company & recommend them
(Quickest response & lowest quote)
Very friendly, professional and reasonably priced. One of the cheaper quotes we found.
Quick communication, answered all of my questions and very professional. Pleased with the survey.
The service we received was excellent. Cliff and his team worked quickly with us and our vendors to arrange a date for the survey and was extremely thorough on the day. We received the report in less working days than originally quoted and were very happy with the level of detail and explanation provided. It was also easy to reach Cliff and his team and to make payment, when we were satisfied with the report itself.
We used Cliff for a home buyers survey, very happy with the service. He arranged the survey promptly with the agent and his report was very thorough and professional he was also more than happy to answer any queries. Would certainly recommend and use again.
Always answer phone very polite and professional , would highly recommend
Over a month later and after several emails and phone calls I still have not got my survey. Due to the delay this is causing I have now had to ask another company to undertake the survey causing more inconvenience to the people that we are purchasing from. Poor communication, no survey, terrible service.
very impressed that the company could go out within a few days of my request .
when 1 received the report it was very clear and very detailed explained everything in a clear way and well presented
it was clear that a lot of time had been spent when surveying the property and I felt very reassured with the finding .
Fabulous. Would highly recommend. Thorough, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly.
**Customer chose not to give any additional comments**
Great value. They were very helpful and responsive.
Great service and great price. Very happy
RICS Home Survey Level 2
At Kirk-Brown, we are proud to offer a RICS Home Survey Level 2 or home buyers survey around Medway and Kent. You will need our homebuyer report if the property you are purchasing is less than 75 years old, built with modern materials and remains in a good condition. We can also assist with Party Wall matters.
We have carried out hundreds of homebuyers reports over the years and we make sure we bring our knowledge and skills to your survey. We will thoroughly examine the condition of the property, searching for defects that could affect you later down the line.
Finally, we will present our findings in an easy to read report, highlighting areas of concern. We will offer our expert opinion on how to tackle the issues affecting your property.
RICS Home Survey Level 3
Our RICS Home Survey Level 3, previously called the full structural survey, is vital for properties that are older than 75 years, were constructed with unusual materials and plan to undergo reconstruction work. This survey is the most in-depth as it looks at the property’s structure as well as condition.
We will assess exterior and interior walls, searching for any structural wall damage and areas of concern within the property. We usually find issues such as damp, rot and infestation during our Level 3 Home Survey.
We will put together a clear and easy to read report based on our findings from the survey, highlighting major areas for concern.
Kirk-Brown Limited Chartered Surveyor can also assess your home through a professional valuation, whether it's for your mortgage lender or something similar. The Valuation Survey is not a comprehensive property survey, however, and is typically used to satisfy the lender that the asset is worth the amount of money secured against it in the event that you default on the repayments. It will not assess the structural condition of the building but will ensure you're getting a true market value.
If you want an independent view, then know that you are fully entitled to choose your own Chartered Surveyor to truly act on your behalf. We will send out a trusted and experienced RICS registered valuer to ensure you receive the most accurate and professional valuation.
Party Wall Survey
In addition to our other surveying services, we can also assist with Party Wall matters. Whether you are the person wanting work to take place on a shared wall or you’re the adjoining owner, our party wall surveyors can draw up a Party Wall Agreement to settle a dispute.
