Based in Hove in East Sussex, we are Tate Surveying Services. We provide our chartered property surveying services across the South East and London. Our team of highly skilled RICS regulated chartered surveyors have more than 20 years’ experience in the building surveying industry. Tate Surveying Services are proud to offer friendly and reliable surveys including a RICS HomeBuyer Report and a RICS Building Survey.
Our RICS chartered surveyors are experts on property across the South East and London, meaning the most detailed and insightful reports and surveys. The Tate Surveying Services founder has been working as a surveyor since 1996, and has a range of experience across the surveying and property industry, which makes for a balanced and considered service. We're proud to be RICS regulated, which guarantees the highest levels of service and customer care.
We're licensed by RICS to provide HomeBuyers Reports in line with their industry-standard methodology. Our RICS Chartered Surveyors will undertake an in-depth inspection of the property's structural condition, producing an easy-to-read HomeBuyers Report. Each area of the property is assessed for its condition and any defects, which allows you to fully understand the overall condition of a home before you purchase it. Our RICS Chartered Surveyors are impartial, independent, and follow strict rules of conduct, which means you can trust their expert advice.
HomeBuyer Reports are a vital part of the buying process, as the report can be a vital tool in negotiating an asking price if any defects are highlighted. You'll get expert advice on how best to fix any issues, including advice about on-going maintenance and urgent structural issues. HomeBuyer Reports are recommended for modern buildings more than 10 years old, properties with traditional construction styles and materials. For any old or Listed buildings, the more in-depth RICS Building Survey is better suited.
The RICS Building Survey is an in-depth survey and report, offering a comprehensive and expert assessment of every accessible area of a property. Our RICS Chartered Surveyors have the practical, expert experience needed to diagnose the full range of property structural issues.
This report is far more detailed than a HomeBuyers Report, and is meant for old or unusual properties with a higher likelihood of long-term defects. If the property has noticeable defects such as damp, a RICS Building Survey will provide expert advice on remedial action, including costings.
If you're thinking of redeveloping the property or renovating, a Building Survey will give you all the technical information you'll need on the current structural integrity of the building.
