Based in North West Leicestershire, we are Westwood Surveyors. We are a RICS regulated friendly chartered property surveyors covering Nottingham, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Coventry, Northampton and surrounding areas. We have unique and in-depth knowledge from our many years’ experience in the industry.
We are a RICS regulated chartered surveying company and registered on several independent platforms, so you know you’re always in professional and qualified hands when you compare surveyors.
We are proud to offer a RICS Building Survey and a RICS HomeBuyer Report carried out by one of our RICS verified chartered surveyors. You’ll always be fully covered with our professional indemnity insurance, public liability insurance and employer’s liability insurance.
Westwood Surveyors’ home buyers report is suited to properties under 80-100 years old that are in relatively good condition with no reconstruction work carried out. We will thoroughly examine your property’s condition and structure and give you an overall rating of either 1, 2 or 3 with 1 meaning no repairs are needed and 3 meaning major repairs are needed.
We'll look for any hidden damage and defects and highlight them in an in-depth but easy to read report. Common issues that we’ll look out for are damp, infestation, rot and subsidence, but the homebuyer report will not be as in-depth as the building survey and won’t look under floorboards and behind walls.
One of our RICS verified chartered surveyors will then offer their expert opinion of the condition of your property and how to fix any repairs.
Full Building Survey
Our full structural survey is designed for older properties that need obvious repairs. If you’re house was constructed with unique or unusual material or if you’re looking to renovate your property, then it should have a building survey carried out. This survey is more in-depth than our homebuyer report, so we look under floor boards and behind walls to asses your property’s structure and condition.
We will look for structural damage such as any extensions or renovations that were carried out without permission. We will also give you our expert opinion and advice in regards to how to fix your repairs. We'll present our findings in a thorough and in-depth report that'll be clear and easy to understand.
