The most common survey reports are the RICS Homebuyer Survey and the Building Survey (previously known as a Structural Survey). We also provide independent valuations for matrimonial, probate and tax matters which meet the requirements of solicitors and HMRC.
The RICS HomeBuyer Report is a detailed inspection of a property designed to provide you with useful information in a format you can easily understand.
It should help you to make a reasoned and informed judgement on whether or not to proceed with a purchase and to be clear about what decisions and actions should be taken before contracts are exchanged.
It is designed ideally for houses built since 1900, which are of conventional construction and in reasonable condition, although in some cases it may be suitable for older properties
"Thank you to everyone from your side for the service I have received so far - Everyone has been really helpful and the service was excellent."
A Building Survey is a comprehensive inspection, suitable for all property types, but especially recommended for Listed buildings, properties built before 1900 and properties in need of renovation.
It involves a detailed examination of all accessible parts of the property and is tailor-made to suit your individual needs and concerns.
It includes testing walls and floors for dampness, timbers for damage and rot and also an examination of boundaries. Outbuildings can be included if required.
"Please pass on my thanks to Paul who completed the survey, Paul called me up right after the survey to provide me with an overview of the property and what he had found. Paul also provided a really good homebuyers report. Therefore saving me from great, highly likely, costs in future. Fantastic service!"
