Surveys & Valuations

A survey is always recommended by your legal advisor before purchasing or taking a long lease out on a property.

It can also be a good idea to get a Survey carried out on your property before making plans to alter a building, as it will highlight any existing issues with the property that could affect the work and make you aware of things to consider when a Specification of Works is drawn up.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Building Survey (A.K.A Structural Survey)

The Building Survey is the most comprehensible survey we offer.  For more information on this service, please see here.

  • HomeBuyers Report

The HomeBuyers Report comes in a brief reporting style with condition ratings given to the main elements of the building.  It can also include a Valuation, if required.  Find out more about the HomeBuyers Survey here.

  • Defects Report

A Defects report is a tailored report that focuses on a certain defect of a building, for example, damp.
