We offer a full range of house surveys, designed to describe the condition of a property. These include the full building survey, a broader, bespoke building appraisal service, and the standard RICS homebuyers report.
To help you choose the most appropriate survey look at the list below or please contact us to discuss your requirements.
The building survey offers the greatest depth and seeks to identify and discuss the causes of defects, likely repairs and associated costs. It concludes with a prioritised summary presenting defects and also gives advice as to forecasting future repair needs, risks associated with the property and actions or enquiries to be made prior to purchase.
We know that purchasing a property is an important decision. In order to ensure that you have enough information to make it an informed decision, our surveyors can carry out a homebuyers survey to record any defects, likely repairs and anticipated associated costs.
Exceptional properties demand a bespoke service. We offer a detailed building survey for such properties, and have extensive experience in this sector. The report presents defects and liabilities for the present, a forecast for the future, and a discussion of areas of risk so that the purchase may proceed in an informed manner. The report sets out a course of action you may wish to take following the reporting process.
We maintain complete confidentiality for our clients during the survey and acquisition process and offer an approachable, accessible and flexible service throughout.
In addition to survey reports, we can provide feasibility studies and development appraisals for extension, refurbishment or development. Our in-house architects, conservation and project teams can seamlessly organise and manage works arising from such surveys.
