It's not just a house, it's a Home


Having a survey is the economical way to avoid unpleasant and often costly surprises after completing your property purchase. In some cases, our surveyor's report may also enable you to renegotiate the purchase price.

1. Condition Surveys

Designed for new build and commercial properties, this survey will provide a schedule of conditionĀ that can be used to form a contract with your developer or Freeholder.

2. HomeBuyer Report

This differs from a Building Survey in that it is not as in-depth. It is intended for properties that are conventional in type and construction, and apparently in reasonable condition. A valuation of the property and insurance rebuild costs are also given.

3. Building Survey

(formerly called a Structural Survey)

This is the most comprehensive survey. ItĀ is recommended for older properties or if the property is, for example, of unusual construction, is dilapidated or has been extensively altered.

A valuation and reinstatement cost can be added by separate agreement.

4. Structural Surveys / Defect Surveys

For specific concerns such as cracking, subsidence and damp. As Chartered Building Engineers we are experienced in diagnosing such defects for private clients and institutions.
