So what is a survey?

A survey is a detailed inspection of your property by a highly-qualified and experienced surveyor – a HomeBuyer Report (link) ,though it is still normally 25-30 pages long, is less comprehensive than a Building Survey. (link) A Market Valuation (link) isn’t a survey at all, rather, a brief appraisal to determine value.

Our surveyor will spend a considerable time at the property you wish to purchase, inside and outside, in every room and the roof-space, and the gardens, and will then write a report which be an expert commentary on the building. It will alert you to structural problems like subsidence, walls likely to fall down or wet rot in the roof timbers. It will advise you about repairs needed such as roof replacement or rewiring.

Make the most of our surveying expertise when you buy a house. You won’t regret it.
