Our property surveying services include:

HomeBuyer Survey and Valuation

HomeBuyers Report

Recognised by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) a HomeBuyer report is one of the most popular types of survey and is always recommended to buyers when considering a property for purchase.

The HomeBuyer Survey provides a clear, concise, jargon free report on the structural condition of a domestic property. The report contains a detailed assessment of the individual elements of the property, and uses a rating system to grade the seriousness of potential problems within all visible and accessible areas of the house.

The property inspection normally takes around two to three hours dependant on the size and condition of the property. A report is subsequently compiled to explain any defects found. The report includes a market valuation of the property. The HomeBuyer Survey and Valuation is best suited to newer properties or properties in average or good condition that are of standard construction and are less than 150 years old.

Building Survey

Building Surveys are sometimes referred to as full structural surveys, and are advisable for older properties, or if you are planning major works. Our Building Surveys give an in depth analysis of the building’s condition, detail any defects found and provide advice regarding any repairs and maintenance required. We offer Building Surveys on both residential and commercial properties.

Residential –
Also previously known as a ‘full structural survey’, a residential Building Survey comprises of a thoroughly detailed report on the condition and construction of the property, including any potential and obvious defects. A typical Residential Building Survey is much more detailed and covers a lot more bases than a HomeBuyer Report. We highly recommend our residential Building Survey for older properties and period properties as well as those of a more unusual or non-traditional construction.    

Commercial –

commercial Building Survey is exceedingly important for any business as it brings to light any potential problems or serious defects with the property before a final purchase is made. With our commercial Building Survey, we ensure to undertake a full and detailed assessment of the structure of the building, and provide expert advice and assistance with regards to potential costs for any repair work or necessary upgrading of any parts of the property. Our detailed Building Survey will give you the opportunity to potentially re-negotiate the property price if defects are detected.

We were recently appointed as surveyors for Patrick Burling Developments Ltd on a project refurbishing Wilkinson House in Telford town centre. The building needed a complete refurbishment inside and out to modernise its dated 1980s appearance. Our building survey was instrumental in completion of this great refurbishment.

Building Defect Reports

Sometimes a HomeBuyer Survey and Valuation may not be the most appropriate form of Survey. Our Building Defect Report is particularly useful for those looking to purchase a property for renovation or repair. You may want to understand the extent of a particular defect and what remedial work is required. For specific defects requiring further investigation, our Building Defect Report can be tailored to specific individual requirements.

Our highly experienced surveyors can investigate and report on any part of a building’s structure you may have concerns about. It may be you need a more in depth report on cracking or building distortion, or you need to look at issues around mortar pointing, roof coverings or damp. Whatever your specific concern, our Building Defect Report will focus on the major issue you are concerned about to give you all the information you need.
