We have 25 years of experience in the local property market. Our Structural Surveys and Home Buyers Surveys and Valuations will provide you with a thoroughly detailed report on the property you’re buying and could save you hundreds if not thousands of pounds in repairs. Isn’t it better to be aware of any issues before committing to a purchase, then getting a nasty surprise later?
Being independent means that we work for you, not the lender. Our service is personalised to your particular circumstances.
Our services fall into the following broad categories:-

We appreciate that at a time when you’re handing over large sums of money, having a full structural survey carried out may seem like an unnecessary additional expense. Research by RICS (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) shows that home buyers spend an average of £5,750 in repair bills when they move in.

This is because, depending on the property, most mortgage lenders only require a basic home valuation report. While these reports confirm the current market value of the property they are just a brief inspection, and they don’t uncover structural defects, rot or subsidence. Faced with a potential repair bill in the thousands, spending a few hundred pounds on a proper structural survey suddenly seems like a sensible idea.

Take a look at our video library to see us in action, they show a number of issues we have found when looking at houses over the years, these are on site videos rather than professional takes.
