Home Survey Service
Our surveyor will make a visual inspection of the inside and outside of the property, all permanent outbuildings, boundary walls and fences. The surveyor will bring any equipment required, such as ladders (3m max), lighting and damp meters. The surveyor will record any visible defects and the construction materials of different areas.
From the inspection, the surveyor can provide you with a professional and easy-to-understand basic visual assessment of the property's condition.
The Survey Day
Our surveyors won't force or open up the fabric of the building. So don't worry about having to refit carpets or flooring after a visit.
If you have areas of concern that are currently inaccessible, making space for our surveyors by moving anything in the way will allow them to provide greater detail to the report.
To assist in the accuracy of the report our surveyors
will ask questions about any matters affecting the property.
When accessible, our surveyor will also provide a report on the condition of visible services such as gas, electricity and water supply.
Your property's energy rating will be included in the report if the surveyor has been provided with the current EPC (energy performance certificate).
If you are considering purchasing a property, we think it is advisable to undertake a professional survey, which will allow you to find out the exact condition of the property, including any potential issues, before the sale is completed.
We understand how important, and at times how worrying, buying a property can be, so we aim to take the stress out of this life-changing decision by providing a highly professional and experienced surveyor to make sure you are as informed as you can be the property in question.
A Level 1 Home Buyers Survey, although our most basic survey, will still give you one of our trained experts to be able to help spot and support any minor or significant underlying issues within a property that you may have missed when viewing that could save you significant time and money further down the line.
