Residential Surveys

Buying a house

Buying a house is the largest financial commitment you are ever likely to make, and without the right support it can be a nerve-wracking and risky business. We promise to support and guide you through the process using plain English and avoiding technical jargon wherever possible.

 Choosing a survey

We’ll discuss with you the three basic reports available (Building SurveyHomebuyer Report or Condition Report) and help you to make an informed choice about which one is right for you, whether or not you decide to buy from us.

Making arrangements

Once you have decided to buy from us, we’ll make all the access arrangements with the selling agent, keeping you well informed throughout.

Early advice

Following the site inspection, we’ll call to let you know our first impressions of the property and to give a brief overview of any significant defects found.

Detailed report

After completing the report we’ll meet you to discuss the digital photographs. They will clearly show you the defects listed in the report so that you are best placed to decide on the next steps of the acquisition process.

Ongoing support

Our support doesn’t end there. You can call us for a brief discussion, even after you’ve moved into your new property, if you have queries regarding the original report or in respect of further maintenance, repair, alteration or extension works you may be considering. We may be able to put you in touch with other construction professionals or recommended trades people.
