Chartered Building Surveyor, RICS Registered Valuer & Planning Consultant

Surveys & Valuations

Our surveys are personally prepared by the surveyor and individually tailored to the client’s needs. They are not made up of a series of standard phrases or prepared by a programme.

There are three main types of surveys. They are the HomeBuyer Report, Full Building Survey and a Valuation Report. Each of these has a different focus, so buyers should consider which of the three is the right choice for them.

HomeBuyer Report

A general survey of a home, including any visible defects or issues. If the property to be surveyed is of standard construction, and was built after 1960, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recommends that the HomeBuyer Report is usually the best choice. The report is delivered in a standardised format for easy reference. The HomeBuyer Report includes a valuation.

Full Building Survey

A more in-depth survey of a property, including all accessible areas of a home. RICS recommend the building survey for older properties, or those of non-standard construction. Building survey reports are tailored by the individual surveyor, and can address any additional questions or concerns. Note that a building survey does not include a valuation as standard.

Property Valuation Report

The most basic of the three, this report is primarily a valuation, and will not include details of particular defects.
