The Benefits of a
Residential Property Survey

In the world of home buying and selling, residential property surveys are essential for homeowners, potential buyers, and real estate agents. Residential surveys provide in-depth insights into a home's structure, condition, and potential issues to provide peace of mind to both buyers and sellers.

 

Our proficiency in executing thorough residential building surveys guarantees that our clients navigate the property market with confidence, making well-informed choices whether purchasing, selling, or renovating their homes.

RICS Valuations and more

RICS valuations play a pivotal role in determining the market value of residential properties, guided by the stringent criteria of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. These assessments are indispensable for achieving accurate and equitable property pricing, whether for sales, purchases, or insurance purposes. Our team of chartered surveyors specializes in delivering precise RICS valuations, drawing on extensive market knowledge and adherence to professional standards to ensure trustworthy evaluations.

Beyond RICS valuations, we offer a broad array of services tailored to homeowners and potential buyers, including comprehensive home condition surveys, targeted defect inspections, and focused structural checks, all aimed at safeguarding your residential investment.

Level 2 RICS
Homebuyers Report

Level 2 RICS Homebuyers Report provides a more detailed analysis than a Condition Report, assessing the property's condition, identifying any major problems, and offering advice on repairs and maintenance. It's an essential tool for buyers who need a thorough understanding of a property's state before committing to a purchase.

Party Wall Awards

Party Wall Awards are legal documents prepared by surveyors to prevent and resolve disputes in cases where two properties share a boundary feature. Our expertise ensures that all parties' rights are protected, and construction or alterations can proceed smoothly and legally.

Matrimonial Valuations

Matrimonial Valuations are conducted to determine the fair market value of a property for the division of assets during a divorce or separation. Our impartial and accurate valuations help both parties reach equitable agreements, facilitating a smoother resolution to difficult situations.

Level 3 RICS
Building Surveys

Level 3 RICS Building Surveys offer the most comprehensive examination of a residential property, covering all accessible and visible parts. They delve into the structure's condition, highlight any defects, and provide expert advice on repairs. Ideal for older or uniquely constructed homes, these surveys ensure buyers fully understand what they're investing in.

Help to Buy Valuations

Help to Buy Valuations are specifically designed for participants in the Help to Buy scheme, providing an accurate market value required for selling, repaying, or refinancing under the program. Our valuations comply with the scheme's requirements, ensuring a smooth and straightforward process for homeowners.

Probate Valuations

Probate Valuations are necessary for assessing a property's value as part of a deceased person's estate. These valuations are crucial for legal and tax purposes, ensuring the estate is accurately represented and liabilities are correctly calculated.

What else is included in a Residential Property Survey?

Structural Surveys

Home condition surveys offer detailed evaluations of a property's overall health and architecture. They concentrate on uncovering any significant issues like dampness, timber decay, or structural weaknesses that might compromise the property's safety and worth. Our residential surveyors excel in identifying these critical concerns and delivering practical advice to ensure your home remains a safe and valuable asset.

Asbestos Surveys

Considering the health hazards posed by asbestos, conducting surveys to identify this substance in residential properties is imperative. These surveys evaluate the presence and state of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and suggest strategies for their safe management or elimination. This type of survey is particularly crucial for older homes, where asbestos was frequently utilised in building materials.

Building Surveys

Residential building surveys provide an exhaustive analysis of a home's state, covering everything from the roof to the foundations. This evaluation scrutinises the property's construction and materials, pinpointing any flaws or upkeep requirements. It's a crucial process for anyone thinking about investing in a home, delivering assurance and clear insights into the property's condition.

Land Valuations

Grasping the worth of residential property is fundamental for any purchase, sale, or renovation endeavour. Our property valuations provide precise evaluations grounded in the latest market trends, local planning laws, and potential for improvement, supporting clients in making knowledgeable choices.

Structural Inspections

Structural inspections narrow in on particular sections of a home where problems are anticipated, offering a more targeted approach than broad structural surveys. Such inspections are vital for uncovering localised issues promptly, averting expensive fixes in the future.

Defect Inspections

Defect inspections focus on specific issues within a home, including problems like dampness, mould, or structural fissures. Our specialists deliver comprehensive reports detailing the severity of the defect and its possible effects, along with advice for corrective measures.

Condition Reports

Condition Reports offer a concise overview of a home's condition, pinpointing urgent defects and maintenance needs. These reports are crucial for buyers wanting a quick assessment, helping to identify significant issues that could affect the property's safety and value.

Schedule of Conditions

A Schedule of Conditions documents the condition of a home at a certain moment. This is especially beneficial for homeowners or renters to guarantee they are not responsible for any damage or wear and tear that was present before their occupancy.
