RICS Home Surveys

Buying a new home?

We employ local MRICS chartered building surveyors, with the lead surveyor being Robert Stuart (Hons) (MRICS) a chartered surveyor for 16 years, who has dealt with a wealth of residential and commercial projects throughout the North West and London.  Moreover, he has over 20 years’ experience in the construction / surveying industry working for both local authority and city centre practices dealing with all types of domestic, commercial, retail and industrial properties nationwide.

We apply our wealth of experience and expert knowledge to accurately assess and diagnose visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws. Whilst detailed, it is written in a concise and to the point manner, as years of experience has taught us that clients find this easier to read / understand. 

You will be kept informed at all stages of the investigation as it is important that you fully understand the condition, structure and fabric of the property. During which time, we will:

  • respond to your enquiry promptly
  • establish brief details of the property and discuss any concerns you may have
  • provide a sample survey and an 'at a glance' checklist of what’s covered for your perusal
  • agree a timescale and competitive fee
  • arrange access with the agent on your behalf
  • phone you to verbally inform you of any detected issues as a result of the survey taking place
  • we will email a detailed, to the point, report typically within 3-5 working days
