Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Do I need a Survey?
    Technically speaking, you don't need to have a survey undertaken before you purchase a property. However, it is strongly recommended that in order to protect your investment a survey is undertaken by a suitably qualified professional.
  • What type of Survey do I need?
    The type of Survey required generally depends on the type of property, and the client's requirements. Generally, for a purpose built property built after the year 2000, an RICS Home Buyer's Survey is likely to suffice. For older properties, more likely to have defects, a full RICS Building Survey is likely to be more appropriate. For more detail on which Survey is likely to be right for you, click here.

    The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors promote and enforce the highest professional standards in the development and management of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure.

  • What are the timeframes involved?

We always aim to adhere to the following timescales: - Undertake inspection: 1 week - Prepare report: 1 week - Client feedback: Within 1-2 days of report issue We know that sometimes things are needed urgently and where possible we'll do what we can to improve timescales.
