With in excess of 15 years of Central London survey and valuation experience we are able to offer a wide range of professional services.

Buying a House

Buying a house is possibly the largest transaction that you will make. Houses in this country can span centuries and can be of many different forms of construction.

They can be subject to a large number of different defects such as subsidence, rising damp, timber decay, as well as design faults or poor workmanship. This is why it is important for you to arrange for a Chartered Surveyor to carry out a survey of your property.

The Consumer Association and Which magazine both advise that it would be advisable and prudent to arrange for a property survey by your own Chartered Surveyor. The best way to reach an informed decision on such an important investment is to have a professional property survey before you go ahead and commit yourself legally. We can provide that service.

You can minimise the risks by asking your surveyor the following: Is the agreed price reasonable? Are there any drawbacks I don’t know about? Are there any signifant defects or urgent repairs? If so what should I do about them?

Commissioning your own home survey is a simple, economic way to avoid unpleasant and perhaps costly surprises after having moved in. In some cases we have been able to identify that the price that you are paying is possibly too high or does not reflect the needed repairs that have been pointed out by the us, thus giving you an opportunity to renegotiate the price and save money.
