RICS Regulated Home Surveys and Valuations

Providing confidence in your property purchase. Helping to prevent unwanted surprises (and cost).

We offer detailed property inspections and RICS Regulated reports to help guide your property purchase. You can rest assured that we will provide a comprehensive report tailored to the property in question and your specific queries giving you an insight into ongoing defects, required repairs and potential issues in the future. An RICS Home Survey report can help to save money, not only in the purchase of the property, but also by identifying issues early on before the need for more significant repairs or replacements are required. As an RICS Regulated firm you can be assured that every process involved in your inspection will be carried out to the highest possible standards and regulations. Details regarding the RICS, Regulation and Professional Practice can be found here.

How Can We Help you?

Additional services

As a surveyor, I aim to provide quality surveying services to improve your home buying experience. I am keen to discuss any specific concerns you have regarding your potential property purchase including any particular queries you may have about the property or home-buying process. I am more than happy to include telephone contact pre and/or post inspection to allow for specific concerns to be raised and provide initial feedback following the survey.

Additional services can be arranged including:

  • Pole camera inspection providing high definition images of high-level surfaces (chimneys, roof surface, guttering, etc);
  • Additional market valuation for the Level 2 survey;
  • A fast turn around report delivered within 24 hours of the inspection for when time is of the essence;
  • A paper hard copy of the report, for those of us who prefer a physical copy as well a digital copy.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual requirements and we will endeavour to assist in any way we can.

About me

Having graduated university in 2002 with a BSc (Hons) I have worked in construction and surveying for over 20 years, during which time I also took a career break to complete a specialist Masters degree in Building Surveying in 2015. I believe that my construction site-based experience gives me an increased knowledge of building technology, along with an insight into the practicalities of construction and where defects can arise. I am an independent, sole trader surveyor, which I believe allows me to control my workflow and provide more focus on each individual survey. Many corporate surveying companies push their surveyors to complete a high workload within a tight time frame, which reduces the available time spent on each inspection and report. This increases the likelihood of mistakes being made which can, ultimately, lead to expense for you, the customer.

Valuation Services

Why Use an RICS Registered Valuer?

First & foremost you have the assurance that the valuation will be carried out by a person who follows the strict RICS processes & standards applicable to the property valuation process as laid out within the RICS 'red book'.

It is important to remember that the best valuation of your property is NOT the highest valuation. The best valuation will always be a fair & objective valuation. The best property valuation is less likely to be challenged or be a source of conflict.

 Be Aware of Poor Valuation Services

Of late there has been a rise in so called FREE valuation services on-line. In our experience many if not all of these services simply provide you with an 'estimate' based on local property sales data. Even this so called FREE valuation estimate comes at a cost of you handing over both your personal e-mail address, contact number & your agreement to be contacted by members of what in effect is a sales gateway for a raft of property services.
