The following was received recently from a pleased Client :
Building Survey Southcombe Street W14 0RA
We asked Peter to survey a home we are in the process of purchasing, and after reviewing his credentials/experience over the years, we felt very confident that he would offer a great survey report for us. Not only were we correct with our assumption, but he exceeded our expectations.
We found Peter to be a consummate surveyor, very friendly and punctual every time we spoke to him.
He surveyed and then turned around the final report in a short time, which was greatly appreciated because we were on a time crunch to close on the property.
Moreover, he offered several phone consultations to discuss, in detail, the results of the survey. And because of his decades of experience in the field as well as building homes, his advice was truly valuable.
All in all, we think Peter offers world class service, and recommend him without reservation.
BUILDING (STRUCTURAL) SURVEY
In the last 10 years I have visited over a 1,000 properties and issue full reports with 48 hours.
A building survey is a comprehensive inspection to suit a given the property.
It is suitable for all properties, especially listed buildings, older properties, or buildings constructed in an unusual way, and or those requiring refurbishment.
Major and minor defects and what they could mean, the possible cost of repairs, results of damp testing on walls damage to timbers – including woodworm and rot the condition of damp-proofing, insulation and drainage (though drains aren’t usually tested), technical information on the construction of the property and the materials used the location, recommendations for any further special inspections.
A Building Survey doesn’t include a valuation, but this can be provided separately if required eg as the example data map below (properties for sale in Chelsea).
Fixed fees, including VAT, are quoted and a property can be fully surveyed at short notice with reports issued within 48 hours.
