Why invest in a survey?

Why get a survey before buying your dream home? You may be surprised at the hidden repair costs if you choose not to, and peace of mind is invaluable.

You wouldn’t buy a car without a full service history. So why would you consider buying your new home without a survey? From barn conversions to bungalows, mansions to maisonettes, we offer something for everyone.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is our most popular survey and is suitable for almost all property styles. For more conventional properties and newer homes, we offer the RICS Condition Report. And if you’re thinking of buying that home that needs a lot of work or is simply older or larger than average, we offer the RICS Building Survey.

The average cost of repairs discovered after purchase by homebuyers who didn’t invest in a survey is £5,750*. That’s the price of a new bathroom.
