Buying a house is a difficult and expensive process. Hiring a qualified building professional helps you protect your investment. Our surveyors collectively have over 200 years of experience conducting house valuations and property surveys.

Jon Charters-Reid has been a chartered surveyor for nearly twenty-five years. When you employ our chartered surveyor services, you are getting experienced, registered valuers of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and chartered building engineers. In fact, over half of our staff are ex-trade personnel.

Our team of experienced industry professionals will provide detailed house valuations and surveys so you can ensure that the place where you and your family will live is a safe one. Much like when selecting essential care, like dentists and surgeons, choosing a quick, cheap survey is not a decision to be taken lightly. Quality and thoroughness are key to ensuring long-term safety and peace of mind for your home.

Why Get a Survey?

Getting a survey might get you a better deal on your property. Armed with all of the facts, you're in a better position to negotiate.

If there's previously unexpected damage to the property, the cost of repairs, for example, could be deducted from the original price point. As you can see, a survey is an essential part of saving money!

A Schedule of Condition is a detailed and factual record of the condition of a property. The Schedule of Condition is usually prepared for contractual reasons to establish the condition of the property at a set date in time. This is most frequently used during the beginning of a lease agreement or for party wall agreements. This can be carried out on residential and commercial premises.

A Schedule of Condition can be requested by a landlord, tennant, employer, contractor or neighbour.

Having a Schedule of Condition completed by an independent expert provides verification of the property's condition. This is important in the event any party raises a claim or negotiation.

A Schedule of Condition is different from a Condition Survey. The Schedule of Condition is a record of a building's condition accompanied by descriptive annotations and photographs, usually appended to a legal document. A Condition Survey, however, is a document prepared to identify the condition of the building with the purpose of determining what works are required, if any.
