Testimonial of one of our Survey Reports

Thank you so much for our survey and meeting on site. I look forward to reading the report in depth but on first observing the report I am very pleased and found it easy to read, the pictures are great and help a lot. All in all a fantastic service and I am glad I found your company. I will let all my house buying friends know!


All Surveyors and all Structural Surveys are not the same

At 1stAssociated.co.uk we have spent years developing and perfecting our unique Building Surveys. We have carried out Building Surveys on everything from flats to Tudor houses, both large and small. Whether you are a first time buyer, or seasoned house purchaser, or a last time purchaser, it is not worth taking the risk of buying a property without a Structural Survey. So many things could potentially go wrong that will cost you far more money than the cost of having a Survey.

We have many unique things that you won't find in other surveys, such as our property sketches that we have developed over the years; we now have thousands of these, which help us to clearly explain to you where and what a building problem is and how to resolve it and the sort of cost we would expect you to pay.

All our Surveyors are qualified, with years of surveying experience, both in the residential and commercial sectors. All our Surveyors are members of the RICS - Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the ISVA - Independent Surveyors and Valuers Association.


We use professional equipment in our survey reports

We use the latest technology to investigate problems, including specialist damp meters to check the dampness within a house, as well as moisture meters to check condensation levels.

We take digital photographs throughout the property, both inside and outside and add these photos throughout the report, together with our unique surveying sketches; both of which make the survey reports easier to read and understand

We write the survey in a way to enable you to understand the problem and how to resolve it. We always give an 'Action Required' for any issues raised and also give you an idea of the 'Anticipated Costs' involved in sorting out any problems we find. We carry out lots of surveys in the Lewisham area.
