As Independent Building Surveyors we carry out residential structural surveys and commercial surveys all over Southwark, which is in Central London.
We are Independent Building Surveyors, meaning we are not affiliated to any estate agents, bank or building society and we therefore work completely independently for you and in your best interests.
Having a building survey, prepared by a chartered building surveyor, could literally save you thousands of pounds. The survey only needs to uncover one potential problem with the property and the cost of the building survey is more than recovered. We have spent decades perfecting our survey reports and each is tailor made to your specific property needs.
Within our survey reports is an Executive Summary with the Good, Bad and Ugly points in the property that we find. We add in detailed survey sketches and photographs of the property to help explain property problems we find, together with solutions to the problems and anticipated costs of works.
Our survey reports are top quality and are produced in a very fast time, as we understand the importance to you of getting the report back quickly; we aim to turn a report around within three to four days of the survey.
