Buying a one or two bedroom conversion

We are skilled in carrying out surveys on residential properties that have been converted into one or two bedroom apartments from larger properties
Have a building survey
Caveat emptor means buyer beware and is why you need to have a building survey to find out if there are any problems within the property; the estate agent certainly will not advise you of any.
Remember the building Surveyor that you employ will be the only person working for you with your interests at heart.
The good, bad and ugly survey
We would also like to introduce to you what we call our good, bad and ugly survey which is a building survey which is sometimes known as a structural survey which we have developed over many years, in fact several decades. We have listened to feedback from our clients and amended and altered our surveys to make them easy to read and describe issues clearly. The key factor we believe is our surveys are easy to understand in plain English but do not take our word for it call us on free phone 0800 298 5424 and ask for an example of one of our surveys to be emailed to you.
Our building surveys of leasehold and shared leasehold properties
With our building surveys of one and two or even three bedroom converted properties we are conscious you have a liability, albeit a percentage liability for the property as a whole (which is written into the leasehold or shared freehold) and as such we not only look at the particular one or two bedroom property that you are buying we also look at the bigger picture i.e. the property that this is part of and specific problems that may occur.
Why not call us on free phone 0800 298 5424 for a friendly chat about the property you are looking to buy.
If looking for your first property look out for these property problems
Estate agents do not work for you they work for the seller of the property
We could give a long list of things to look out for but we believe it is most important to understand who is on your side and who is working for the seller such as the estate agent.
