Confidence through professional standards

Home Surveys Explained

A home is the most expensive purchase most people ever make. As an owner you will benefit from expert advice on the condition of your property - whether you plan to live in it, rent it out or sell it. In an RICS Home Survey an RICS professional conducts an in-depth visual inspection of the property. Their report provides an expert account of the property's condition and highlights any problems in clear and easy to understand 'traffic light' ratings.

Different homes require different types of survey. This video and the information above explains which survey we recommend for each property type. However, you should always discuss your requirements with your surveyor who will be able to advise you further.

We have recently completed a Major Works project on our block of flats with Southdown Surveyors. I am happy to advise that the whole process has been painless and successful.

The project commenced and continued with appropriate advice and guidance; from beginning to end. Progress meetings were frequent and helpful. The contractors work was appropriately inspected/supervised throughout and the scaffolding was down within days of contract completion. 

My previous experiences with major works projects were not happy ones with poor quality work, inadequate supervision and poor surveyor/contractor relationships and massive delays with scaffolding removals. 

On this occasion my fellow Directors and I felt we were fully consulted and advised on options and outcomes and delighted that we came in within a few pounds over budget.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending Southdown Surveyors for Major Works projects.
