Building Surveys in Brighton

Southdown Surveyors are an independent firm of RICS Chartered building Surveyors in Brighton and serving clients across the South East, supplying a variation of professional building services and property management services. We are RICS regulated and specialise in RICS level 3 home surveys and house surveys. A level 3 home survey is ideal if you are dealing with a property which is large, old, run-down, unusual, altered or if you are considering large-scale works.

Whilst this is a more costly process than other RICS reports, it provides more detail about the building's structure and fabrics. We offer this service at surprisingly low prices in comparison to some of our competitors. Our Chartered Surveyors supply a personal service that is tailor-made to your needs - helping you make an informed decision on your new home.

Building Surveyors in Brighton - What do we do?:

  • Thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues
  • Description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws
  • Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions 
  • Outline of the best repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity

Dependent upon the individual merits of the property, an additional charge may be applicable if you need any of the additional services we offer: 

  • The use of a ‘cherry-picker’ to allow closer access to roof areas to provide a more comprehensive assessment
  • Reinstatement cost assessment 
  • Estimated costs of repairs 
  • Valuation
  • Cost guidelines, feasibility studies, scaled floor plans and maintenance schedules

We understand that with a range of building surveying services, it can be overwhelming as to which building survey to choose. Our team are always on hand to discuss any of our services, advise on our findings or general property advice. We aim to leave you feeling assured that you are making an educated purchase of your property. If the survey identifies defects that are costly to repair, you could even save money by negotiating with the vendor. If an individual problem is identified, our Building Surveyor can provide specific defect reports. Snagging assessments can be produced for newly built or converted dwellings. Our Consultant Surveyors are available to carry out asbestos surveys (as well as sample testing), residential or commercial Energy Performance Certificates, party wall assessment, drainage surveys and fire risk assessments.

Our team are dedicated to offering a variety of building services such as party wall disputes, project management, block management and more. If you are are unsure which survey to select, we have an experienced chartered surveyor who can point you in the right direction.
