Compare Homebuyers Surveys and Residential Building Surveys with 1st Asscociated
Why are our surveys better than the competition?
We feel our surveys are better than the competition because like for like we do not feel we can be beaten on quality or price.
When carrying out surveys our Surveyors give you an Executive Summary, which explains what the problem is, the action required and the approximate cost. We utilise digital photography and sketches that are unique to us and produce a unique survey report which we feel is the Rolls Royce of reports.
Very importantly we are independent - that means we are not owned by banks, building societies, or any form of mortgage lender and are most certainly not owned by estate agents, like many surveying companies and mortgage advisers (sometimes one company will own them all under different names).
We offer a full range of surveys, from residential building surveys to commercial building surveys on freehold properties and schedules of condition and property reports on leasehold commercial properties, to dilapidations reports, to specific defects reports on your existing home or boundary disputes, to property valuations. Our Surveyors can help give you party wall advice and expert witness advice.
