House surveys will give you peace of mind

1stAssociated Building Surveyors have many, many years of experience carrying out house surveys in cities, towns and villages across the UK.  If you are looking to buy a house, cottage, bungalow or flat then it is essential to have a house survey prior to committing to purchase.

Why have a house survey?

A house survey will not only give you peace of mind but will save you time and money too.

Our house surveys identify:-
         Structural concerns
         Detail building works required
         Anticipated costs of repairs and building works

You will be able to use the house survey to help to negotiate the best price for the property and it will help you avoid large costs in building repairs.  It is better to know about property issues before you move in rather than be straddled with high costs after you have moved in.

Examples of how our house surveys can help You


House survey helped vastly reduce property price

Our Building Surveyors have carried out thousands of house surveys including a Victorian terraced house, which was tenanted at the time of our inspection.  Our house survey identified problems with the chimneys and rear flat roofs as well as other issues with other elements whereby we recommended solutions and anticipated costs.   Our client brought to the attention of the vendor property issues identified in our house survey and used the report to negotiate a substantial discount on the asking price.
