In particular, the practice focuses on assisting clients with matrimonial and probate valuations.


These were formerly known as Structural Surveys and are the most comprehensive type of non-invasive survey inspection of a house, home or other property available. As a visitor to the property that is usually a building not owned by the client, the surveyor maynot cause any damage. They can however examine a lot more than somebody who is simply viewing the property with a view to purchasing. Based on our training and experience in building construction, the survey will enable us to write a full and detailed report to advise the property purchaser.

Any property that is older than 1900 or is a period and/or listed structure is recommended to have a full building survey.


There are several variations on the name of this kind of survey.

These include: HomeBuyers Report,  House Purchase Survey,  Major Defects Report.

These are the most common kind of report carried out on property typically built from 1900 onwards. They are a survey inspection of all the easily accessible parts of the property which will include such areas as the roofspace. For the majority of the more modern properties, this will be the most typical kind of home survey which will put a purchasers’ mind at ease. The survey involves a survey inspection followed by a detailed report which often includes a list of property defects together with an indication of how important these would be to a typical property purchaser.


A number of other building surveys and property inspections can be carried out but involve confirmation with our Chartered surveyor. These include: Major Elements Surveys, Acquisition Advice Inspections and several other variations. 

It is recommended that you call us to discuss the most appropriate type of property survey or inspection that will meet your needs as the client.
