Home buyers’ surveys should be straightforward…

A chartered surveyor shows up, inspects the property to the agreed extent, and that’s that. But more often than not, there is only so much that they can do – inevitably leading to a list of disclaimers for things they can’t inspect for themselves, like your drainage system.

Why does it matter, though?

You don’t want any nasty surprises when you’re moving into a new home. Whether it’s tree root ingress, backed up sewage – not only will a drainage survey confirm the condition of your system, it will also determine once and for all which parts of your system are your responsibility versus that of your utilities provider.

How much will it cost me?

Our prices for surveys of this type start at £195 + VAT for terraced houses, £250 + VAT for semi-detached and £300-350 + VAT for detached houses. All of our surveys include comprehensive written reports and DVDs, and the only thing we need to get started is your postcode.
