Overview of

Our Services

  • Market Valuations

    Valuations are undertaken for a variety of reasons including for Matrimonial, Shared-Ownership or Help to Buy, Tax Planning, Expert Witness and Reinstatement Cost Assessments for buildings insurance.

  • RICS Home Survey Level 1

    This service is designed for clients (buyers, sellers, and owners) seeking a professional and objective report on the condition of the property at an economic price. As a result, it is less comprehensive than survey level two and survey level three.

  • RICS Home Survey Level 2

    This level of service is for clients who are seeking a professional opinion on the general condition of the main elements of a property. It is, therefore, less comprehensive than a level three service. The RICS Home Survey Level 2 can also include a market valuation and an insurance reinstatement figure, as part of the service for your own purposes, if required.

  • RICS Home Survey Level 3

    This level of service is for clients who are seeking a professional opinion based on a detailed assessment of the property.

  • Commercial Surveys

    Choose this report if you’re purchasing or taking on a new lease of a commercial property.

Our Services
  • Simon was incredibly helpful when we needed a HomeBuyers report completed. We needed it quite last minute and he went out of his way to fit us in. He was really good at keeping in contact with us and very thorough with his report. He was kind enough to talk us through the report before sending out the hard copy. A breath of fresh air in what has otherwise been a stressful and frustrating time. Highly recommended.

  • We asked Simon Wilkinson to do a RICS Homebuyer Report. The survey we received was exceptionally thorough and detailed. It informed us very well. Also the additional follow up on any questions we had was very helpful for our next steps in the purchasing process. We would highly recommend his services to anyone in the area.

  • Firstly, thank you so much for your comprehensive report. Worth paying for the best.  I would highly recommend you again and for a layman such as myself, you have made the whole process easy to understand. Thank you. (My dad, a retired surveyor, read the report for me too and said it was excellent, absolutely excellent).

  • We are so grateful, Simon, for your excellent communication throughout, and for your thoughtful, full, clear and thorough report. We will definitely use you again in the future.

  • The Building Survey report is incredibly rich in content and highly informative.
