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.
