FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a survey take?

On average we allow 2-3 hours for the inspection of a property, this will however depend on its size and complexity. After the inspection your report will be written, the time taken will also depend on the property's size and complexity.

How long is an average Home Buyers report?

The length of the report is dependent on the size, condition and complexity of the property. In most cases a Level 3 (Building Survey) report would contain around 100 pages, whilst a Level 2 (Home Buyers) report will contain around 80 pages.

Will my report contain pictures of the property?

Yes, all of our reports contain pictures of the property and grounds.

Is everything in the property checked during inspection?

Our surveyors will do their best to inspect the entire property for issues. However the RICS & RPSA regulations state that the inspection must be non-intrusive and hence any areas that are not easily accessible may not be checked. For example: if the hatch to the loft is obstructed or concealed and opening it would cause damage to the property or safety risk to the surveyor, the loft would not be inspected.

Will the surveyor tell me if I should purchase the property or not?

Our surveyors provide overall opinion of the property based on the survey undertaken on the inspection day. However, our surveyors do not provide investment and legal advice on the purchase of the property. 

How long from day of inspection to getting the report?

Our main priority is quality and affordability. While we always strive to adhere to our schedule, we do not prioritise speed. On average, you can expect to wait 10 working days to receive your report; however, it may take longer to ensure a detailed and thorough report. We firmly believe that the writing of this kind of report should not be rushed. We understand that buying a new property is a significant financial and emotional decision, often made only once in a lifetime.
