Unlike general practice surveyors, we provide specialist building surveys from expert building surveyors, whose training and experience is with structural defects and diagnosing hidden problems.

If you are buying a property in Wells, it is advisable to employ a surveyor to work on your behalf. Building surveyors can guide through all aspects of the purchase, from structural stability, to defects, and even negotiating a better price.

"Our focus is on delivering a cost-effective service - providing you with comprehensive detail and advice, for less."
The House Purchase Survey provides an excellent ‘middle ground’ and is the most suitable survey for most property purchasers. For a lower price, it takes features from the Full Building Survey, but creates a more succinct and manageable document.
The report is designed to assist property buyers, helping them make a reasoned and informed decision on whether or not to proceed with a purchase. Unlike the HomeBuyer’s Survey, its purpose is not purely to report on matters which affect the value of a property, but also on defects which affect the living environment, and maintenance considerations.
The features covered mirror the Full Building Survey, including matters such as structural movement, ventilation, damp etc. The main difference between the two reports lies in the level of detail. Therefore, it is suitable for any type of property - large or small, residential or commercial.
A building survey provides a comprehensive overview of a property and its features. It includes a detailed inspection of the property and a report designed to address the specific needs and interests of the client. As a result, it is thorough and bespoke – the highest level service from Building Surveyors designed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
A Full Building Survey can include arrangements for specialist tests, such as structural calculations or drainage assessments. With each individual defect, guidance and detailed comment is given, and costings are available.
Our expertise in finding defects early could save you thousands. A Full Building Survey should be carried out by qualified, experienced and independent Building Surveyors who has specific expertise in diagnosing, and predicting, structure and building defects.
If you're on a tight budget, our Chartered Surveyor Paul offers Verbal Acquisition Advice. Rather than paying for a full written report, you can still get the information that you require, and save money. Paul will visit the site, and carry out the same investigations that he would make for a full building survey. He will then report back directly to you the same day, either by telephone or face-to-face.
Our focus on providing a high quality surveying service has left a trail of happy clients across Wells. See more on our testimonials page.

"Thank you for your prompt service, could not have asked or expected more. I note your comments and in an ideal world everything would have been 'one'. Will not hesitate to recommend you, and will make a point of letting the estate agent know."
"Once again many thanks for an excellent survey – far better than the gentleman in Norwich who we used over here last year who failed to inspect one of the three roof spaces and another in Cambs who didn’t even get up into the loft space!"
