Pre-sale sellers survey

 

What do we do? 

Our Chartered Building Surveyors provide full structural pre-sale building surveys for all types of residential and commercial property, including flats and properties of non-standard construction on behalf of property owners looking to sell.

Following a thorough inspection of all accessible areas of the property, you will receive a detailed building survey that provides a complete overview of the property’s condition and structural health.

We will alert you to any issues that could be flagged by potential purchasers to ensure you are prepared for any haggling that may occur as a result of the buyers pre-purchase building survey, or so you can take steps to fix any issues found before putting the property on the market. We will also advise on works that could increase the value of the house and make it more saleable.

Our aim is to assist you in making an informed financial decision relating to your property and our pre-sale building survey will provide you with essential information about the property to give you the best chance of receiving the best sale price possible for your property in the current market.

 

Turnaround

We aim to turn reports around within five to seven days from inspection and you will be able to talk directly to the surveyor working on your behalf should you have any questions.

Frequently asked questions about seller surveys

  • How much does a pre-sale building survey cost?

    You can expect to pay a fixed fee between £750 and £1200 plus VAT for a straight forward residential survey but larger or more complex properties will be more costly. The exact cost will depend on a number of factors including the size, location and age of the property.

    The prices above are indicative only. We cannot give you an exact quote until you have confirmed the property inspection address as every property is different. The professional fees payable will always reflect the particular requirements of your property and the time which it is anticipated will be devoted to the matter.
