Why should you get a survey?

The video from the RICS explains the many benefits of instructing a surveyor.

Common property defects:

Our surveyor John is trained to investiage these (often hidden) defects.

Defect #1

Cracks

Cracks are amongst the most common property defects, with buildings both old and new in time often subject to cracking in one form or another.

If you’ve discovered a crack in your Shirley property - be it hairline or something more substantial - our surveyors will be more than happy to advise you of its cause and wether any remedial works are required.

Defect #2

Damp

There are several types of damp that your building in Shirley may be prone to including rising damp, penetrating damp and interstitial damp.

Our surveyors are suitably qualified and experienced to diagnose any damp problems in your property that you may be worried about and highlighting any methods that can be undertaken to rectify the issue.

Defect #3

Subsidence

A potentially serious defect, subsidence occurs when the ground beneath a property is unable to support it.

Perhaps you’re unsure as to whether the cracks in your Hampshire house are signs of subsidence or just signs of settlement – a process that usually occurs in new buildings.
If so, contact our expert surveyors who will be more than happy to assist.

"In our experience it is very unusual to find a property without a single defect; instructing us to undertake a Full Building Survey, House Purchase Survey Report or HomeBuyers Report will help give you peace of mind, the potential to save on the purchase price and the ability to plan for the future."
