Independent residential building surveyor in Suffolk

I am an experienced independent surveyor, specialising in older homes, such as timber framed and clay lump properties, both common forms of construction in East Anglia, with each having its own particular attributes and defects to look out for. Using the latest technology, I’ll provide you with a detailed and comprehensive breakdown of the structure and condition of the property.

A full building or home survey can help you make a reasoned decision when buying a property.

How it works

Easy step by step process

It’s easy to get started. Book a Level 3 Home Survey (Building Survey) and check a property’s condition, construction and stability.

Get in touch

Fill in the form with the details about the property you wish to be surveyed.

I'll send you a quote

Once I've checked over the details, I'll compile a quote. If you're happy with this, I can then proceed to the survey.

The building survey

We can arrange a time that is convenient with the current occupier of the property for a full building survey to take place.

Survey report

You'll be sent the RICS Level 3 Home Survey (Building Survey) report following the survey being completed and the report being written up.

Graham Ellis, Associate Director, RICS Residential:

“On average, those who did not take out a building survey spent £5,750 in additional work to the property which could have been identified in a survey. In one case a home buyer was left with a £385,000 legal bill after not exchanging contracts on a £3.6m house purchase because rising damp was discovered, an issue which could have been identified if they had done a survey beforehand.”
