MAKE SURE YOUR PROPERTY IS A SAFE INVESTMENT

Our trusted, local surveyors deliver immediate (and unmatched) reports and building surveys for properties in and around Surrey, which are comprehensive and easy to understand. 

Designed to be detailed and simple to navigate, our surveys give you essential information about the property you intend to purchase and whether it is suitable for a bank to lend to.

Founded to protect your investment, our building surveys help you to determine the exact condition of a property before taking any risk with your life savings. In turn, you’ll save time and money by having an expert review and professionally assess the premises you intend to buy.

Minimise your financial risk

  1. Level 1 Condition Report: A Condition Survey is the most basic type of property survey. It focuses on a general overview of a property’s condition and highlights any areas that need further investigation.
  2. Level 2 Home Survey (Most Popular): Provides more of a detailed assessment of a property’s condition compared to Level 1 and is recommended for modern properties in reasonable condition.
  3. Level 3 Building Survey: Referred to as a Structural Survey, it’s the most comprehensive type of building survey available as it provides an in-depth assessment of a property’s condition, mainly focusing on structure. Generally recommended for older properties or buildings in poor condition that might have undergone more complex refurbishments.

Why You Need A UK Property Survey

Whether you’re buying a home for the first time or investing in a buy-to-let, a Level 2 Home Survey (Homebuyer report) will be critical to minimise any financial risk before finalising your purchase. Without a detailed assessment of the property’s condition, you might miss significant defects or issues that require attention. Plus, it will ensure legal protection in case of undisclosed defects or problems with the property that are not always apparent during an initial inspection, which can often be missed by first-time buyers new to the home purchase process.

What's included in the survey?

Customer service is in our foundations

We also offer an additional drone service that allows us to thoroughly inspect hard to see areas of the roof, which can often be problematic, like flat roof sections, box gutters or chimney flashings against roofs.

A thorough assessment of the overall condition of the property which will include the building’s interior and exterior.

Our surveyors will identify defects that can cause any issues with the value or structure integrity of the property, which will ascertain any issues with the walls, floors, windows, doors, plumbing, electrical systems and more.

You’ll be provided with specialist recommendations for repairs or maintenance works, which all include an estimation of costs involved. These recommendations will help you to understand the potential, additional costs involved in addressing the problems found during the survey.

The valuation will estimate the property’s value based on factors such as location, size, condition and comparable properties in the local area.

Here, we will provide an assessment of future risks associated with the property, such as potential problems with damp, subsidence or environmental concerns.

Valuable information regarding any possible legal issues or restrictions that affect the property, for example, rights of way, planning permission, building regulations, compliance and listed building status.

A basic outline of the property’s energy efficiency, which will include further recommendations for improvement to reduce energy consumption and lower your utility bills.

Would highly recommend using Westville Associates. Appointed Brett to act for us in regards to some party wall matters. We found him to be polite and professional with a wealth of knowledge in this field. Great communication throughout the process. Great service from start to finish.

I was recommended to use Westville Associates through a colleague to carry out a survey of a house we were looking to purchase. I couldn’t have been happier with the whole process. From start to finish, Simon was professional, punctual, through and gave good advice with issues that arose from the survey. I have and will continue to recommend Westville Associates to anyone wishing to carry out any surveys.

Simon carried out a full building survey for us on a property in Oxted. We found him to be prompt, professional, very knowledgeable, a great service all round. We would have no hesitation in recommending him and using him again.

We used Wesville Associates for a full Building Survey for our property in Claygate after a recommendation from a friend. Simon was very personable, knowledgable and professional, and was able to work around our tight timeframe. We felt in good hands from the start!

“Westville Associates undertook a homebuyers report for us prior to the purchase of our flat in Wandsworth. The service from start to finish was exemplary. Simon booked us in, undertook the inspection and presented the report to us all within 7 working days which was appreciated as time was against us somewhat. The after sales care was also great as we had several questions about the property that were dealt with over the phone. Friendly, professional and prompt service. Would definitely recommend. Rob.”

I have worked in Surbiton and the surrounding areas as an agent for over 10 years and could not recommend Simon highly enough. He has a wealth of knowledge and goes above and beyond to ensure his clients fully understand the fantastic reports he creates, unlike many other surveyors who just send a confusing report without further explanation of key points. I am so pleased Simon has set up his solo venture - Westville Associates and will be recommending him to all of my clients.
