You Need Experienced Surveyor Simon Burrage, MSc MBA

Your Trusted Partner in Property Surveys

Our experienced surveyors will give you professional advice to help you make an informed decision before committing to a property purchase and to ensure you consider any repairs or replacements the property needs.

Our Surrey surveys will provide you with an overall professional opinion of the property, highlighting any areas of concern and summarising the condition of different property elements.  While we do not act as a legal advisor, nor will we comment on any legal documents. 

However, if, during the inspection, we identify issues your legal advisors need to investigate further, we will highlight these and refer to them in the report.

What the report includes:

Standing by Your Side Every Step of the Way

  • A physical inspection of the property
  • A report based on the inspection

Our Surrey surveyors will evaluate the overall condition of the property and, at the same time, assess it for any maintenance requirements. This will provide valuable insights into the general state of the property and highlight any issues that require urgent attention or regular maintenance, which will help owners plan for any future costs or upkeep. 

We’ll identify any visible defects, including plumbing or electric issues, that might affect the property’s value or pose risks to the building, the grounds or the people.

Based on our findings, our surveyor will provide further advice and recommendations to prospective buyers, which might include guidance on maintenance tasks, necessary repairs or further investigations. The Level 2 Report will help buyers understand the severity of any identified problems and prioritise any necessary actions. 

The Level 2 Home Survey report will serve as a comprehensive document that details all the inspection findings, including photographs and descriptions of defects, providing clear documentation and evidence for buyers to review before purchase. This vital information will help buyers negotiate with sellers and make informed decisions regarding their investment.

The survey report will point out any significant defects alongside the estimated costs involved in addressing them, which will help you budget for any necessary repairs or renovations. We’ll help you assess the financial implications of purchasing a property to understand any associated potential risks. 

The Level 2 Report will cover all environmental issues and a detailed property condition breakdown. Valuations are also possible at the end of the report to reassure you that you’re paying the right price.

What to do following the building survey

The best next steps

If repairs were advised:

You’ll want to get quotations on the work, as the cost of repairs might influence the amount you’re willing to pay for the property. So, before making legal commitments, we should get reports and quotations for all the repairs and any further investigations we might have identified. 

Please bear in mind that some repairs require contractors with specialist skills, or you may need to acquire Building Regulations permission or planning permission from your local authority for any works. Make sure all quotations are prepared in writing. 

The report could highlight areas of concern regarding the condition of a hidden part of the building if we could only see part of the defect or do not require specialist knowledge to assess part of the property fully. 

In this case, we might recommend a further investigation to uncover the true extent of the problem. While this might depend on the type of problem, bear in mind that this might require parts of the home to be disturbed, which will need to be discussed with the current owner, and the cost of these investigations might be high.

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.
