Building Surveyor near Dorking

Types of Building Surveys Available

Thinking of purchasing a home in Dorking? Before purchasing any property in Surrey, it’s important to understand whether any reparations or renovations are required, and a detailed survey will provide you with a complete inspection of the property that identifies all visible defects or problems. Our experienced surveyors, in a easy-to-read survey report will list any noticeable defects or future potential issues like structural damage, rot or mould. In the report, we’ll also include potential costs of repairs and professional advice on what can be done to repair any defects to accurately represent the current property’s condition. Not sure which type of survey you need? Explore the different types below:

Level 1 Condition Report

Best for modern properties, as opposed to older, complex or neglected dwellings. The Level 1 report will detail the condition of the building, grounds and services, providing an assessment of the importance of defects, like legal issues or obvious risks to the building or its inhabitants. It does not include advice on repairs or ongoing maintenance, but rather recommendations for further investigations.

Level 2 Home Survey *Most Popular

The Level 2 Home Survey is best for buyers, owners and vendors who seek professional, objective reports on the condition of the main elements of any given property, including internal and external visible defects, e.g. damp, subsidence etc. The inspection will cover as much of the property as is physically possible, but will not include detailed advice on repairs.

Level 3 Building Survey

A Level 3 survey is the most detailed and thorough of all the assessments and will address the building materials, defects and remedial options, as well as potential issues related to the property’s maintenance. Best used for properties in poor condition, are larger than usual or were built prior to 1850. This survey will also be applicable in situations where a property has undergone major changes.

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.
