Property surveys provide a comprehensive assessment of a property’s condition, highlighting potential issues and strengths. Whether you’re buying, selling, or investing in a property, a survey gives you essential insights to make informed decisions.

At Cheke & Co, we offer a diverse range of surveys tailored to different needs. From RICS Level 2 surveys for initial assessments to specialised reports for new builds, heritage properties, and more, we have you covered.

While home inspections are often focused on identifying visible issues, our surveys delve deeper. We use advanced tools and techniques to assess various aspects of the property’s condition, offering comprehensive insights.

Absolutely. Our detailed survey reports can provide you with valuable negotiation leverage. You can use the findings to request repairs or adjustments in the property’s price based on the identified issues.

The duration of a survey depends on factors such as the property’s size and complexity.

The time taken at an inspection will very much depend on the size of the property and its general state of repair. The poorer the condition the more time will need to be spent conducting further investigations.

Our surveys are based on an inspection of the visible and accessible areas of the property on the day in question. When furniture etc is in place this can sometimes restrict accessibility. However, our surveyors are aware of particular defects to watch out for in properties of certain ages, styles, and general construction.

Following their inspection, our surveyors will then contact the client to provide a brief verbal overview of their findings and the detailed report will then be sent out within 7 working days of us having visited the property.

Firstly, not all surveyors are suitably qualified to provide advice on valuation. At Cheke & Co our surveyors retain all relevant accreditations so a level 2 survey report would not only contain advice in terms of general construction and condition etc but also include their opinion of the current market value at that time. The more detailed level 3 survey report would not normally include any reference to market value, but this can be requested of the surveyor in advance of their visit at an additional charge as would be the case with any other suitably qualified surveyor.

Yes, we’re here to support you even after the survey. If you have questions or need further clarification about the report, our team is available to provide guidance and assistance.
