Chiltern Associates are a locally based team of independent chartered surveyors who combine a passion for surveying and assessing a wide range of property types with ensuring that our clients have all the information they need when purchasing a property. For clients looking to purchase a property in the Felixstowe area, we draw from specific experience surveying local properties in order to provide a thorough surveying service that is second to none.
Chiltern Associates are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) giving you complete confidence in our level of professionalism. We are also RICS registered valuers.
We have worked exclusively throughout Suffolk including Felixstowe and Mannigtree surveying a variety of different properties by working at a fast and reliable pace in order to ensure that our clients are provided with the information they need before entering into property negotiations. We draw from extensive local knowledge in order to properly assess each property during a survey, taking into account the local weather conditions so that we can focus on potential problem areas such as damp spots or mould.
When entering into property negotiations a Mortgage Valuation is normally required, which serves as a brief report to let the bank know whether or not the property provide sufficient security for the bank to lend upon. There are some instances in which the buyer never actually sees a Mortgage Valuation as it is often done purely for the benefit of the lender. By requesting a detailed survey and report with a professional surveying practice, you will be provided with a more thorough report as to the condition of the property as well as any and all potential problem areas and immediate defects.
Purchasing a property is one of the most important decisions you can make in your lifetime, so it is essential that you gather all the relevant information in order to avoid any potential nasty surprises later on when buying the property.
With a range of surveys available depending on the style and age of the property you are looking to buy in Felixstowe, Chiltern Associates offer three main services. These are specifically designed to ensure that our clients have everything they need when looking at a property for purchase. The services are as follows; Home Buyer Reports, Building Surveys and Valuations.
We have established a stunning reputation for fast and efficient advice when it comes to our Valuations service. This service can be tailored to suit the needs of your situation, whether you are requesting a valuation for a divorce case, probate and any other matters. Complete discretion is provided and the confidentiality of our clients is incredibly important to us.
A Home Buyer Survey is a detailed report normally conducted on a more modern property. The service includes a detailed typed up report that provides an insight into all visible and accessible areas of the property as well as offering up professional advice as to how any repairs and renovations may be undertaken.
The RICS recommends, as do we, that all pre 1900 properties be the subject of a building survey.
When it comes to older properties or properties that have undergone any drastic alterations, a Building Survey provides a thorough assessment of the condition of the property, looking at the structural condition of the property and assessing any immediate or urgent defects present within the property. Chiltern Associates has specialist experience surveying listed and historic properties, meaning that we can offer helpful insight as to the potential problems found within listed and timber framed properties.
