Knowledgeable Building Surveys to Avoid Hidden Property Issues

We have extensive experience in the local area as well as a broad range of building types. We will provide a well written, easy to understand report with helpful advice and action points with regards to the condition of the property and any issues raised. It is important to understand the complete condition of the property you are planning to buy, so Chiltern Associates’s experienced team conduct detailed reports on the property to ensure that you are not left with any nasty surprises like costly repairs after purchase.

For older properties and those needing repair, our Building Survey is a more comprehensive analysis of the condition. This survey offers detailed photographs and it also explains the faults, describes the remedies and how you can proceed to the next stage. This could certainly help you negotiate a reduction in price if required and certainly make a very informed choice about the property purchase itself.

Should you have any concerns we will discuss them with you at the outset to ensure that we can address these issues specifically in the survey and the follow up discussions.

Some examples of the projects undertaken previously by our surveyors in Suffolk are:

–  Aldeburgh: Conducted detailed building surveys of properties within the town centre, including providing essential advice on the effect of sea breeze weathering, taking into account the historic nature of the properties.
