Chiltern Associates specialises in professional surveying practice working in Leiston, and across Suffolk. The experienced team draw from a wealth of knowledge to give our clients first-class in-depth surveying services designed to provide them with all the relevant information they need. From professional advice on purchasing a listed or historic property, to a valuation on a property you are planning to sell; we can help.
With over 20 years local experience in surveying a wide range of property types, Chiltern Associates work on a personal level with all clients, offering a number of different services to suit individual client needs.
As an independent chartered surveying practise, all reports conducted are completely unbiased with the sole benefit of our clients in mind, giving you peace of mind in the validity of our surveys. Purchasing a property, or even renovating or altering a listed or historic property you already own, is a huge investment for anyone to take. It is important, therefore, that clients have all the relevant information they need, such as the condition of the property, any immediate or major defects and the approximate value of the property itself.
We feel it is critical that each client receives not only a detailed survey but also a detailed explanation of what the survey contains. To this end we always contact the client after the report has been sent to offer a detailed run through of the results. We are then able to discuss any issues that have arisen, the evidence for them and the implications they may have on the purchase and the property itself. This is something that some larger practices are unable to offer but is a very important part of the surveying process.
What We Do
For clients looking at surveying services in Leiston and the surrounding area, Chiltern Associates offer three main services. These services are designed to cover a wide range of property types and where required, our professional team can provide advice on the best type of survey for your property needs.
The Enhanced HomeBuyer Report consists of a detailed survey of the property in question, followed by a typed up report that lists, in detail, the structural condition of the property and any major defects. The HomeBuyer Report lists any major and immediate defects within the property and will also pay close attention to inspecting the attic, drainage systems, structural movement and watching out for damp among other common issues.
Our Valuations service can be carried out for a number of different situations aside from selling a property, including divorce settlements and more. Our registered RICS status as surveyors means that our valuations can be used in legal situations. All Valuation reports are done in complete confidence at the request of the client.
Chiltern Associates conducts a Building Survey service designed for listed and historic properties. In principal, it works in very much the same way as a HomeBuyer Report, but will look at the interior and exterior of a property in more detail. It also takes the age of the property into account, as our surveyors are able to provide specific advice on certain historic features of older properties. A comprehensive report with full photos and advice on any defects found will be given following the survey. Chiltern Associates operates throughout Suffolk, Leiston and the surrounding area including Framlingham and Saxmundam.
