Quality and Trust
By focusing on detailed advice for all our clients, we work on a personal level, suiting our service to each client’s specific needs. We provide impartial and unbiased detailed surveys and reports on a wide range of property types, we are able to make sure our clients have all the information they need to make an informed decision on the purchase of a property. With an unrivalled service provided by our experienced, professional team of chartered surveyors, we ensure complete client satisfaction for every report or survey we produce.
The Right Information
Purchasing a property of any kind is often one of the most important investments we will make in our lifetime, so it is essential to ensure that you have all the relevant information needed before proceeding with property negotiations. Our detailed surveys allow a thorough analysis of the condition of the property so as to avoid any potential reparation or renovation costs further down the line by listing any visible or immediate defects. This can potentially save our clients hundreds of pounds in reparations costs, where defects are highlighted and pointed out in good time, with specific advice given as to how these defects can be rectified.
As well as a detailed survey we also provide a detailed explanation of the report we produce. We feel this is a very important part of the process. Once the client has the report we speak to them in detail about the findings and any issues. We cover the evidence surrounding the issues and what they may mean to both the sale and the property itself in the future. This level of support is sadly not something all larger firms are able to provide.
What We Do
Chiltern Associates have been working throughout Suffolk and the surrounding areas since 1986, giving us a wealth of experience when it comes to all property types, in particular we have specific experience in surveying historic and period properties both locally and further afield. Chiltern Associates offer three main services, Building Surveys, Enhanced HomeBuyer Reports and Valuations.
Our Valuation service can be carried out in a number of situations, including divorce settlements, transfer of property, probate and other instances. Because Chiltern Associates are RICS registered valuers all of our valuations are legally recognised and can be used in court cases.

The Enhanced HomeBuyer Report includes a thorough analysis of all visible and accessible areas of the property, looking at any immediate or visible defects including the condition and construction of the property, attic inspection, drainage systems and more. This type of report is ideal for newer houses.
A Building Survey provides a similar report to that of a HomeBuyer Report, although a Building Survey will give more detail on all areas of the property. It is essential for all period or historic buildings or properties of non traditional construction. A detailed report will be typed up at the end of the survey, accompanied with full photos and professional advice on what to do about any defects that were highlighted in the survey.
We are professional surveyors with extensive experience in all property types, including historic properties, throughout Saxmundham and the surrounding area including Framlingham and Leiston. Contact Chiltern Associates today for expert advice on considering a property for purchase. We take pride in ensuring complete client satisfaction, so if you have any questions about the services we provide or you would like to arrange a meeting for a Building Survey or an Enhanced HomeBuyer Report, please do not hesitate to get in touch today.
