Chiltern Associates have many years of experience surveying and working with properties across Suffolk. We take into account all the local geographic and environmental factors found in the local area. We are not affiliated with any large companies or estate agents, ensuring that all advice we provide is professional and impartial. We offer a range of concise and comprehensive surveys for clients looking to purchase a property in Suffolk and the surrounding area. Having built up a strong reputation around Suffolk including towns like Ipswich, we are proud to offer a truly local and independent service. Having conducted surveys on all manner of residential properties in the local area, we have the experience and the means to provide you with the detailed information you need, when you need it.


As a truly independent surveying practice we feel trust and transparency are absolutely key to the service we offer. All our surveys are detailed, honest and cover every aspect possible. The aim is not to sway clients towards or away from a purchase but to simply provide them with all the information they need to understand the sale in full and all the potential issues.

Detailed Explanation

Our work does not stop when the survey is completed and the report sent. We feel it is critical to make sure the client understands the report, the issues raised, the reasons and evidence as well as what they might mean in terms of costs and the sale itself. This is a level of service some larger practices are not able to provide and as such may leave the client unaware of the some important issues.

Why Do I Need a Survey?

Choosing to have a full building survey will give you more detailed information about the condition of the building. This information will include any areas that are in need of repair now or in the near future. This type of information is useful when planning future finances and in some rare cases can allow you to pull out of the purchase if the issues are to large to deal with. It is important to remember that purchasing a property can be one of the most important investments in your lifetime, so it is essential to enter into negotiations having looked at all the facts beforehand. A report from Chiltern Associates will save you a considerable amount of time and money and give you complete peace of mind at the same time.
