Peter Sheppard is a fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors with over 30 years of property experience.
Peter J Sheppard is a sole trader and independent chartered surveyor who is not linked to or owned by an estate agent or lending institute and as a result I only work with your best interests in mind. As a sole practitioner, I can keep my overheads down and ultimately my prices as well.
I offer quotes on the Building Surveys and I can usually save you money on the cost of the survey. I do them quickly and I feel the quality of my surveys is one of the best on the market.
Having a survey carried out on the property that you intend to buy will give you the extra peace of mind that you are buying the right one.
I offer a reasoned view, based upon my knowledge and experience; I don't make a mountain out of a molehill. Equally, if we think the property has problems I say so in a clear, jargon-free manner. I also use photographs when necessary to clarify what I am saying.
My Building survey consists of three parts; the first part contains the main report consisting of some circa 12 pages and covers all aspects of the property structure(s) inside and out and grounds, to a reasonably detailed level and itemises and provides budget costs for any identifiable defects or potential areas of concern.
The second report of circa 4 pages lists all external windows and doors individually and comments on their condition and again provides budget costs for all identifiable defects etc.
The third report of circa 4 pages lists all rooms and reviews each floor, ceiling and wall finish; again with a report on the condition thereof and with budget costs for any defects/remedial works.
Please note that, I am happy to forward a sample report should you so require.
