J P Baldwin Associates Ltd

J P Baldwin Associates are an independent, progressive firm of Chartered Building Surveyors, offering a professional but personal service, bespoke for the client’s requirements.

Our reports follow RICS Guidance Notes issued by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and provide sensible advice and recommendations in easily understood terms, enabling our clients to make informed decisions on whether or not to buy a property, or whether to re-negotiate on the price.

We offer a full range of services including:

  • Building Surveys (Commercial and Residential)
  • RICS Homebuyers Reports
  • Party Wall Matters
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Condition Surveys
  • Schedules of Condition
  • Schedule of Dilapidations
  • Construction Pathology
  • Design Services

Building Survey or Homebuyers Report?

A Building Survey provides an investigation and assessment of the construction and condition of a building. The survey will generally include impartial advice on the structure, fabric, finishes, and grounds; the exposure and testing of services are not usually covered, unless specifically requested by the client.

The report will include reference to visible defects and guidance as appropriate, on maintenance and remedial measures.

Our Building Surveys are specific to our client’s property and can be tailored to their needs if there are any particular areas of concern that need to be addressed. Reports will include a summary of our findings with digital photographs to highlight and clarify areas within the main body of the report.

The RICS HomeBuyers Report is more expansive in its content than a Mortgage Valuation but more condensed in comparison to a Building Survey. 

We suggest a HomeBuyers Report for properties of more recent and traditional construction, considered to be in a better state of repair and/or condition in comparison to an older or non-traditional property.  The HomeBuyers Report is produced via an RICS pre-printed question and answer format and minor items of disrepair which do not materially affect the value, will not normally be reported.

If you are in any doubt about the type of service or survey that you need, we will be happy to discuss your situation and provide you with advice on the next step to take.

Whatever your requirements, J P Baldwin Associates Ltd offers a comprehensive, and professional service prior, during and after acquisition.

J P Baldwin Associates Ltd provides building surveys in Bristol and surrounding areas.

Dr Bath Spa on 16 Jun 2017

It started very quickly after the first phone call. The survey was completed within a week though my husband had to call him a couple of times to obtain verbal feedback on the property. The final survey arrived as promised (7 days following the survey). Overall, it is good service and I would recommend to other people.

The service provided by J P Baldwin Associate was out of this world. The survey was extremely thorough and exceeded my expectations. John was courteous and professional at all times and provide an extremely in depth report with photographic evidence. The report recommended that further in-depth up surveys were for damp/rot and drains were conducted by other companies with more specialized equipment. Both of these organizations commented on how thorough the report from J P Baldwin associates was and how they had noticed problem areas that many surveyors normally miss. I cannot recommend J P Baldwin Associates enough.

John provided an excellent, comprehensive report which covered everything I could have asked for and highlighted problems with the property that persuaded me that I would be better looking elsewhere. An excellent service, one that I can recommend, and will in fact use again once I find a better property to purchase!
