Phillips & Co Chartered Surveyors

An Independent Chartered Surveyors Practice offering a Professional Service in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire.

We are able to assist in the following matters:

  • Residential Surveys, Valuations and Home Condition Reports
  • Planning and Development. 

We are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Independent Surveyors Association. We are not owned by or affiliated to any Estate Agents, Banks, Building Societies or Insurance Companies.

Types of Survey and Valuation

All buildings have some defects and require repairs and replacements from time to time to keep them in satisfactory condition. Roofs, walls, windows, plaster, electrical and heating systems: these and all other parts of buildings have limited lives.

We can assist you with clear information about repairs that are required, their cost, timing and priority. Appreciation of these factors will allow you to negotiate the purchase price and plan for future expenses.

We offer the following types of inspection through reallymoving.com:

  • A HomeBuyer Report – a survey done to a standard format set out by RICS
  • A Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

It is most suitable for conventional properties built within the last 150 years, which are in reasonable condition. The inspection gives some basic information on the construction of each part of the building, and advises on any significant or urgent defects.

The report includes an assessment of the cost of re-building, for insurance. It doesn't detail every aspect of the property, and only focuses on urgent matters needing attention.

It's not usually suitable for properties in need of extensive renovation, or if you're planning major alterations.

Building Survey

A Building Survey is an investigation into, and assessment of, the construction and condition of a building. It is based on a detailed inspection of the building in as much depth as is possible without damaging the building or contents.

The exact extent and style of the inspection will be the subject of specific agreement with the individual Surveyor. It may include specialist reports (services, drains, etc.).

The report will include guidance on maintenance and remedial works and often a detailed comment on individual defects. A Building Survey is essential when purchasing period buildings, those with unusual characteristics or of unusual construction. It is equally suitable for modern traditional buildings.

The fee will vary according to the type, size, value and location of the property. We will always be willing to discuss the level of fees prior to making the inspection and will sometimes make a preliminary inspection to ascertain the extent of the survey prior to quoting a fee.

I picked them as they were relatively local, so I thought they'd be more familiar with property in the area and they had good reviews.

Excellent service, survey booked in quickly and report provided the same day. I was able to speak to Neil following the survey for a more conversational overview of the property.
