Market Valuations

If you are purchasing a property without a mortgage or secured loan and are uncertain about the value, or if you think you are paying too much for a new property that you are purchasing, Acorn & Associates LLP can provide a Market Valuation. Market valuations can also be provided for various other purposes, including probate and taxation.

A Market Valuation is not a Survey of the property and you should not rely on this report as a comprehensive statement of the property's condition. If you are applying for a mortgage or re-mortgaging your property the Lender will require a valuation in their own specified format essentially providing the required information for them to decide whether the property is suitable security for Mortgage Advance purposes. Check with your chosen Lender that they are willing to accept our opinion of value prior to instructing us.

RICS HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report is an economy service designed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors to provide you with an overall opinion of the general condition of the property by advising you of any urgent or significant defects or matters that may affect your health or safety. The report, where necessary, will provide recommendations where further investigations are necessary and also comment on matters that should be brought to the attention of your solicitor.

The HomeBuyer Report is designed for modern properties of traditional construction and is not recommended for older or more individual properties.

Building Survey

Your Building Survey will be undertaken by a qualified and experienced Chartered Surveyor and the report prepared in a logical, easy to read format. The report will describe any evident structural defect, together with factors that may materially affect the function, performance, value or saleability of the property. The report will also comment upon any future major maintenance considerations where appropriate. The scope of the inspection can be tailored to reflect your own individual requirements. Comments will be made on visible parts of the services (plumbing, sanitary, heating, water, gas, electrical and drainage) without making tests although where necessary advice will be given if further tests by specialist companies are deemed necessary.

A Building Survey report is suitable for larger, more unusual or older properties.

Acorn & Associates provide surveys in Canterbury and Kent

The Vendor was pushing to selling the property and I found Mark via my research on the Internet. Mark and Acorn were excellent in coming back to me, keeping me informed on progress and managed to turn the report around in a couple of days. I would highly recommend Acorn and would definitely call upon their services again when required.

I was surprised having paid £900 for a building and valuation survey to be completed that the report recommended that I needed to obtain further surveys in order to gain more information.

As much of the property is inspected as is practicable during a non-destructive visual inspection, but you will appreciate there are limitations including floor coverings, fitted carpets, heavy furnishings, stored items etc. In this case, where there was evidence to suggest there may be defects in concealed areas, further more intrusive investigations were recommended. This is considered to be in-line with good professional practice and within the terms and conditions of engagement for our Building Survey.

Mark managed to squeeze my home report within the same week I called, which was important for me, as it was urgent. I had to wait 3 days to get the final report by e mail, which is standard I suppose. Mark was available for questions afterwards.

I found the reallymoving.com website to be very helpful in finding a surveyor as I had not previously used a surveyor. In regards, to the work done by Acorn's Surveyors I was really impressed with their surveyor’s attention to detail and the speed of turnaround of the completed report. Furthermore, when I wanted to ask questions about the completed survey they were more than happy to help. I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future.

The 'reallymoving.com' site was handy & easily accessible, especially as I'm hoping to move to a different area and didn't know of any surveyors. The company, 'Acorn' which I used were speedy and efficient and their report was comprehensive and easy to understand. Thank you.
