Hughes Surveyors

Giving you peace of mind when buying a new home…

Hughes Surveyors was established in 2000 by Chartered Building Surveyor, John Hughes. John Hughes has over 22 years of experience surveying a wide range of different building types and brings his comprehensive technical understanding of building methodology to his surveying work.

We are an independent company based in Ringwood and cover Hampshire, Dorset and Devon, including the postcode areas of Southampton, Dorchester, Salisbury and Exeter. All surveys are carried out by property expert, John Hughes.

We have an excellent working knowledge of this local area and the properties in the location, so you can be confident that extensive knowledge and skill will be brought to your house survey.

As buying a house can be one of the biggest purchases in a life time, it is vital to know as much as possible about the structure and condition of the property you want to buy. At Hughes Surveyors we offer the full range of house surveys, including RICS Homebuyer Reports and Building Surveys that can be personalised to your exact requirements.

If you have any specific concerns about the property you are intending to purchase, the survey can be tailored to suit you and your property requirements. We do all we can to provide a service that is of the highest quality.

As Hughes Surveyors is an independent company, we act solely on the behalf of our clients, providing advice and assistance in a clear and impartial manner. We are a friendly and personable company, ensuring that we are available to clients should they wish to contact us for further information about the survey and report.

We aim to have reports sent out within 3 days of the survey date and we are happy to discuss the report once you have read it.

We are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Contact us today to discuss the requirements for your survey – we could save you thousands of pounds on potential future repair costs.

Very quick service and thorough report. It was written in terms that I could understand as a layperson, and my dad (a builder and carpenter) was impressed by how in-depth it was, with plenty of photos as well. It helped me to identify a potential issue with the property that I hadn't picked up on viewing, and that is being resolved by the seller before purchase, helping me to avoid a structural problem in the long run. The survey also noted the lack of fire alarm in a communal corridor, which is again being investigated prior to purchase. Although Hughes Surveyors was slightly more expensive than some of the competitors due to the lack of a homebuyer's report option, I am absolutely certain that this has saved me money in the long run as I won't be stuck with a structural problem to deal with. I did try to follow up on a couple of points following the survey and didn't get a response. Not a problem for me as I was able to get the perspective of a builder for free, but worth noting if you aren't in that position.

John was very professional and reliable with his survey. He was there for me to talk to him on the phone about the issues he identified and able to talk to tradesmen directly about said issues. The speed at which he was able to squeeze in an inspection was very much appreciated, to speed up my house buying process and I thank him for his hard work and report.

I was really pleased with this company: They offered me the cheapest price for a building survey compared to other companies. I did not wait long for the survey to be done. I received the report 2 days after the survey was conducted. The report was to a high standard and easy to understand. I would definitely reccommend them to anyone looking for a building survey to be completed.

Very good service at a really good price. John was really helpful, friendly and quick to respond to my queries. He carried out the survey within a week of me making the booking and sent me a really detailed assessment, including photos, within a few days. Thoroughly recommend, especially if, like me, you don't know where to begin when it comes to finding a surveyor.

Job done just fine; hope we don't have to use them again because we've made an offer on the house, but we would if needs be!
