Philip Carruthers Ltd

Philip Carruthers Ltd is a firm of Chartered Surveyors based on the edge of Dartmoor, covering the areas of Exeter, Devon and around the South West of England.

We specialise in providing surveys for historic buildings and offering consultancy services for conservation but can undertake all survey types for residential properties and home buyers.

We undertake Homebuyer Reports and Building Surveys on all types of residential property. We can also provide a service for Home Condition Reports.

  • Homebuyer Report

This service will provide you with a detailed assessment of the structural condition of a property. It is created to the standard RICS format, so it is easy to understand and will contain the accurate information and details of the property. It can also provide suggestions about whether there would be any anticipated problems when it comes to be resold.

This survey is not appropriate for older, listed or particularly large properties.

  • Building Survey

The Building Survey is the most comprehensive residential house survey available – providing a thorough description of the construction of a property and if there are any repairs needed. It will offer suggestions for further investigation or remedial works.

We offer a service that is prompt, helpful and thorough in detail from your first contact with us until the end of our transaction. We aim to help our customers make a decision on a property based on professional expertise and honest information.

The reports we provide to our clients are in-depth and well set out for your understanding.

At Philip Carruthers Ltd, we have the expert knowledge to be able to offer advice on all aspects of property, but most notably for older, historic and listed properties.

We can additionally provide a service for:

He was very good at his job, was prompt and informative, but was pricey for the work done.

I worked over the weekend to ensure that the client got his report as soon as possible, and actually spent more time on this case than normal due to the nature of the defects. I also spent over an hour with the client at the the property after the inspection so perhaps the client did not see the work "behind the scenes"

This is the third time we have used Philip Carruthers ( after two previously aborted purchases ) On all occasions he responded promptly to all our enquiries - initial survey feedback sent by email on same day as the inspection with the on-line version received 24 hours thereafter. Excellent all round service - thoroughly recommended.

Philip Carruthers kept to the Reallymoving price and was prompt with both his survey and report. He gave verbal comments on the day and answered my questions. He also was available for further questions after giving me the report. The report was given within 2 days online and in writing within 2 working days. Altogether a good and thorough service given in a polite and personable manner.

Philip was great. He had a real feel for old houses and spent time explaining some particular issues and making sure we understood them. I would thoroughly recommend his use.
