McKinlays Residential Surveying

McKinlays Chartered Building Surveyors is a specialist, independent practice of Chartered Surveyors. We operate in the Dorchester and Torquay postcode areas and in these locations we have established an excellent reputation for second to none service we offer.

We have an unmatched knowledge of the South West of England, and all the types of properties that reside there. This expert, practical knowledge enables us to offer a variety of service to our diverse range of clients.

We are a small, friendly team of professional surveyors retaining the personal touch in each of our projects that many larger firms cannot provide. We design our surveys to ensure we meet the needs of all of our clients. We are renowned for our customer-centric approach.

Our residential surveys include:

  • Full Building Survey
  • HomeBuyer Report
  • Valuations

All surveys are detailed and comprehensive, and will be conducted by an experienced, fully qualified Chartered Surveyor.

Following the house survey, if required, we can phone you to discuss the findings of the inspection and if the property you need surveyed is currently vacant you can visit us on site so we can talk you through the conclusions gained from the survey. We can provide expert advice to help you through the process.

It is our aim to supply our clients with an electronic copy of the survey report within 3 working days, although this will differ depending on the type of survey and property. We would then issue a hard copy which would be posted first class.

If you are purchasing a property in the Dorchester or Torquay areas of the UK and you need a survey, you don’t have to look any further than McKinlays Chartered Building Surveyors. We are a qualified and experienced firm, happy to discuss your requirements with you and tailor a service to suit your needs.

We also have a commercial side to our business, offering services for commercial property transactions.

I was asked for a cheque in advance, and we made an agreement that the survey would be done within ten days. Without communicating with me, the surveyor left it to the estate agent to tell me the survey would be delayed a week. I also sensed he was not keen on client attendance after the survey, so I cancelled the survey contract.

All of our clients are asked for a cheque to be returned along with a signed acceptance letter before we undertake the survey . We do not bank the cheque until the survey is carried out. The survey would have been carried out within the 10 days as promised, but we had to postpone it for 4 days due to illness so I asked the agent to inform the client and the vendor. We always welcome our clients on site at the end of the survey and it is a feature that our clients always welcome and we are the only company that offers this service. I am afraid I don't know what the client means when he says that "he sensed" that I was not keen on his attendance. Client attendance has to obtain the Vendors permission.

A very professional service for survey and written report received. So much so we have instructed them to perform another survey having changed our minds on the initial property.

We opted for a survey where we walked around the property with the surveyor. This enabled us to ask questions on the spot and gave a better understanding of the building and its condition. Mr Cadwell from McKinlays not only offered a really thorough survey but arrived two hours early to check details like doors and windows closing properly,condition of paintwork and soakaways etc. before we arrived. He was able to give us some History of the building which was useful, pointed out things we would never have thought of and was very reassuring about the property we were buying. We would thoroughly recommend him.
