Richard Cruise Ltd

Richard Cruise is an independent Chartered Surveyor, regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Richard Cruise specialises in providing house surveys to residential properties in and around Nottingham and the East Midlands.

In Richard’s 25 year career as a Chartered Surveyor, he has surveyed over 20,000 properties, so whether you are purchasing a flat in the centre of a city, a suburban family home, or a mansion in the countryside, with Richard Cruise Chartered Surveyors you will receive a professional and knowledgeable surveying service.

We have been described by our satisfied customers as providing a service that is highly professional, efficient and quick – one that they would recommend to others and use again. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent surveying service at a competitive price that our clients are pleased with. We respond personally and quickly to communication.

Before the exchange of contracts it is advised that every home buyer has a survey completed on the property they are purchasing. The survey will investigate the condition of the property and highlight any major structural problems existing in the property. This can then lead to re-negotiations of the property sale price or rethinking the purchase of the house altogether.

Compared to the cost of repair work which may be needed in the future had you not had it investigated – a survey can actually save you money!

Richard specialises in providing the following services:

  • HomeBuyer Report
  • Building Survey
  • Written Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Our HomeBuyer Reports are completed to the standard format set out by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. It will detail the general condition of the property and notify of any significant faults in the building that may affect its value.

It is most suitable for conventional, recently built properties.

Building Survey

A Building Survey is a more comprehensive inspection that can be adapted to suit the property and the client’s requirements. It is suitable for all properties, most notably older, less conventionally constructed buildings. It examines all accessible aspects of the house and will provide information about defects in the property, what they could mean and the possible cost of repair.

If you are unsure about which survey you need, Richard Cruise can advise the most appropriate.

Whichever survey you receive you will be issued with a clear report in a prompt manner.

I found reviews very helpful when i was looking myself, because i had no idea where to start, and therefore I am leaving one to help others. I didn't choose the cheapest quote, and i opted to use someone local and small, as i felt that they would be more likely to do a good job than a larger company or anyone using contractors. However, the quote was still competitive. I also liked the fact that Richard aimed to complete reports quickly. Not because we were in a rush, but i am terribly impatient and i think its nice to know what is happening. Richard made contact by email, following my details being entered into the site, and provided me with a quote. From me accepting his quote, to the actual survey taking place, was only a week. This was all arranged by Richard, and i didn't need to do anything. We received the email copy of the report the following morning, and the hard copy in the post 2 days later. So the whole thing was very efficient! I would definitely use him again, should we need to have another survey carried out.

Richard has done the survey very quickly, knowing I was on a tight deadline. When the report wouldn't email, he did not mind when I have offered to pick it up from his address.

Fantastic service. Richard dealt directly with the vendor's Estate Agent to very quickly arrange a date and time for the survey. The whole service was turned around efficiently with very little input required from me. Survey results were delivered by email the day after the survey, and followed up with a hard copy in the post. Would highly recommend.
