At SWL Surveyors we specialise in pre-purchase residential building surveys and valuations of properties in South West London and West London, covering the SW and W postcode areas.
South West London Surveyors is an efficient and reliable company comprising of vastly experienced Chartered Surveyors with an in depth knowledge of the properties in the local area and of the London property market.
A mortgage valuation report from your lender should never be solely relied upon when purchasing a property, so it is important that you get a full, independent house survey from a RICS surveyor with a working, local knowledge of the area you are purchasing in.
The residential property surveys we can offer to our clients are:
- Building Surveys
- RICS HomeBuyer Reports
Building Survey Explained
A Building Survey is the most comprehensive analysis of the condition of a property. If you commission a Building Survey you will be provided with information about the construction type of the property, advice on any defects with the building, and the options and cost for repair and maintenance.
The Building Survey will identify any signs of subsidence, wood rot or infestation, and an assessment of damp proofing, insulation provisions and the drains.
Photos of any areas of concern will be included.
This survey type is suitable for all properties and most notably appropriate for properties that have been altered or extended, or if you intend to make any alterations after you have moved in. It will examine all accessible parts of the building and the survey can be tailored to investigate any particular aspects of concern.
If requested, we can also meet you at the property following the survey to discuss any identified issues.
RICS HomeBuyer Report
The RICS HomeBuyer Report is a more general inspection of the main aspects of the property. It will provide you with a concise appraisal of the overall condition of the property, identifying significant defects that may affect its value.
Our regulation by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) ensures that we are kept up to date with the changing legislations and standards in the industry, so you can be assured of our professionalism.
