Cotswold Surveyors Survey and Valuation is an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors and estate agents offering a complete property service. We have offices prominently situated in the Cotswolds and Oxfordshire.
All of our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Our Chartered Surveyors have practiced in the area for many years and have extensive local knowledge and expertise in all types of property across Oxford and Reading.
We are a completely independent practice and are not owned by a Building Society or bank, maintaining a sole allegiance to you, our client. We take great care in the quality and content of our property reports and will always take time to discuss the survey findings with you, so that you can make an informed decision about your purchase.
A good, considered property survey can save you money and will provide you with considerable peace of mind.
There are different types of property valuations and surveys available and our summary below explains what you can expect from each type of property report.
There are two main types of survey:
1) The HomeBuyer Report
The HomeBuyer Report involves a more detailed inspection of the property than a mortgage valuation and is a service designed to provide the client with useful information on significant property defects in an easily readable and understandable format at a mid-range cost.
The HomeBuyer Report is a service designed for properties which are of conventional construction and in apparently reasonable condition.
2) The Building Survey
This is a comprehensive inspection, suitable for all property types but especially recommended for:
- Listed Buildings
- Property built before 1900
- Property which you plan to renovate or alter
- Property which has already had extensive alteration/extension
- Property which has been neglected and poorly maintained.
The Building Survey involves a detailed examination of all accessible parts of the property and can be tailor-made to suit you individual needs and concerns.
