Christopher White Associates

Christopher White Associates are a long established; independent firm of Chartered Building Surveyors. Based just outside of Colchester in the heart of the Tendring area we have established an excellent reputation locally for our friendly, prompt and professional approach to our work.

Covering all aspects of building surveying; we have specialist knowledge of building pathology and considerable expertise lies in surveying and inspecting private property prior to purchase. We offer the Full Building Survey which is usually undertaken on older properties built before the 1950’s or if a house has been extensively altered or extended or is of non-traditional construction. We also carry out the RICS Homebuyers Report which is designed for newer properties built since the 1950’s. Both reports are clear and concise covering all accessible parts of the prospective purchase.

CWA are aware of and fully understand the important decisions to be made when considering buying a property and strive to assist in any way we can to help our client’s come to an informed decision as to whether the property is a viable proposition or not. Whilst the Homebuyers Reports are in set format, our Full Building Reports can be ‘tailored’ to meet our clients requirements and we are often asked for and are willing to provide estimated costs of required work, brief specifications of work, an opinion as to whether or not extending the property would be viable and an opinion of the standard of existing works and extensions.

With over 30 years’ experience; Chris White has a wealth of knowledge about the construction of a variety of buildings and the various defects and problems that can arise either through neglect or general use and age. Over the years he has become somewhat of a specialist in older; period and listed buildings and has gained a reputation for his clear, knowledgeable yet sympathetic no nonsense approach to reporting on historic buildings.

Being an independent family run firm; CWA are not influenced by internal constraints and motives of larger companies. We offer a personal approach and direct contact with the surveyor both during and if required; after the inspection is carried out following up any questions or queries that might arise. Whilst our ‘local patch’ is the Tendring area and Colchester district; we are frequently asked; and are more than willing to travel further distances covering all of Essex and Suffolk as well as south Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

An efficent and dilligent service that gave a detailed report within a few days of first contact with the company. The report should that no stone was left unturned when the survery was carried out. Suggestions were also made relating to some aspects that were outside of the remit of the surveyor (specialist gas / electrical testing for instance). Overall it was very easy from our point of view and we were very impressed with the speed and detail of the service.

Really impressed with the quick response from Chris. He conducted a full structural survey on a Grade II listed building and produced an extremely thorough report with recommendations and actions. Very easy to deal with and contact and has been happy to field subsequent queries and emails in relation to some follow up issues. I would have no hesitation about recommending Chris to others.

A professional survey as promised carried out at short notice and with the report received more or less by return. I would not hesitate in recommending if requested.

Christopher White Associates provided a prompt and cost effective service for a homebuyer's survey. I also spoke to Chris White and found him informative and helpful with any questions I had. Certainly recommend this company to other people after a homebuyer's survey.

Really good service. Excellent communication from Chris and negotiated a cheaper price based on Chris recommending we did not need a Full Survey that we still wanted anyway. The survey was very concise, well structured and easy to understand with pictures to back up findings. Reallymoving.com was very easy to use and the responses very prompt.
