Thorburn Property Consultants Ltd.

Thorburn Property Consultants Ltd are a locally based company specialising in all types of residential building surveying providing an efficient, friendly and high quality service.

We provide three different types of survey to suit the individual requirements and circumstances of our clients –

  • Valuations
  • Homebuyer Survey
  • Full Building Survey.

Our surveyors are local to the property and are members of the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors). All of our surveyors carry professional indemnity cover. We will provide you with initial, no obligation advice on the type of survey required for the property.

We pride ourselves on the professional, excellent service we offer. We make the process clear, simple and straightforward.

It is the buyer’s responsibility to uncover the defects of a property, and therefore recommended a survey is employed. With Thorburn Property Consultants, arranging a survey to take place is a simple procedure and, as it could potentially save you thousands in future repair work should there be an existing problem with the property, organising a survey is a cost-effective decision.

The report could also help you to renegotiate the purchase price if there is immediate repair work needed.

Before you decide to commit yourself legally to the purchase of a property it is important your RICS Surveyor provides the answers to the following questions for you:-

  1. Is the agreed purchase price reasonable?
  2. Are there significant problems with the property?
  3. If there are any problems, what do I need to do, and how much will it cost to rectify them?

Our reports are comprehensive and our surveying service is efficient and prompt – you will be impressed with what we have to offer.

We also specialise in other areas of surveying, including providing Dilapidation Surveys, Energy Rating Certification and Project Management, and would be happy to give you advice and free quotation with regard to additional services required.

Absolutely Fantastic! Would definitely recommend. From engagement, the survey was carried out within 2 working days. We had the report sent over on the same day the survey was completed. It was professional and very comprehensive and ended up saving us ALOT of money, as we were able to renegotiate the price of the property.

Thorburn were excellent surveyors. The practice manager Sarah was very helpful throughout the process and provided a lot of useful advice about which service would be appropriate for our needs. We ended up going for a building survey, as we were buying a 1930s property with a loft conversion. They were also very flexible when we had to reschedule the survey due to some renegotiations between us and our sellers overrunning. The report itself was extremely thorough and broke down the repairs needed into 'essential' and 'other', which was very useful. The surveyor Luke also spoke to us on the phone the day after they sent through the report. He talked us through the findings and answered our questions. His positivity about condition of the property gave us the peace of mind we needed to go ahead with our first house purchase at the price we had agreed with the sellers. Overall, I would highly recommend Thorburn. They were well priced, very professional, and most importantly, provided an excellent service.

A very friendly local company. The survey was thorough and quickly arranged with the report following 2 days later. The report was concise and specific to the property. A follow up call with the surveyor proved valuable and clarified a great deal about the property which made us feel really comfortable with going ahead with the purchase. I would use this company again.

I have seen reports from other surveyors and they are much more detailed. With each and every point being properly highlighted as being good to being a concern. This is also supported by detailed photographs which could be easily presented while describing them. As compared to that the quality of the report I received was not up to the mark. This didn't meet what I expected. I would not recommend this service

We sent a sample report to the client when we initially quoted to give an idea of the content and layout - there were no photos shown in the sample as we do not generally include them. The client didn't mention the fact that he wanted photos - had he done so at the point of booking we would have included those that were relevant to areas of concern. In our opinion the report produced was clear and detailed - it stated that there were no serious defects to the property and reported on the essential repairs & further investigations required, along with estimated repair costs. We always offer our clients (at no additional charge) a telephone conversation with the surveyor of up to 30 minutes on receipt of the report in order to discuss any concerns/queries, however so far the client has not requested a phone call.
