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.

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.

Thoroughly good service from start to finish. Sarah was very pleasant to deal from the start and helped us to understand what exactly we needed from them and how much it would cost. The work we required was an ad hoc structural report for a partially removed chimney breast. Every other company I contacted would only offer a full building survey for a fixed fee, but Sarah helped us get the work we required done for a very reasonable amount. The report was emailed over when they said it would be and the hard copy followed the next day. I honestly can’t think of another company I have dealt with in recent years who have been so helpful and honest.

Very quick feedback (soft copy was received the next day), and they were able to include some additional information we requested.

We needed to have a quick turnaround on our building survey and Thorburn delivered! Within 4 days of engaging their services, we were reading the report. The survey was detailed, simple to understand and clear. Photos, pointed out those items which needed particular attention which was very helpful. In addition the property needed some TLC, so having an estimate of the cost of works made sure we were going in with our eyes open. I had a chat on the phone with Luke who talked me through some of the finer points of the survey in a very friendly manner. I would definitely use them again in future.

I found TPC to be excellent from start to finish. Sarah was very prompt in responding to emails and very helpful in arranging a survey at short notice. Malcolm and Luke carried out a full buildings survey. They were friendly and professional and took time to explain their concerns to me as well as providing a clear and thorough report the very next day. All for a very competitive fee. Highly recommended!
