What can we help with?

Do I really need a property survey?

It is good common sense to obtain independent expert advice before you make a huge financial commitment such as a property purchase. With a survey in place, you have the peace of mind of knowing there won’t be any expensive nasty surprises down the line.

Which survey is right for my property?

There are many different types of property survey available and it is important to choose the best one for your needs. Contact our expert team for professional guidance, so you get the right level of detail and all the facts you need to inform your decision making.

Do you test services (gas, electrics etc) during the survey visit?

By law, we are unable to test any services since Chartered Surveyors are not qualified gas or electric engineers. We will carry out a visual inspection and typically recommend further testing by a qualified professional.

What are reinstatement costs?

Reinstatement costs are usually calculated for insurance purposes. The figure represents the full cost of rebuilding the property from scratch and repatriation of any grounds and/or outbuildings.

How will the survey report be sent?

Once the survey has been completed and gone through our quality control checks, you will receive your copy as a PDF document via email. Should you require a hard copy in the post, please let us know and we can arrange this for an additional fee.

How long does it take to receive the report?

At Cosey Homes, we will do our best to work as quickly as we can to get your survey ready for you. We aim to deliver all our survey or valuation reports within 5 working days from the date of the inspection.
