What can we help with?

How to choose the best survey?

At Cosey Homes, we understand that you might be overwhelmed by the sheer choice of surveys available in the marketplace, which is why professional guidance is key. Get in touch and we will be happy to talk you through all the options, outlining the pros and cons of each type of survey and helping you to make a confident choice that is right for your needs.

How long does a property survey take?

It is hard to give a definitive answer without any knowledge of the property in question – its type, size and overall condition – or the depth of analysis you require. While the length of our site visit depends on all those factors, as a general rule of thumb we would allow around 3 hours for a Building Survey (Level 3).

Do you include a market valuation with every survey?

A free property valuation is included as standard in our RICS HomeBuyer Reports (Level 2), unlike many of our competitors who will charge extra for this service. For other types of survey, valuations can be requested at an additional cost.

Which survey is best for a period home?

We would always recommend a RICS Building Survey (Level 3) if you are thinking of buying an older building (including Victorian and Edwardian homes), properties situated in a Conservation Area and listed buildings. As a Level 3 Survey, this type of survey provides enough depth and detail to cover the unique features and requirements of a period character home.

Is there any point in commissioning a survey for a new-build?

Whether a property is brand new or 100 years old, an independent survey is always recommended before you buy. Sadly, even new-builds usually aren’t perfect, and the only way you can ascertain if there are any problems with the construction or materials used in the build is to have an independent property survey done.

Can I use the survey results to renegotiate the purchase price?

If the survey has flagged up unexpected defects and urgent remedial work, you are completely within your rights to raise the issue with the seller. He may offer to put things right before contracts are exchanged, or you may be able to agree a discount to cover the cost of the repairs.
