Survey Enquiry

If you are considering buying a new property it is advisable to obtain professional advice regarding the condition and general wellbeing of the property. This applies equally to first time buyers, experienced homeowners as well as property developers seeking investment.

CWA Surveyors fully understand the importance of the decisions about to be made and as such provide detailed information about the property, both internally and externally. We endeavour to inspect every part of the property that is reasonably practicable and accessible. Our reports provide a clear, concise overview of the property, noting negative defects as well as the positive elements within and around the building leaving our clients with a well informed, detailed insight of the proposed purchase.

CWA provide two types of property survey – The Full Condition Survey and The Homebuyer Report. See Choosing between Surveys.

Our reports include detailed analysis of main structural elements of the property including:

  • The roof structure and coverings, external and load bearing walls, floors and supports.
  • We check for structural integrity, dampness and condensation problems, timber decay and infestation by insect.
  • Internal finishes and services are assessed with advice given on all findings.
  • We check on any alterations and extensions that may have been carried out and provide an informed judgement as to the quality of construction and materials used.
  • Reports are written in plain language, are easily understood with colour digital photographs to back up and fully explain issues arising.

Our aim and commitment is to provide a clear understanding of all aspects of the property leaving our customers well informed and able to make a reasoned judgement with regards plans to continue or not with purchase procedures.

CWA are professionally qualified with and regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. The RICS imposes a strict Code of Conduct and method of working and insists we have comprehensive Professional Indemnity Insurance.
