The Good Surveyor Slider_Our Services

Knowing you and your unique needs helps tailor a report that is written for you and about how you will enjoy your new home. Upon completing the property survey, we will either meet onsite or provide a full debrief via telephone or video call.

This makes decision making quicker for you and helps bring the report to life. It allows us to explain any issues in more depth and answer any questions you have.

Check out are home survey options below. If you are unsure which one is best for you contact us or check out this RICS Guide.
