Residential Building Surveyor Canterbury
Buying a home is perhaps the single biggest investment anyone will make in their lifetime yet research indicates that only 20% of all buyers have a survey and that over a quarter of all house buyers who did not have a survey faced unexpected repair bills. Don’t be caught out!
If you are acquiring a residential property then we can help you with a Building Survey. The complete Property Audit that will tell you everything you need to know about the condition of your investment.
If you are considering alterations or improvements then we can look at those as part of the survey and provide guidance on what may be possible and if Statutory Authority Approval will be required.
As an alternative if required, we can organise a Home Buyers Report in the RICS recognised format.

With over 30 year’s experience, Mike Lilford has given advice to Landlords, Tenants, sellers and buyers on a wide range of commercial property ranging from modern office and warehouse units to workshops and lock up shops.

If you are acquiring a commercial property then a detailed Building Survey is highly recommended. This is as above a complete property audit and even includes a section purely covering the Disability Discrimination Act.
Are you acquiring a Lease?
We would recommend you consider engaging a Building Surveyor Canterbury on any Lease acquisition, but particularly on those of three years or more. There can be some substantial hidden costs within leasehold properties and landlord’s service charges and inherited defects. Many of these can be cripplingly expensive. A Building Survey will determine these prior to your commitment to purchase and ensure that you are aware of all of the potential future costs of your acquisition.
If you require a Survey to ensure your investment does not run away with your funds, then please give us a call.
