Residential Property Surveyor Canterbury

A Building Survey conducted by Cantebruy's team of chartered surveyors will identify potential issues such as dampness, structural damage, faulty systems, user misuse, or alterations that could impact the property's value or safety. This comprehensive assessment is crucial for making an informed decision about proceeding with your purchase, reconsidering, or renegotiating.

What is a property survey?

A property survey is intended to be a detailed inspection of a property’s condition. We will inspect the property and tell you if there are structural problems like unstable walls or subsidence.

We will also provide expert commentary on the property, from the type of wall to the type of glazing.

If you find for example it needs £15,000 of roof repairs, it is reasonable to ask for £15,000 off the price. Alternatively, you might ask the seller to fix the problems before you buy.
