Pre-Auction Assessment
The Pre-Auction Assessment has been designed in house as a tailor made solution to those looking to buy residential property at auction.  There is a strong knowledge base of auction procedure within the firm which has allowed us to design this report to exacting needs. 

Many auction purchasers look to purchase a property at auction, but do not want to commit to large expenses of acquiring a HomeBuyers Report or Building Survey knowing that there is a good chance they will be out-bid.  The Pre-Auction Assessment has been designed to be cost-effective, whilst still providing the potential buyer with a report from a qualified Surveyor, that will detail any structural issues, timber and damp issues - anything that will impact value or mortgageability, and will therefore affect the decision whether or not to buy.  We also provide a valuation for the property, helping you assess how reasonable the guide price is and to set your maximum budget.

The Surveyor will also conduct background desktop research to advise you of potential for flooding, possible contamination issues, historic coal mining activity and so on

Valuations for Probate, Matrimonial and Accounting Purposes
We can provide valuation reports for almost any purpose. This includes in cases where there is a Deceased Estate whereby the property needs to be valued to determine the amount of equity that can be transferred to any beneficiaries. Also, should you be going through divorce proceedings and need to determine the value of a marital home so that that value can be split between both parties, we can accept instructions from either party or from the Solicitor(s) dealing with the case.

  Photographic Schedules of Condition
If you are looking to take a new Lease of premises where you are required to keep them in repair, then it is essential that you have a Schedule of Condition. This detailed report identifies areas where repair or decoration is needed and can be used to protect you from future claims for Dilapidations from your Landlord.
Rental Valuations
If you are a Landlord or Tenant, and have either a rent review or lease renewal coming up, but do not necessarily want to appoint Agents to negotiate, we have a low-cost answer. A rental valuation can be prepared for one or both of the parties and it may mean that agreement can be reached without resorting to costly Arbitration proceedings. Our knowledge of local markets and market forces is excellent and we will guarantee to provide you with fair, balanced advice at a very realistic price.


Schedules of Works for Refurbishment
In addition to providing detailed Schedule of Condition for Tenants and Landlords, we can also assist purchasers with Schedules of Refurbishment works including quantities and costings which can give useful guidance in making a decision on a property. Having works costed on an itemised basis, or on a total basis per repair item, a very clear programme of works can be put together, and by giving consideration to all issues, a more informed decision can be made in full knowledge of the facts.
    Expert Witness Reports for Court Proceedings
Our Chartered Surveyors are highly experienced and very capable as credible Expert Witnesses. We are able to provide Expert advice to one party in a dispute, or as a Jointly appointed Expert on matters such as Valuation (Residential or Commercial), Dilapidations, Building and Boundary Matters and Survey issues. We currently receive instructions from numerous firms of Solicitors, either on a sole, or joint basis and we offer a very competitive fee structure.

Our knowledge, professionalism and expertise means that a fair impartial judgement can be made which minimises costs to all parties in what are, often disputes that are simple to resolve.
