Redbridge Building Surveyor

If you are purchasing a property in Redbridge, please ensure that you have a building survey carried out on it. A building survey, prepared by a building surveyor could literally save you thousands of pounds. The survey only needs to uncover one potential problem with the property and the cost of the building survey is more than recovered.


The importance of having a Building Survey

Buying a property can be a very confusing time. With the Estate Agent working for the Seller of the property you need someone to help you and to ensure you don't buy a property problem and we recommend one of our Building Surveys. We are more than happy to send you examples of these.

Please contact us on 0800 298 5424.

If you book a building survey in Redbridge with 1st Associated Building Surveyors you will find that we take great pride in the quality of our building survey and produce a very detailed and comprehensive building survey report, whether it be for a residential property or a commercial property. We use plain English in our building surveys to explain any problems with the property to ensure that you understand the problems and how to resolve them. We use the latest surveying equipment, including electronic damp meters, digital cameras, thermal imaging cameras to detect heat loss.

We add photographs of the property and problems we find throughout our survey reports, together with survey sketches. We also recommend that you come along to the survey and have a chat with us so we can explain any problems we find during the survey. We offer solutions to the problems, together with an estimate of costs for solving any problems. Feedback from clients say how much they appreciate this service.
