Who and Why?
Why use a firm of building surveyors?
Above is a video produced by the RICS that should answer the question.
Instructing a chartered surveyor to inspect a house prior to deciding whether to purchase it, is a strong recommendation of not only the RICS, but of the Government and Which? Magazine. To ensure that you have all the relevant information to make an informed decision, we would like to provide you with that Chartered Surveyor.
We include within our building surveys expert advice on defects, the potential for development, as well as an indication of value and much more.

Our Basingstoke Surveyors can save you both time and money!
The traditional process of a survey is separated into two parts – half of the fee you pay goes towards the production of the written report, the other towards the building inspection. You can however, just pay for the inspection.
Onsite Acquisition Advice is an ideal solution for those who are on a tight timescale or perhaps do not have the budget for a full building survey. Ewan will inspect the property with the same level of detail as a full survey, but report his findings verbally on the same day.
Our party wall surveyor in Basingstoke is here to help!
Ewan Craig MRICS will be able to assist you with any aspect of the Party Wall Etc Act 1996, be it party wall notices, awards advice or even photographic schedules of condition – which can be particularly useful for preventing disputes.

As a specialist Basingstoke surveyor, Ewan Craig is able to provide a very thorough analysis of any defects that he finds when surveying your property. If you’re worried about cracks, a bowing roof, damp or any other property malady Ewan can assist you.
With his expertise in building pathology, Ewan will provide a comprehensive diagnosis of any defect, together with how it is likely to affect the property and the best way of rectifying the problem. This will all be reported in a clear and concise manner.
This service analyses the condition of the property, it is able to offer legal advice and highlights any urgent issues. It is our lowest priced service.
Major Elements Survey
Identifying and investigating any major defects throughout the property, this service is a much more concise survey and looks at only the major defects without any wasting time on obvious or minor issues.
Our building surveyors are professional and calm which comes in handy when dealing with the Party Wall Act. The act is very complex and often leaves neighbours in disputes.
Schedule of Condition
Used prior to commencing a lease or even during party wall procedures, this survey provides clients with an overview of the building's condition and usually comes with many photographs.
Schedule of Dilapidations
Similar to a schedule of condition, except this report focuses on the condition and defects that are present at the end of a lease.
Tight budget / timescale?
Getting Verbal Acquisition Advice helps meet a range of needs. You don’t need to wait for a report to be written and given to you with this service, so if you need your purchase to be completed quickly then this service is perfect for you. As the process is so much quicker, it also means that the final fee is a lot lower, great for those with a tight budget.
The surveyor simply conducts the usual investigations on your property, but rather than giving a full report, the surveyor will get back to you directly that same day to give you feedback on the survey- either face-to-face or by telephone.
