We gather scientific data that assists in determining the condition of the property and ultimately, let's you know what you are buying into - or not!

Reports accepted by lenders


Our reports are accepted by all lenders, and are frequently used by buyers to negate and lower mortgage retentions, or to negotiate the house price should significant works be identified.

Getting your report to you fast

Fast, smooth service, from taking your instruction, visiting the property, forwarding our reports, to providing availability to discuss any findings & answer questions – supporting you in making an informed and balanced decision about purchasing the property.

Caution


The majority of ‘defects’ can be solved by simple repairs or maintenance. Don't waste resources on unnecessary ‘specialist’ products that are used to mask the effects of problems, but not dealing with the underlaying cause/s

For the enlightened purchaser

The philosophies that underpin building conservation & sustainability, like ours, value the importance of accurate diagnosis & that the only way to provide longterm solutions is to identify & address the causes of the defects; simply applying chemicals or products will fail if the underlying causes have not been robustly addressed.
