Buying a property is probably the most significant financial investment you are ever likely to make, and, unfortunately, it can be stressful too. At Elevation Surveyors, we completely understand this, and our only goal is to ensure you get the best advice to protect your investment so you can purchase with confidence and peace of mind.
Elevation Surveyors provide a broad range of survey formats, however can also tailor these to fit individual requirements. We will also advise on the suitability of any intended alterations or proposals that our clients wish to undertake. We offer two broad categories of building survey formats.
This service is delivered in accordance with the Home survey standard (1st edition) RICS professional statement and is equivalent to the level 2.

This service is delivered in accordance with the Home survey standard (1st edition) RICS professional statement and has been developed to exceed the information contained in a Level 3. Extensive explanation is offered and detailed comment on the maintenance requirements of the property. Observation of the external elements of the property is with the assistance of a drone, (subject to any local restrictions), and photographic evidence of such included in the report.
Elevation Surveyors aim to make our reports comprehensive and easy to understand, rather than just a list of defects. We consider that a residential survey report should be as much about providing reassurance to the prospective purchaser as it is on reporting on disrepair. Many older buildings have inherent defects, which have been there since construction or developed as a result of how they are built. Recognising these issues, and putting them in context allows the client to purchase with confidence.
