Fees for Full Building Surveys and HomeBuyer Report & Valuations
We operate a scale of fees based partly on the age of the building, partly on the price being asked (or which you have agreed to pay). This assumes the building is habitable and that the price does not reflect unusual circumstances, such as an additional area of land or advanced dereliction. The fee is inclusive of all except VAT.
Once you have asked us to survey and we have quoted you a fee, we will send you a confirmation letter and quote setting out the agreed terms. You will be asked to sign a copy of the quoter (which we enclose) and return it to us as written confirmation of your instructions.
Since a healthy cash-flow means our rates stay competitive, we ask that a cheque for the full survey fee plus VAT be enclosed with your confirmation of instructions. This cheque is banked on the day we send you the report which will include our receipted account. Should the survey be cancelled for any reason we simply post your uncashed cheque back to you immediately.
In unusual circumstances where the fee scale cannot be applied, an hourly rate is charged. All hourly rate fees are subject to petty disbursements such as telephone and travel, plus VAT at the ruling rate.
Any specialist report ordered in addition to our survey is subject to the additional agreed fee, payable direct to that contractor.

Fees for other work
In general we operate the fee scales recommended by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Where no scale exists, fees are based on the time expended plus travel and other expenses unless an alternative basis is agreed.
Buildings vary and you may have particular needs which alter the extent of service we provide. We are always willing to discuss specific projects and quote a fee basis to fully reflect the work involved. For more information concerning other work please contact us.
