Land & Property Surveyors

Property and land surveyors are specially trained to deal with the value of physical assets, such as house, commercial and land construction projects. Property surveyors are experts in valuing properties of varying ages and checking for structural damage, building surveyors can advise you on the design and construction of new buildings and the repair and renovation of existing buildings, construction surveyors oversee construction projects, and rural surveyors are experts on environmental management, real estate, auctioning and lease reviews.

Property surveyors are an important part of the house or land buying process as they can advise prospective buyers about whether the house or land they want to buy is worth the asking price, and can also uncover any problems with the structure, exterior and interior of the house that may need fixing before the house buyer moves in.

When it comes to choosing a property or land surveyor to assess and survey the home or land you are thinking of buying, you will want a professional surveyor with plenty of experience who can do the job to a very high standard.

To help you find the right property surveyor for the job, we have put together a few handy hints about selecting a property or land surveyor:

  1. The best way of choosing a property surveyor is to get a personal recommendation from a friend or relative who has recently bought a house and has used the services of a property surveyor.
  2. If you cannot get a recommendation then contact the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, which has more than 130,000 members. Where possible you should always hire a chartered property surveyor as the RICS has guidelines to ensure surveyors all work to a very high standard.
  3. Contact a number of local property surveyors and give them details of the property so they can provide you with an estimate for undertaking the survey. This is the best way to check you are not being overcharged for their work.

A property surveyor can help you, whether you are thinking of buying a property or you want to make structural changes to your existing house. To find a property surveyor in your area use our comprehensive listings guide.
