    Survey Department

    RICS Homebuyer Report and Valuation Reports

    The RICS Homebuyer Report identifies what the surveyor considers as the most important issues that you should be aware of. By applying condition ratings of red, amber and green to the elements of the building, services, garages and outbuildings, etc, our surveyor will tell you whether the defects are serious or urgent. It also includes the surveyor's opinion of market value and reinstatement cost for your insurance purposes.

    You may only require an independent assessment of the property's value and this report includes a limited inspection, similar to a mortgage valuation.

    We also carry out valuation surveys for a variety of other purposes such as commercial valuation, landlord and tenant, marriage value, energy performance certificates, planning advice, feasibility studies etc.

    Our surveyors:

    Mark Rhodes FRICS and Steve Savage BA (Hons) MRICS, both with many years' experience on the Island.
